Do you wish sometimes that you could just sample everything off of the menu? Well, one Bristol restaurant has unveiled a brand new afternoon tea menu with a wide selection of dainty portions of sweet and savoury dishes, all with a Japanese twist, allowing you to get a taste of the dining experience in an elegant way.
KIBOU Japanese Kitchen & Bar, which opened its Clifton branch in October 2021, is launching its afternoon tea menu this summer and will feature a range of sushi, sashimi and traditional Japanese sweets. Served at all their restaurants, including Cheltenham, Battersea, Clifton and Solihull, the afternoon tea combines the classic British pastime with flavours from Japan and there is also a vegetarian afternoon tea menu available too.
Beautifully presented, KIBOU’s afternoon tea arrives on an eye-catching three-tiered stand, and includes tasters of many of the group’s most popular dishes. These include dishes such as tempura prawn California roll, salmon tataki with mango salsa and sea bream nigiri, followed by signature yuzu cheesecake and Japanese garden tartlets, mochi ice cream and traditional custard dorayaki with strawberry compôte.
Priced at £19 per person for the vegetarian version and £21 per person for the classic, this elegant afternoon tea is served as standard with a choice of Japanese teas and infusions – such as delicately fragrant jasmine or the sweet and nutty notes of genmaicha – green tea with toasted brown rice. KIBOU will also offer a matcha tea option as part of their afternoon tea menu, which includes a bowl of steaming matcha tea being hand whisked at your table as part of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
Or guests can choose from a selection of accompanying drinks packages, including a glass of Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne, signature KIBOU cocktail or Junmai Tokubetsu sake, known for its creamy character with notes of pear and banana.
This Japanese-inspired afternoon tea from KIBOU is a stylish way to spend the afternoon and a great gift idea. KIBOU’s afternoon tea is available from June 20 and must be pre-booked and is available from 2.30pm to 4.30pm Sunday to Friday. Book your afternoon tea at KIBOU here.
