Award-winning KIBOU Japanese Kitchen & Bar has unveiled a new afternoon tea menu with a Japanese twist.

Be one of the first to try the menu which launched this week and features a range of sushi, sashimi and traditional Japanese sweets. A vegetarian afternoon tea menu is also available.

Beautifully presented, KIBOU’s afternoon tea arrives on an eye-catching 3-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.

Guests can also choose from a selection of accompanying drinks packages, including a glass of Taittinger Brut Réserve Champagne, a signature KIBOU cocktail or Junmai Tokubetsu sake, known for its creamy character with notes of pear and banana.

Alongside this, KIBOU will also offer a matcha tea option, which includes a bowl of steaming matcha tea being hand whisked at your table as part of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony.

A stylish way to spend the afternoon and a great gift idea, KIBOU’s afternoon tea must be pre-booked and is available from 2.30 pm to 4.30 pm Sunday to Friday.

KIBOU is a Japanese hot kitchen, ramen and sushi bar. Inspired by the nostalgia of Tokyo’s bustling backstreets, it’s a laid back, eclectic, day-to-night eating and drinking den that fuses canteen-style dining with the golden age of Japanese whisky, sake and cocktail seduction.
