Scandinavian Kitchen is delicious, bright and beautiful. Its aim is to create a little bit of relaxed Scandi-cool in London and provide ex pats and Scandi enthusiasts alike with the kind of food that you'd get if you popped into a shop or cafe in Copenhagen, Stockholm or Oslo. Its bright red frontage and glowing lights draw you in, be it winter or summer. If you're not in the locality of Great Titchfield Street, near London's Oxford Circus then you can also order online and get your herring, or rye bread delivered all over the UK.
Colleagues come back from lunch, glowing and happy as they open up their cool packaged boxes and tuck into an assortment of delights. Hot dogs slathered in onions and mustard, or herrings on rye with beetroot and pickled cabbage salads. This is the kind of food which has been sending foodies crazy over the last few years. Noma in Copenhagen regularly tops the best restaurants in the world lists and now you can have it all in London.
If you like milky coffees and cinnamon buns, then you'll love this place. If you're looking for a crunchy fresh lunch with maybe a vinegar or sour cream twang, then look no further. Scandinavian kitchen actually opened up in 2006, when a Dane and a Swede met whilst looking for food which reminded them of home; finding no such shop or cafe in London, the opened their kitchen, and the rest as they say is history.
