When it comes to standouts in Sydney’s vegan restaurant scene, Alibi Bar and Dining, tucked into Woolloomoo’s boutique Ovolo Hotel, is right up there. This totally plant-based restaurant is also gaining a reputation for its high tea offering, which goes far beyond your stock standard scones and jam (although they do make an appearance) – think pulled ‘duck’ pancakes, cashew meringues, strawberry tomato compote with basil ‘cream’, and Valrhona raspberry chocolate.
While we can't get dolled up to go to a restaurant right now, you don't have to miss out on a fancy vegan high tea. Alibi is now flogging a takeaway high tea pack in addition to their in-house offering. Looking for a cute option for your next loungeroom picnic date? On Saturdays and Sundays you can arrange to pick up a takeaway box, which comes complete with a cardboard serving tower.
The Alibi High Tea Takeaway costs $90 and feeds two people with a selection of sweet and savoury treats. There’s also the option to add beverages like a bottle of Prosecco or Perrier-Jouët ‘grand brut’ NV, or a selection of bottled cocktails. Elsewhere on the takeaway menu you'll find more plant-powered feeds like burgers, hotdogs and fancier feasts. You can pre-order for weekend pickup here.
