Afternoon tea, Hilton Hotel, Shinjuku

13321016_1020715364649038_1822880850_oSeveral times a year, Hilton Hotel Tokyo holds a special themed sweets buffet and afternoon tea. This is a rare opportunity to experience Hilton chefs’ superb culinary skills and creativity.

At the moment, they are offering an “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland” themed sweets buffet that takes place between May 23rd and August 27th. Wattention staff went to try out the “Afternoon Tea with Alice” at the “Bar & Lounge ZATTA” on the 2nd floor of Hilton Hotel Tokyo.

We were guided to a nice seat near the panorama window, and since it was a Saturday, our afternoon was accompanied by a live guitar performance.

The savory dishes are placed on the fourth tray. Gazpacho, Corn and Bean Salad, Mushroom Quiche and Cesar’s Chicken Baguette-Sandwiches.

You can order a refill of the sweets as often as you like within a span of two hours. With extra 1,000 yen, you can also get ZATTA’s original “Drink Me” set which includes 6 different beverages. If you are a fan of “Alice in Wonderland,” we would definitely recommend this buffet. This is a grown-ups version of Alice’s tea party: sophisticated, elegant, and of course, delicious.
