Scandinavian Kitchen - London

A couple of weeks ago we were in London for the last day of the Paralympics 2012, not lucky enough to get or afford tickets to the closing ceremony we decided to spend the day exploring London after leaving the Olympic Park.

I've already put up the post of our visit to Choccywoccydoodah, so now I'm going to tell you about our trip to the Scandinavian Kitchen earlier that day. After going to Norway 2-4 times a month over the last year up until June we now haven't been in a little while so need to stock up on a few bits and pieces and get some traditional lunch.

The Scandinavian Kitchen can be found at 61 Great Titchfield Street, London W1W 7PP - you won't miss it, it's bright red!  A lovely cafe with real scandi food and lots of tempting treats to buy including chocolate, cupboard ingredients and even meat!

Now the food, of course the food! I couldn't write about this place and not talk about it could I? Traditional cakes, sandwiches and hotdogs - if you haven't been to a Scandinavian country you simply won't understand about the hotdogs I'm afraid, a bit similar to bockwurst but more slimline looking. They have these on most street corners in Norway and we still have a few packets in the freezer to keep up going, I guess it's their version of fish'n'chips.

We decided to go for some open-faced sandwiches, or 'topless' ones as they called them. I have to say this was a big adjustment when we moved over there, as kids we were used to think Kingsmill slices, two of them! Not one slice of seedy brown bread topped with a bit of salad and egg - now I don't want to eat anything but. We had three slices each of rye bread topped with smoked salmon, egg and prawn - all of the best ingredients!

They also gave free coffee refills, according to my mum this is the mark of a good coffee shop, and the coffee itself was great so she was happy!

We also of course had to look around the food section, aware of the fact we had to spend the day walking about London so we didn't want to carry too much - but we still bought quite a bit! Check out our haul, we did get a few other bits but they're secrets for others for Christmas so can't put them on here :D
