A British chain of restaurants and tea rooms is launching a light-hearted menu that includes dishes such as Jeremy Corbynara and and Theresa Maple and Carrot Soup, to commemorate the June 8th snap elections just announced by Prime Minister Theresa May.

The Tea Terrace restaurants and tea rooms, which has two branches in Central London and one in Guildford (Surrey), announced that it will be serving the elections menu throughout the month of May.

The menu features five dishes -- a starter, three main courses and a dessert -- all of which have names inspired by the political parties competing in the general election, according to Ehab Shouly, Co-Founder and Director of The Tea Terrace.

"We are aware that many people in the country are tired of elections, and that's a discussion we've heard many of our customers have following Mrs. May's announcement. So we wanted to lighten the mood a little bit for our customers," Shouly said.

He added that he hopes to get a feel of the way people will vote during the general election by keeping track of which of the dises on the menu are ordered the most. "It's not scientific but perhaps it will shed some light on the outcome," Shouly joked.

According to the menu, the five dishes in The Tea Terrace's UK General Elections menu are as follows:


Starter:
Theresa Maple and Carrot Soup: a delicious and creamy soup made with pureed carrots and maple syrup.

Mains
Jeremy Corbynara: not a labour-intensive pasta, made with spaghetti, fresh cream and bacon.

Liberal Democrabs Linguine: A comforting dish of creamy linguine pasta "liberally" sprinkled with chunks of white crab meat with peas and cherry tomatoes.

U-Kipper Risotto: a delicious mediterranean vegetable risotto topped with flakes of smoked kippers

Dessert
Paul Nuttalla and Banana Crepe: a UKIP favourite and a beloved classic

"This is not the first time we have done a kind of a political menu. During the American presidential elections we also launched a menu featuring dishes like Trumpkin Soup and Grab them by the Pudding," Shouly said.

The Tea Terrace is a modern interpretation of a traditional English tea room, yet it is also a fully-fledged restaurant serving a full breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea menu.

"Since the prime minister announced the snap elections, we've seen that a lot of the discussions happening around the dining tables at our restaurants have been on the subject of the elections," Shouly pointed out.

He said many customers have expressed fatigue at the prospect of another election. "People are just tired of voting I guess. So we're helping them a little by poking a bit of innocent fun at the elections" Shouly added.
