Restaurants, Swedish Aldgate

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

This Whitechapel restaurant takes its name from the Swedish for 'taste'. Expect, then, Scandi-influenced food and drink, served from breakfast through to dinner. There's a suitably Scandi look to the venue itself, too. 

Breakfasts options include wholesome things like Greek yoghurt with blueberry and muesli, fruit pots, breakfast sandwiches and eggs any way you like, served with avocado, Vasterbotten cheese, smoked salmon, tomatoes or peppers. Later options include raraka (potato pancake) with arctic char roe, sour cream and red onion, Swedish meatballs, or duck breast with root veg, cardamom and coffee sauce. 

Each of the wines on a short list is available by the glass, carafe and bottle. Beers and ciders are from Nils Oscar and Kopparberg, and they use Absolut and Herno gin in their cocktails.
