in a fika state of mind
Went to Fika yesterday for lunch. No photos because it was a business meeting.
The decor is lovely, white, Swedish design (or at least what I think is Swedish design since I’ve never been there). Their website is cute too. I just love that moose!
Verdict is, great food but be prepared to spend $20-$30 if you order the mains. And you should, I had the grilled chicken which was quite divine, I was trying to sop up as much of the yummy gravy as was humanly possible. The potatoes that came with my chicken were soft and just perfect.
The owner, Tasneem, came out to say hello as she knew some of my lunch companions. And then she sweetly gave us complimentary Pea Soup and Tomato Soup with bread! (Trust me when I say that the pea soup is AWESOME) But then again, I’m very biased towards soup.
The meatballs were nice too. Honestly speaking, they weren’t mindblowingly fantastic, but for someone who can’t eat the famed IKEA Swedish meatballs, I guess this is a good alternative. That, or making my own.
After that Tasneem offered us some tea and coffee too. I got English Breakfast, which was kinda bitter. I don’t even know why I ordered it, I tend to do things like that when I don’t have time to think. In the end I put like 4 tsp of sugar in it (!!!) in order to make it sweet enough. I read on someone’s blog that they have Chai Masala tea? I’ll gladly try that next time.
I’d definitely go there again. Maybe not everyday, but it’s definitely a nice place to have a treat. Plus they have great service too. The next time I go, I’d love to try their breakfast and their cakes! Anyway, check out their website, it’s pretty sweet. Oh, and they recently opened Fika Upstairs, which seats 80-100 and would be perfect for a private event.
Now I wish I had taken some photos! Oh and they had some IKEA furniture too! (or at least their glasses, hehe!)
