Stockholm, the capital of Sweden, is a perfect place to visit over the weekend. Especially so if you are into great food and want to try something new. Book a room at a lovely boutique hotel and head north for a couple of days of luxurious eating.
But do not confine yourself to eating only. Stockholm is a lovely city with plenty of interesting architecture, modern galleries and museums. Most places to visit are located in a small area in the middle of the city, so you can easily walk from sight to sight. The walking will also enable you to eat more, so do pack your trainers.
Although it is a shame to miss the hotel breakfast, we would still recommend that you have breakfast at one of the most famous cafés in Sweden – Pom och Flora. The café opens already at 7am, and serves breakfast all day. The bowls and the porridge are beautiful as well as extremely delicious.
For a perfect brunch, head to Miss Clara. Here you’ll find everything from eggs Benedict to korean chicken on the à la carte menu. Top it off with american pancakes, and you are sure to have energy enough for a whole day of sightseeing.
Nytorget 6 has a great selection of smaller dishes, perfect for ordering a few and share. And you can of course have Swedish meatballs if you prefer that.
If you are interested in traditional Swedish food, you should visit Pelikan. The premises have housed restaurants for more than 100 years, and the food comes in large servings, is delicious and well cooked.
Vina is a wine bar with lovely short menu. The food is selected to match the wines available, and ranges from cold cuts to the best Steak Tartare found in Stockholm.
As Stockholm is situated almost on the water, you should really try some seafood while visiting. The best ones are found at Sturehof, where the menu is long and the dishes are perfectly composed and prepared. Lobster, oysters, shrimp or the famous seafood platter? The choice is yours.
