We came, we saw, we ate all the cinnamon buns.
Here are some memorable moments, spots and eats from around town…
Kicking off with smoked reindeer with horseradish and whitefish roe on black rye toast, followed by a generous plate of bona fide Swedish meatballs at Tradition. It’s a cosy but contemporary restaurant in the historic centre.
Pulling apart the sticky, cardamom-scented kanelbullar (cinnamon buns) in the old school tea room at Vete-Katten – it’s been going strong since 1928 – dipped in endless cups of coffee.
Feeling incredibly small next to the enormous real-life Viking ship at the fascinating Vasa Museum.
Wishing we could take home all the piles of fresh peak-season kanterelle – chanterelle mushrooms – at the Östermalms Saluhall covered market, built in 1888. It’s a good spot to pick up locally made edible souvenirs, like lingonberry jam.
Every course of the degustation at Ekstedt, where all their dishes are cooked using the power of fire in the wood fired oven and open pit – there’s not a lick of gas or an electric oven in the kitchen.
