My quest for ethnic food in London recently brought me to Frith Street in Soho for a Russian lunch at Zima; an airy eatery smack in the middle of buzzy Soho. It offers traditional Russian food with a modern twist and of course lots of vodka. I liked its airy feel and casual décor and if you choose a table by the window it’s an amazing place for a spot of people watching.
It took a while for someone to come over to take my order, but in their defence, there were no other customers there and I ninja-ed to my table by the window.
The place wasn’t exactly hopping with other eaters, but having said that, I was there at noonish on a Saturday. People did start popping in by the time I had finished my food.

I hadn't been to Spitalfields Market in a while, but when I went back a few weekends ago, I happened on loads of new food stalls. At least, they were new to me. One of them was a food stall run by Rök Smokehouse & Bar. They've got two proper restaurant locations in London; one in Upper Street and one in Shoreditch. Their menu is influenced by old Nordic cooking techniques and they specialise in cured and brined meat dishes which are all cooked on fire and most of them are accompanied by fermented and pickled side dishes. Heart warming dishes for winter weather like duck pate with knackebrod, pork with carawaykraut and pigeon with Jerusalem artichokes.
