Raw - La Suite West || Vegan Afternoon Tea

Since transitioning to a vegan lifestyle I've been scoping the web for a vegan afternoon tea and came across Raw at La Suite West - a boutique hotel in West London, it offers it's guest a selection of vegan friendly, dairy free and raw dishes.






I booked myself and a friend to try out their vegan afternoon tea priced at £21pp. My friend has a gluten and berry allergy, so asked if they could cater for her dietery requirements to which they were able to provide. 


The restaurant was minimalist, decorated in black and white, with black marble floors and a low light ambiance, it had a Japanese feel to it with the wooden sliding doors, unfortunately I forgot to take a picture, they also offer there guest free WiFi.

We were given a menu to choose from their tea selection which  -Darjeeling, Chamomile Flowers, Peppermint Leaf, Earl Grey, Jasmine Silver Needle, Jade Sword Green Tea & Hibiscus - my friend had the jasmine and I had the hibiscus, they arrived in these gorgeous clear tea pots and was it unlimited.



The first course was a selection of finger sandwiches and savoury canapes brought to us on black slates - they were delicious, the scrambled tofu was my favourite and my friend got a selection of gluten free sandwiches. I could of eaten a plate full of the warm savoury canape. You can view the menu by clicking HERE



Gluten Free Selection

Our second course was warm home-made scones served with fresh Strawberries & whipped Coconut Cream.






My friend got a bowl of mixed tropical fruits which she devoured. We both found the scones to be very sweet, a bit too sweet for our taste buds, but we did finished the lot. The coconut whipped cream melted into the scone which really completely it, topped with the fresh strawberry, I was enjoying every morsel....it definitely made a change from strawberry jam, which the waiter did offer but I declined.


Gluten Free & Berry Free

We were both full by this point and rested before tucking into our third and final course. It was a selection of baked and raw desserts.. Now if you have a sweet tooth (to which I don''t) you will definitely love the desserts. The chocolate dessert was rich and decedent, I really wanted to finish it but I just couldn't, the raw banoffee dessert was good too.


The staff were very friendly and attentive to our needs, and I will definitely be going back to try their A La Carte menu and who knows maybe even book a room for me and the hubby to enjoy the whole experience, with a vegan cooked breakfast. 

 (A discretionary 12.5% service charge will be added to your bill)
