Food from Eritrea at today’s lunch with Food Tours. At Rådhusets tube station in Stockholm. This was a totally new place for me.

We had a big tray of different food to share.

You eat the food with a traditional Ethiopian / Eritrean bread called Teff Injera, and they have a gluten free version too. The bread is like a sponge pancake, and you scoop up the food with it. It’s traditionally baked with the grain teff.

We had Beb´Ainetu with different kinds off food like hamli (sautéd greens), Timtimo (red lentils), potatoes and greens with some sauce, and lot’s of other things.

With that we had Mestej, (Mes or Tej) And it is a is a mead or honey wine made out of fermented honey, and it is thought to be the oldest form of alcohol known.

In Ethiopia can you find Tej houses to drink it, but most people make their own Tej. In ancient times MesTej was only served to kings and queens.

You normally drink it out of a berele, which looks like a vase. And if your at a Ethiopian restaurant, just ask for some Tej Bet. Then you get the restaurants House Tej. And the taste always depends on what honey that is used to make it;)

Café Blå Lotus (Cafe Blue Lotus)

It’s situated at Södermalm in Stockholm. The place looks very Asian with a lot of furniture from India, buddhas etc.. It’s has a very relaxed vibe, and is normally packed in the weekends.

They have salads, sandwiches and good cakes! I really like their carrot cake! A nice touch is that they ask you to not use your computer, and everyone is speaking with their company at the cafe! Just like it should be!

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;)

Ohana J’s in Cocoa Beach

Real american feast at Ohana J’s in Cocoa Beach, Florida. The place has good service, is clean and are serving good sized portions of American food. The Quesadillas are really good!! I can totally recommend this place if you are up for this type of food. The only downer was their cocktails. They were not nice.

Quesadilla, coconut shrimps, and potato skins. We had them as a starter.

Ohana means family in Hawaiian. And the place is family owned by the Osgood family.
