Penny & Bill

This bar/restaurant is situated at Östermalm in Stockholm. The place is dark and cozy, and very inviting!

The gang working there is very service minded. I haven’t eaten there, but if the food is as good as their fabulous drinks. Then it’s great;)

We had several different drinks, and all were good. I just love hanging out in a nice bar!

L’Avventura

If you want a cozy restaurant this is the place. L’Avventura is located in an old cinema from the 1920s. The wall paintings and deco is all original by Nils Asplund, Jöns Thulin and Augusto Conte. The food is Italian, and if you go there you gotta get the fried truffle risotto bowls, and the stracciatella is amazing! And…. the truffle pasta, and…. we’ll go there and try it for yourself!

Trying out some really nice vodka drinks yesterday by Virtuous Vodka at restaurant Tong in Stockholm.  The drinks were fabolous, and Tong is magical. I feel like I’m back home in Shanghai at that restaurant. So we tried all the different flavours of the vodka. And there are six; original, raspberry, ginger, Chili, vanilla and bitter lemon. The big bonus here is that everything is ecological! My favourite is the ginger vodka. I always mix Gingertini’s with it.
