This typically stark Scandi smokehouse is the result of Rök Shoreditch's success, offering the same fermented-and-fired formula. Nab the window seat for airy Upper Street spying, or head to the rear for a snugger corner near the open kitchen. Below The Smoke enthusiasts will appreciate a handful of muscular cocktails paired with a choice of pickled and flavoured veg – it's the Northern European way, you know. What follows is a refreshingly niche selection of flavours: scallops on a bed of n’duja and seaweed; water-bath-tender pork with pickled green apple and sauerkraut; barbecued cabbage with rice, macadamias and Sweden’s Västerbotten cheese. Piquant and sour flashes run through everything, so while coal-black sweet potato with crème fraiche or comfortingly rich potato gratin provide respite, this menu predominantly packs a punch. Desserts are conversely sweet and heavy (our wood-smoked peach was a sticky, juicy revelation), while the wine selection favours the Old World and, like the food, keeps things affordable. If word spreads, Rök will become a destination for adventurous foodies.
Oh My. Oh My. I am a humble guy, but I must say, I made a great decision this night. Before going out, I decided to treat my wife and I to dinner at Rok Islington. I had read a lot about this place and knew it was one of the new places in London to visit. The critics loved it, the foodies had all been raving on about it, so I finally plucked up the courage to go. Being spontaneous is what keeps my marriage life happy.
