Pernod Ricard AW

I was invited to Pernod Ricard’s after work at the top floor of Nosh and Chow yesterday. They had different theme’s in the rooms. Which I really like because it is easier to get the feel for it.

My favourite is always Jeremy and the champagne. The 2012 Perrier Jouet was very nice. And in a few years it will be even better. I will definitely get some when it’s released!

Another favourite last night was the Monkey Mind, recipe will follow in another post. But the Monkey Cocktail was a perfect match with the food!

And hanging out with this nice crowd last night at the AW was great! Thanks girls😍

For me drinking some Lillet gave me some hope about spring. Their new rose Lillet was very nice!

Me and Terese closed the place in the After Ski bar!

Saravanaa Bhavan

The Indian chain Saravanaa Bhavan has finally reached Sweden with its vegetarian food. It is the worlds biggest Indian vegetarian chain, and you can find them in a lot of country’s. The chain was founded 1981 in Chennai by Mr Rajagopal.

He was born as a low caste in a remote province, and his life is like a Cinderella story. He moved to Chennai as a teenager and started little grocery shops. He found out that there was a demand for restaurants, so he started some. Which at first didn’t go all well, but when it took of it was like a success story! He is famous for that he treats his employees well and they worship him, he has built temples in the village where he was born. One “small detail” is that he is a convicted murder, who was released on bail after a year in prison. He is not allowed to leave the country, but except that he is still living as nothing happened. And who knows what happened..

The food at the restaurants comes from different parts of Southern India. So you find both some spicy and non spicy food.

For example, you can get some golden brown yummy dosas (it’s like a wafer thin pancake) , idlis, Vada or a full meal Thali and many more delicacies.

You have the option of different Chutney’s, Currie’s and I well can just keep on going.. You should just go there, and try it out. Just make sure you order a dosa..

I had some delicious food; Mini masala dosa, Cocos chutney, Medhu Vada and some other things.

R Asia

This is a great Chinese restaurant for authentic Chinese food, it is located in Solna, Stockholm.

You have two options at the restaurant, go there for a buffet.

Or book a table in one of the two private rooms, and have a private party with real Chinese food. They even have a karaoke here! So it’s just like being in China. (I love karaoke 😉

We had Feiteng fish, Guobao pork, pork belly with chilli oil and Fish Fragrant Aubergine. The aubergine doesn’t have any fish in it.It is just prepared the way you do with the fish.

Feiteng Waterboiled Fish, I think that everyone loves this dish! Just make sure you don’t eat the Sichuan corns!

I have a friend that ate a whole fish alone once;) Because I wanted some other food.. 😂

For the buffet, I have no idea how it is. I rather go for all the food I’m used too!

Shanti

Real Indian food in Stockholm?!?

Yes, Shanti has some locations. But my favourite is Shanti Classic. The chef is great, and so is the food. When you are eating Indian food, then you should order some different dishes to share. (According to the Indian way, and mine;)

There is some musts at this restaurant. The Palak Paneer is made by the chefs and it is so good! It is a indian cheese in sauce. Served with veggies and rice.

And of course some tandoori chicken or a Korma. And… Well the list is long, just order a bunch of food!

And have a beer with it.

Enjoy!

Sauces and rice. The key to the Indian food.

Restaurant China

Is a real chinese restaurant in Stockholm. After 7 years in China, I like to get some good chinese food every now and then. And I’m really happy when I don’t have to cook it myself.

At China they even have a Beijing duck owen, I haven’t tried it jet, but everyone that has say’s that it is great. But what I do know is that they have a superb false Beijing duck. What is that you might think, it is shredded pork with spring onions and bean sauce. It reminds you of Beijing duck, and the same sauce is used. And you eat it with bread. The story goes that a grand father couldn’t afford to cook Beijing duck for his son, so he made it with pork instead. And when the grandson grew up to become a chef he was served the real stuff and then got the story behind it from his grand father.

They serve food from different parts of China, and it’s all really good!

I can totally recommend this place!

Xochimex Cantina

A nice cantina close to our hotel by Miami Airport. And it’s a tradition going here for some really good Mexican food our last night in Florida. After my shopping;)

They make the bread on site for each order, and I just love watching them while they are doing it!

So they have all sorts of different food there. But I love their Quesadilla with chicken, guacamole, chipotle etc..

And you gotta have a Jarritos to drink;)
