‘Fika’ is a Swedish term meaning to take a break. The compact, quirky Brick Lane bar and kitchen of the same name aims to create the ideal spot to enjoy a relaxing fika. We settled on the nice upstairs terrace and ordered Lax Planka – a delicious, well seasoned filet of salmon with grilled mash and dill sauce. Obviously we ordered homemade Swedish meatballs, which came with red wine sauce; I’m not sure what a lingonberry is but the jam made from it is a great accompaniment. To ensure we tested the meatballs fully, we also ordered a meatball melt with apple-wood smoked cheddar, on bread from E5. For drinking Fika has a good selection Swedish beers and an impressive Akvavit/Snaps list, but I chose the refreshing homemade peppermint and lime ice tea. I didn’t try any deserts but the pancakes and cinnamon buns looked like a good shout. Generally when I’m around Brick Lane, even for a short period of time, I feel the need for a break or a fika in Fika.
