Food: Scandinavian Kitchen

A day’s shopping on Oxford Street is an experience many of us have had over the years, but where it reigns supreme in high street fashion names, it severely lacks in decent places to eat. Tourists are left to put up with McDonalds and Starbucks, completely unaware that hidden behind Oxford St is a maze of streets and roads that hold some amazing places to eat.

There are two places on Great Titchfield Street that I’ve discovered recently, and the first is Scandinavian Kitchen (I’ll write about the other one soon). This cafe gets ridiculously busy at lunchtime, both for eat-in and takeaway orders, but also to find some new culinary delights at the Kitchen’s own shop.

I tucked into a plate of meatballs with 3 different side salads: potato, mixed bean and ‘pizza’ (comprised mainly of cabbage).

We also couldn’t resist sharing a slice of homemade apple cake which was beautiful!

Wandering around the shop, the packaging was all so eye-catching and colourful, I was tempted to buy a load of items despite not always knowing what things were!

Please somebody tell me what this is!!

I’m sure the staff get fed up of people taking pictures of the food with rude English meanings, but I couldn’t help chuckling at these sweet treats:

So next time you’re on Oxford St, veer north and try somewhere local, unique and yummy.
