Bringing a superb taste of Sweden to England’s capital city of London, SMAKA is a fine eatery that combines a picturesque interior with a scrumptious food offering that creates a fantastic dining experience.
Swedish for the word ‘taste’, SMAKA provides all that cross the threshold with a delectable food offering in surroundings that are complete with plush browns, calming greys, and a wall that resembles a forest.
Simple and honest flavours are what SMAKA pride themselves on and are present in each of their dishes, which are created using only the best in locally sourced ingredients and are available to tastecard members at a fabulous price, provided they call in advance and produce their card upon arrival.
Beginning with one of the exquisite starters, where a gratifying butter bean stuffed courgette can be found alongside a delightful beef carpaccio salad, guests can consider their palate sufficiently whetted for any of the mouth-watering main courses to come.
Next up, the larger plates on show leave very little to be desired, with a host of delicious options present for all that care to partake. Particularly enticing examples of such can be seen in the tender veal burger, partnered with potato mash and peas, the divine pan-fried salmon, accompanied by a warm new potato salad, and the heart-warming smoked vegetable stew.
Sat just a stone’s throw away from such iconic attractions as the Tower of London, Old Billingsgate and the Monument to the Great Fire of London, SMAKA makes for a wonderful setting in which to stop off and enjoy a bit of respite amidst a day of exploration.
