5 Things We’re Excited to Eat and Drink This March

This month, we’re excited to eat popcorn octopus, raspberry swirl bread, Earl Grey Battenberg cake and more.

Afternoon Tea at Deane House

On Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 2 to 4 p.m., Deane House offers a special afternoon tea dining experience. Enjoy savoury bites like smoked salmon gougère, Fogo Island shrimp salad and chicken salad tartlet, then tuck into sweet treats like sea buckthorn and meringue profiterole, Earl Grey Battenberg cake and candied fennel shortbread. Afternoon tea is $55 per person for adults and $27 per person for children.

Take your morning toast to the next level with Glamorgan Bakery’s raspberry swirl bread. You can skip your usual jam topping thanks to the swirls of raspberry preserves mixed into the white loaf, and enjoy the sugar-apricot glaze on top.

When dining at Kama, there are plenty of tempting snack options, but the one we’ve got our eye on is the popcorn octopus. Served with a mojo verde sauce, the dish promises a crispy and delicious start to your meal at this Mediterranean restaurant (which just so happens to be on Avenue‘s best new restaurants list for 2023).

This new Mexican restaurant has been getting lots of attention since opening at the end of January, and the tempting cocktails are just one of the reasons. As the name suggests, charred tomatillo is the star of this martini, which the restaurant infuses in vermouth. The addition of San Luis Potosi Derrumbes and Cazadores Reposado finishes the drink off.

This Victoria Park restaurant recently launched a brunch menu that is available on Saturdays and Sundays. While dishes like lamb shakshuka and quiche Lorraine may be tempting, we understand if you’re most drawn to the foie gras French toast. This luxurious dish features thick slices of custard dipped brioche from East End Bread, which are topped with pan seared foie gras, Manhattan macerated cherries, whipped cream and maple syrup reduction.
