When we were invited to the Michelin event we decided to make a full Stockholm weekend out of it. Stockholm is an amazing food destination! There are so many great food spots to visit, and it was extremely hard to choose just a few to fit into our short foodcation. We were lucky to get to stay at our good friends Charlotte & Tom's place, and they also joined us for some of the dining experiences. Thank you, guys!
We'll share the highlights from our trip here, but check back later for another blogpost dedicated to our favorite coffee spots and one featuring the entire meal from Restaurang Yolo. Coming up!
The Flying Elk
The Flying Elk is the sister restaurant of two-Michelin-star restaurant Frantzén. It is a gastropub that serves rustic food. Check out their "frunch" on Saturdays and their special burger on Sundays.
We found this great breakfast spot, not to speak of amazing pastry spot, thanks to our friend enfoodie. Wienercaféet is a French style café with marble and gold decorations and pastries in all imaginable and unimaginable shapes and forms.
To our knowledge Råkultur serves the best sushi in Stockholm, and certainly the best sushi we ever had. Most of the menu items include ingredient combinations we haven't seen any other place. It is highly recommended to have a seat at the bar counter in front of the kitchen, so you can watch the chefs work their magic.
Charlotte & Tom took us to the monthly event "Out of Office" at the historical and majestical saloon Berns. Somewhat spontaneously we decided to drop by Berns Asiatiska for a quick nibble before our meal at Oaxen later. After all, Stockholm's playboy number one, Joachim, had recommended their dim sums as well.
Oaxen Krog & Slip is actually two restaurants and should be very happy with the new nordic Michelin Guide. The now two-Michelin star Oaxen Krog only serves a tasting menu, so we decided to keep it more casual and check out the Bib Gourmand spot Oaxen Slip in stead. We did not regret that decision! Little did we know that we would taste the best tartar we ever had, and end up eating a pig's head!
Anders had planned most visits to the last detail, but managed to miss that Adam & Albins matstudio did not serve lunch in the weekend. Alas! It will have to be for our next visit. Thus, we ended up at another very good alternative; Taverna Brillo. A place known for their great baking skills.
We get a lot of our restaurant tips from the people we follow on Instagram, and Restaurang Yolo is certainly no exception. It's doubtful we would ever have come across this place by chance, as it's located a good 30 minutes outside the city. Although it is extremely difficult to choose, Yolo is our favorite restaurant from the trip, simply because of the most rememberable flavors. We'll be making a dedicated blogpost for this place to be posted later, with all the dishes. Here's a teaser...
So, you don't think we have time for anything but food?
Well, that is wrong! We definitely find time to enjoy the time in between restaurant and café visits. One of the things we like to do is to walk in beautiful areas and look at pretty things. Like this view of the city from Södermalm.
