Just when you thought your love affair with Nordic cuisine was over, there's The Scandinavian Kitchen. Tucked behind busy Oxford Street, you'll find over 600 products from Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland in this homely deli/ grocer. Started by two hungry Scandinavians back in 2006, The Scandinavian Kitchen remains true to its aim to stock “good food with love”. And it shows in the produce on offer, the hospitality of the staff, and the café menu. Order from the daily smorgasbord. The Swedish meatballs with beetroot and apple salad on stone-ground bread comes highly recommended. Make sure you leave room for a warm cinnamon bun before stocking your larder with rye crispbread, honey from Southern Sweden, and organic Lingonberry jam. On your way out, be sure to read the blackboard for some Scandinavian wisdom like “May the Nose be with you” and“Happiness is a warm bun”.
