For our penultimate afternoon tea of the year Jen and I decided to try something a bit different from the usual finger sandwiches and scones and booked ourselves in to BRGR.co in Soho for an afternoon in miniature. Instead of sandwiches there were three different kinds of slider; a standard cheeseburger, a salmon & prawn patty and a fried chicken slider which also came with a side of tiny fries.
The cheeseburger was well cooked as you would expect in a burger joint but pretty standard to be honest. The fish patty on the other hand was completely different and while I enjoyed the filling I didn’t think it was something that should be eaten in a bun. Finally the fried chicken slider was just heaven and I was disappointed when I glanced over the menu to see if it was available as a regular sized option only to find that no, it’s not!
There were then two puddings, a lemon curt tart which was very heavy on the pastry but perfectly balances and a tiny sliver of chocolate brownie which was insanely good. It might look tiny but it was so rich it was in fact the perfect size.
In fact you might be thinking “That doesn’t look like an awful lot of food” but it was, in my opinion, just right to give you a taste of everything without making you feel overfull.
As if that wasn’t enough we were overwhelmed by the amount to drink we were given too. Not only do you get a mini vanilla milkshake as part of the pudding selection but also an iced tea (to keep up with the afternoon tea theme) AND a glass of strawberry prosecco. For a mere £17 per person this is one of the best value for money afternoon teas we’ve done. So if you’re a bit sick of scones or know someone who isn’t a fan of finger sandwiches why not check out BRGR.co for something a little bit different?
