Those pesky Americans have a habit of taking quintessentially British things and well... making them better. Be it inviting an awe-inspiring gospel choir to join in on royal wedding proceedings, adding the genius of Steve Carell to The Office, or taking the classic jam sandwich and slathering it with peanut butter - they’re always ready to go that extra mile.
But, this offering is taking the Stateside one-upmanship to a whole new level. That’s right people, London's famous chicken wing afternoon tea is back.
The brainchild of Randy’s Wing Bar, the Ultimate High Tea Platter is doing away with raised pinkies and replacing them with some down-and-dirty munching action. Priced at £75 for two people, the stand comes complete with two juicy burgers or wraps of your choice, a mammoth portion of fries and a lip-smacking selection of the diner’s finest wings. Dripping with buffalo, Korean and hot honey, these babies are just about as far from the refined scone as you can get.
And if that wasn’t enough? The top tier is piled high with melt-in-the-mouth brownie bites. Plus, to pair with your feast, you'll get a choice of two drinks; options include, prosecco, Two Tribes draught beer, milkshakes or soft drinks.
One for your grandma? Maybe not….
