Fairy Lights & Swedish Meatballs at Lisa’s

Hi everyone! Now that the party season is on we also got together with friends to celebrate Christmas before heading home for the holidays. Usually, we have an annual ‘Ugly Jumper party’, but this year we decided to keep it a more low key and go for a Swedish dinner instead.

Lisa’s Portobello is fresh, very current and smart. All of the fairy lights sparkling everywhere made it very festive in an elegant way.

The set menu was very Scandinavian and exactly what we had in mind; toast Skagen, Swedish meatballs and cured salmon.

The food is simple, fresh and delicious and everything is made from scratch.

Lisa’s Portobello has live beats every Thursday, Friday and Saturday – we really enjoyed the music.

Thank you to everyone who came, it was so lovely to see you and spend the evening together. Have a Happy Christmas ❤️

    Nam! Näyttää ihan superhyvältä!
    Ja hauska kuulla että Lontoossakin on noita Skandinaavisia rafloja 😀

      Joo oli tosi herkullista ruokaa ja tosi kiva paikka kaikinpuolin. Lontoossa on aika monta Scandi paikkaa, onneksi.
