Restaurants, Swedish Ladbroke Grove
Guy Dimond

Time Out says

This Portobello Road café and restaurant has a firmly Nordic feel – the food and drink is Swedish and the staff are all Scandinavian. Well, except those describing themselves as 'wannabe Swedes'. Blonde hair, great skin and an affinity with social democracy is all a state of mind anyway, right?

The eponymous Lisa has departed for pastures new but a focus on traditional Swedish home-style cooking remains. Expect, then, meatballs, Swedish fish stews, 'koldolmar' (a white cabbage roll with red lentils, mushrooms, onion, garlic and herbs) and 'pytt i panna' (a Swedish hash of pork sausage with ham, potatoes, onion, pickled beetroot and raw egg yolk).

And outside of those classic Swedish options? There are chicken sandwiches, beetroot and blue cheese salads and granola with yoghurt and poached pear. Keep an eye out for live music and DJ sets, too.
