Joy of Christmas Feast at TWG Tea Salon
What: The ideal way to pamper yourself after all that Christmas shopping, book ahead for a table at TWG: the sumptuous downtown tea emporium is offering a delicious festive set menu this year. The main course includes decadent grilled wagyu beef with black truffle and foie gras beef jus, accompanied by charred pears poached in Red Christmas Tea -- all served with silky mashed potato and cabbage braised with veal bacon and chestnut. If that isn't enough to restore your seasonal mojo, it's followed by an extravagant yule log dessert: chocolate hazelnut sponge cake filled with tea-infused cream mousse. Some lovely Joy of Christmas Tea will round off your feast perfectly, before you have to throw yourself back outside into the ongoing marathon of relentless gift shopping. Alternatively, stay for more cake.
