KöD London is a Danish steak house with already well-established sites in the likes of Copenhagen, Oslo and Stavanger, serving up meat-focused dishes cooked on the grill in east London's Devonshire Square.
Located in a gorgeous period building, the decor nods to authentic details such as exposed brick walls and panelled ceilings, updated with Scandi-stye industrial touches, minimalist furniture and a hygge-worthy atmosphere. The restaurant has two floors, both with 60 covers, and a mix of high tables, cosy round tables and an open bar.
The menu's concept is all about serving up some of the finest steaks from around the world, accompanied by complementary small plates and side dishes. To start, Italian influences come through in appetisers such as homemade tortellini with langoustine, and fresh burrata with rosemary tomato. Or, jump straight into the meat-fest with options like thinly-sliced prime British beef carpaccio with Old Winchester cheese or steak tartare from prime British beef with mustard, horseradish and shallots.
Moving on to mains and the steak section outlines that every piece of meat is brushed with rosemary and garlic butter, seasoned with sea salt and fresh herbs, and served on carrot purée. Options are then broken down into fillet steak, ribeye, striploin and wagyu striploin, offering cuts from Japan, England, Scotland and the USA. You can then choose a sauce - bearnaise, Madagascar pepper or port glaze - to complement your meal.
There's a range of delicious-sounding sides to choose from too, including crispy fries with truffle and fresh tarragon, Tuscan kale seared in butter and garlic, and fried corn tossed with a homemade spice mix. If you can save room for pudding we suggest you do and make the most of the chocolate brownie with raspberry mousse, blackberry compote and crystallised white chocolate, or the fried apple pie with charred white chocolate and sorrel.
