By now all of you already know I'm addicted to English afternoon tea, which is why today's post may come as a surprise. Today's afternoon tea review is for the ultimate American afternoon tea: nachos, waffles and New York cheese-cake, all served with thirst-wrenching lemon iced teas! Not your typical delicate English tea set, huh?
You may not have expected this but Dan Ryan's is actually one of my favorite afternoon teas in town. There's several branches in Hong Kong, but I almost always go to the one in Kowloon Tong. This was even more the case during my 3 years at City University, I looooved going there once a week since I lived at just 5 minutes walking distance! Every time someone wanted to meet up and didn't really have an opinion on where to go, I'd suggest Dan Ryan's at tea time. Which is why it's kind of unbelievable that I haven't blogged about it until now! The light is always dim so the pictures didn't come out the best, but I think my photoshop skills sort of made up for it.
Each set comes with a main dish and a drink. I definitely recommend having iced lemon tea, it comes with free unlimited refill! I remember I used to love having this set before my tennis training in college, I was so high on sugar it acted like dopamine on my body! Crazy! For the main dishes, I like nachos the best, they are way too yummy. The New York cheese-cake and the carrot cake are equally delicious. The waffles are nothing special, and the potato skins are just too little of a portion, so I wouldn't bother ordering those. There's a couple other options besides these I mentioned.
Let me know how you like it! It's specially nice to visit Dan Ryan's around the main American festivities (Halloween and Christmas), the place is decorated to the max!
