Stockholm – the city of bright lights and people who know how to survive in the North. They have their own peculiarities and unusual dishes, as well as the ability to bring the new feel to the old products.
Try the well-known dishes in new forms. We are all accustomed to the sandwich when there are two slices of bread with a filling in the middle, but the Scandinavian variant misses one of them. The best open sandwiches are made with shrimps and are called räksmörgås or räkmacka. Usually, it is topped with boiled eggs, lettuce, tomato, cucumber, and creamy sauce romså. This variant has inspired a saying which means ‘get a free ride’. The dish can be ordered at The Hairy Pig Deli which serves traditional Scandinavian cuisine.
Eat a Northern sun. Another dish you should try is a pea soup. It is yellow, sunny, and tasty. The soup is eaten every Thursday – the tradition upheld by the Armed Forces. If you want to have a plate of it, go to a restaurant with a traditional menu on a Thursday and you will see it on the menu. Visit Gästabud where it is perfectly cooked.
