Fika – Brick Lane


Fika is such a perfect little restaurant . It’s small and cosy downstairs with a great roof terrace upstairs. The food is Swedish – some of it fairly typical: meatballs, reindeer salami, that kind of thing – and delicious. They do great hamburgers and a vegetable and bean grilled umm….mush thing, I don’t know quite how to describe it. It was great though, it’s all real comfort food and feels so healthy. I thought, or was scared even, that everything would be pickled: pickled this, pickled that but actually pickled was barely even on the menu. Although it wouldn’t be Swedish without pickled herring. It’s a bit like a little Swedish cabin with wood planks on the walls and a simple yet chic theme involving astro turf. Fika is like a comfort film, in fact it’s the “Small Time Crooks’ of restaurants. It’s definitely a favourite.
