Scandinavian Kitchen Lunch Menu

Scandinavian Kitchen’s lunch menu boasts an exceptional collection of open sandwiches. Try something fishy like Nordic smoked salmon with egg, hand-peeled prawns with herb mayo, or pickled herrings with beetroot, egg and chives. They also serve chicken meatballs with beetroot and pickles. The vegetarian offerings are equally enticing, featuring miso mushrooms with cannellini beans and sun-dried tomatoes and avocado with beetroot hummus and toasted seeds. I tried the egg salad with cress and tomatoes, which was so pretty and very tasty. These sandwiches are priced at £5 each, with the option to add a side salad (for example, pickled beetroot with apple and creamy dressing or super slaw with red cabbage, carrot, onion, pumpkin seeds) for £6.50.

For those preferring warmer dishes, Scandinavian Kitchen serves Swedish meatballs made from pork and beef with mash, lingonberry, pickles and gravy (or salads). Vegetarian meatless balls and Scandi hotdogs with various toppings are also available, ranging from £4.50 to £8.

I recommend the semla buns; choose from the cardamon flavour filled with almond filling and whipped cream or the pistachio and saffron variant with almond and blueberry filling. Other options are the love cake, a chocolate sponge with mocha and coconut icing or the dream cake, a vanilla sponge complete with coconut and caramel icing. Vegans might like the lemon and cardamon loaf, which is a homage to a lemon drizzle cake with lemon icing. The cakes cost £3.

If you can’t make it there for lunch, try breakfast instead. Indulge in rye and oat porridge with various toppings, rye banana bread with cinnamon butter, cinnamon buns, or open sandwiches, priced between £2.80 and £4.50. I can vouch for the cinnamon buns, which are so good that I’m still thinking about them! You can eat it any time of the day!
