NORDIC BAKERY

Egg and anchovy on rye bread. Forget about drinking soya milk here. Also stocks a lot of Scandinavian chocolate, Aquavit and a really nice brand of cordial with bottles that make a cute vase in rhubarb or elderflower flavour.

GREAT THINGS IN NORTH LONDON

February 15th, 2008 | Posted by The Booyah Cook in Restaurant - (0 Comments)

This is my new favourite café in North London, Le Péché Mignon 6 Ronalds Road, London, N5 1XH.

The name means like “cute sin” – a sin you are allowed cause you can’t resist. And I tell you, I am already ADDICTED to the Croque Monsieur there!

My ONLY CRITICISM about the place is the lettuce – that Apollo / Frisée stuff that prickles the inside of your mouth. It is a non food. It is like Br’er Rabbit all over again.

Never mind. Check out the coffee:

Not too hot when you get it so you can drink it straight away. This is always a very serious consideration. And note, that is actually cows milk not soya milk as I would normally ask for.
