A friend did his Erasmus in Stockholm and so he put together a list of mus try food and restaurants to explore when in Stockholm. We had a longer list, but here what we tried out.
These Swedish Cinnamon Rolls are absolutely perfect. They melt in your mouth & with coffee or tea makes your FIKA break even more perfect.
Where did we stop for FIKA?
Cafe Fatoljen in Sodermalm (Insta)
Cafe Pascal close to Odenplan (Insta)
Flickorna Helin Skanska Gruvan in Skanska (Insta)
Small clarification here: What is FIKA?
Fika is often translated as "a coffee and cake break", which is kind of correct, but really it is much more than that.
Fika is a concept, a state of mind, an attitude and an important part of Swedish culture. Many Swedes consider that it is almost essential to make time for fika every day. It means making time for friends and colleagues to share a cup of coffee (or tea) and a little something to eat
Is widely thought of as Sweden's national dish. They are served traditionally, with potato puree, sweetened lingonberries and pressed âcucumber.
We tried them at Meatballs for the people which is highly rated & you will most likely have to queue a bit. There you can try meatballs out of several types of meat.
3. MAX Fast Food
I will start by saying I am not a fan of fast food, but everyone said we have to try the Swedish Fast Food, Max and we did. To me it just like any other fast food, so unless you love fast food (and for your health I hope you don't) I would not bother trying.
Of course, there are much more options, but keeping it on a budget while still exploring the local food, this would for sure get you a view of Stockholm's bests.
