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!
The perfect dish when you are lazy. And you can use halloumi instead of sausage! Fry it a bit before you add it to the sauce!
In Sweden we use a bigger sausage called falukorv. The sausage is made of a grated mixture of smoked pork and beef or veal with potato starch flour, onion, salt and some mild spices. It is a cooked sausage, so you can eat it cold. I normally fry it, or put it into the oven with some cheese.
But back to Sausage Stroganoff.
400-500 gram sausage, preferably Falukorv into slices.
2 finely chopped yellow onions
2 dl cream
1 dl water
1-1,5 Table spoon of tomato purée
1 table spoon Soy sauce, chinese
And some oil for cooking
What to do;
1,Fry the sausage in the oil in a saucepan for about 5 minutes. Add the onion and fry for another minute.
2, Add cream, water, tomato puree and Chinese soy sauce. Cook for about 10 minutes. You can add some wheat flour to make the sauce thicker.
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!
Operakällaren is a very nice old classic restaurant that first opened up in 1787 in the basement of the old Opera house in Stockholm. Since then it has been torn down and a new house was built in the beginning of 19th century. It has always been a top restaurant , and yesterday I was invited to a Christmas lunch there with Huawei.
The dessert table was amazing! And I just love desserts so much!
We were in a private room situated upstairs. And I had actually never been in there!
I love the small sausages, they are called prinskorvar. Which literally means prince sausages 🤣
We eat a lot of salmon and herring at all big holidays in Sweden.
And then we have the “lutfisk” Stock fish where the dry fish has been put into lye, and then it all gets soaked in lye. And then it will get boiled. The whole procedure takes more than two weeks!
Tastes good? According to me, no. According to my colleague Tove Yes.
In Sweden we have been eating this for more than 500 years! And king Gustav the 3rd ate the fish during the whole spring apparently!
Well I stick to the rest of the food! I prefer that;)
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!
