Daun’s Deli – Spitalfields

There’s “norway” you’ll want to miss out on this spot 🙅🏼‍♀️

I think it’s safe to say that vegan Scandinavian food is naaaat the easiest to find 🤷🏼‍♀️

Rickard from @dauns_scandifood has set out to change that. I first tried his crab toast with seaweed caviar in 2018 at a vegan market 🐟 It’s amazing to see him make it through the pandemic and open his own place! Not only is this a cafe serving fresh food – it’s also a bar and a deli (so you can take stuff home) 👌🏼

Here’s what I ate and thought:

🧆 Swedish “meatballs” with mash, creamy gravy, lingonberries, salad & Swedish crispbread
💰 £10
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. This is a bitta me! Loved the mash, it was dreamy. Good balls, good gravy, good berries. I will say that i wasn’t fussed about the crispbread being there. A bit of a side salad is nice but I just wasn’t sure what to do with the bread. Would’ve preferred more of the rest instead

🐟 Tofish spread smörrebröd (open sandwich on Danish rye bread)
💰£4.50 or 3 for £12
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. Absolutely loved the flavours in this. Proper satisfying contrast in textures too. I’m a big sandwich gal. Will probs try to get hold of this Tofish to make my own at home
🏆 Fave dish

🧀 Scandi inspired cheese & charcuterie board with jam & crispbread
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? No. That’s not to say I didn’t enjoy some of the cheeses and meats but they didn’t all do it for me. Would’ve liked more of the cheese. Didn’t hate it but there are other things I’d order again before this

🍆 Pickled aubergine aka vegan sill w/ yoghurt, dill & pickled onions
💰 £4.50
🤷🏼‍♀️ Order again? Yes. This was a special at the time when I visited and I rated it!

🍨 In summer, they‘ll extend their weekend opening hours and add ice creams / juices to the menu 👀
