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!

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.

First Flight

This is where Pan Am had their first office, and where the first ticket were bought for the first flight with Pan Am. A trip between Key West and Havana, Cuba the 28th of October 1928.

The restaurant is serving good American crossover food in a very nice lush courtyard. (You can also sit indoors)

A big plus is that the restaurant isn’t crazy crowded like many other places at Duval Street.

The food, we had a Steak Quesadilla, hamburger and Chicken Tenders. And it was all nice and tasty. And it was not over priced.

The staff is very helpful and observant! A big applaud to them!

And if you like beer, they are having their own micro brewery on site. They have both IPA and Ale.

I had their famous Key West Margarita with sauza tequila, Key lime liqueur, triple sec and lime juice. Loved it!

I recommend you to book a table! But if you are early then it’s probably not a problem!

Rosetta Bakery

This is an awesome Italian bakery with several locations in Miami.

The pastry is made the real way, and tastes totally divine. Real berries, good custard, and yes I have to say that I’m hooked. And working for a food magazine that is not often it happens. Rosetta will be a place I always will visit when I’m in Miami.

They also serve pizza slices, and focaccia. Yesterday my daughter and I had some focaccia. And they were really good, it was just the perfect salty taste! I probably go back there today for lunch with some friends.

You find their locations here;

Nytorget 6

I was the guide at a Food Tour at Södermalm in Stockholm today.

Great fun! I had a group from Norway, and I think I did pretty well even if it was my first tour I talked on all stops nearly. My colleague Gunilla did 2 of the stops.

One of the stops were at restaurant Nytorget 6. Its an international restaurant in the trendy part of Södermalm called SoFo(South of Folkungagatan) and it has a nice soft vibe. The food is Scandinavian with an Southern European touch. Today they had a nice platter with tuna, pork and lamb. And a cocktail, and Nytorget has some really good cocktails.

This it’s a perfect place to hang out at. But If you wanna eat, reserve a table! It’s normally pretty full in there during the evening. They are open from 7.30 during weekdays. And they serve some of Stockholm’s best breakfasts!

Nytorget 6 is both the name of the restaurant, and the address. Pretty clever I have to say!
