Easter is one of my favourite times of the year for two reasons. Firstly, the 4 day bank holiday weekend. Secondly, you can indulge in as much chocolate as humanly possible without being judged.
However, over the years I have come to learn that there is, in fact, a limit to how many chocolate eggs one person can physically eat. And therefore have realised that it is best to incorporate chocolate into your diet in as many different forms as possible.
So today I am sharing with you guys 6 unique chocolately dishes that you can enjoy in London this Easter, from crepes and pancakes to churros and freakshakes…
Crepeaffaire’s Creme Egg Crepe
What’s Easter without a Creme Egg or ten, right? Well, for the entire month surrounding the Easter weekend, Crepeaffaire are serving delicious Creme Egg crepes. Find the crepes at stands in London Spitalfields, Islington, Chiswick, Wimbledon, and Westfield Shepherds Bush and Stratford.
Tapas Revolution’s Easter Churros
Available only on Friday 30th and Saturday 31st of March Tapas Revolution are serving up these extremely Insta-worthy Easter Churros. The dish is made up of a chocolate egg filled with melted white chocolate and churros. You can even find the Easter Churros in their Westfield Shepherds Bush branch, so take a break from all of the bank holiday shopping and top up your chocolate intake why you can.
Polo 24 Hour Bar X The Marshmallowist‘s Easter Menu
If you haven’t seen these impressive creations crop up somewhere in the last week or so then I’m not sure what planet you’ve been on! Polo Bar in Liverpool Street, which is open 24 hours, have teamed up with The Marshmallowist to create these beautiful stacks of Easter joy. Tuck into a hot cross bun stack with raspberry and champagne marshmallows or tackle the pancake tower challenge with the delicious toasted coconut marshmallow. The Evening Standard even called it the number 1 thing to do in London this Easter.
Sticky Fingers’ Easter Freakshake
Sticky Fingers is High Street Kensington’s American restaurant owned by the Rolling Stones’ Bill Wyman. Throughout the year they serve up a selection of mouthwateringly delicious freakshakes to accompany their menu of ribs, wings, burgers and steaks. But for this weekend only they’ve ramped up the freakshake to create the Easter Special. The Easter Bunny himself would be proud.
Doughnut Time’s Easter Doughnuts
Since launching in the UK last year, Doughnut Time has absolutely nailed every big occasion with their amazing themed doughnuts, and Easter is no exception! With Creme Eggs, Mini-eggs, Caramel Eggs and more topping these huge treats, you’re more than likely coming home with an entire box full! They even have a vegan chocolate bunny doughnut.
The Polish Bakery’s Chocolate Cakes
Here’s a very unique one for you. A little secret of mine. How about indulging in some Polish cakes? The Polish Bakery is located in Wembley and is the oldest Polish bakery in the UK. For the last 14 years they have been baking delicious traditional bread, rolls, buns and cakes and introducing them to the residents of London. Not only are their sourdough and rye breads now some of my favourites, but their cakes are simply to die for! If you order just one cake for this year’s Easter party, make sure it’s their dark and white chocolate chess cheesecake.
