STOCKHOLM STORIES

 

We love our hometown, this is where we live, eat, love and find inspiration.
To give you a better insight into our lovely city we would like to share our favourite spots with you. This time around we would like to share our favourite brunch spots.

In Södermalm, the most eclectic part of Stockholm, you will find Södra Teatern. This place has it all; magical concerts, one of the best clubs in Stockholm, rooftop bar (only during the summer though) and a killer restaurant.

And speaking of food, who doesn´t like to brunch? And who doesn´t like to brunch while listening to great live music? This is exactly what you can do at Södra Teatern. But you should be aware that it´s very busy, so to book a table is a must.

Meat-eater or vegetarian – there is something for all preferences, so go bananas and enjoy! And as Christmas is just around the corner don’t be surprised if you´ll be dining to carols to get you into the Christmas spirit. In December the brunch consists of vegetarian and non vegetarian treats from the Christmas dinner. A Christmas dinner in mini format!

 

Don´t forget to visit the archipelago when you´re in Stockholm, regardless of season, it´s breathtaking. We especially want to recommend you to visit Artipelag which is placed on one of Sweden’s biggest islands called Värmdö. Artipelag is an international venue for art and great food. The surroundings will blow you away.

Make sure you hit the brunch with an empty stomach, try as much as you possibly can and then finish your meal with desserts from heaven. If you´re into fashion or just like to look at beautiful things, then go see the Lars Wallin exhibition. Lars Wallin is a well-known Swedish designer and he is now celebrating 25 years in the fashion industry. This exhibition includes many of his latest dresses and costumes that has never been shown before.

 

Like seafood? Love seafood? Can´t possibly live without seafood? Either way, you have got to try the brunch at Mister French. You´re probably going to think that you died and came to seafood-heaven. This gem is situated by the water close to the beautiful Old Town.

Here you´ll find all types of seafood; oysters, shrimps, crab and lobster of course. And it´s all fresh, fresh, fresh! Maybe there´s someone in your party that´s not a big fan of seafood, if that´s the case, don’t worry. They also have tasty salads and great meat, fresh of the grill. But hey, they´d be missing out on the goodies. Seafood for the people!

 

We love our hometown, this is where we live, eat, love and find inspiration. To give you a better insight into our lovely city we would like to share our favourite spots and stories with you.  

You will not regret having your first meal of the day at Luzette. This classical place is situated at the Central Station, in the heart of Stockholm. It´s a modern brasserie with high ceiling, lots of light, and the feel to it is luxury in a good way.

You will probably have trouble choosing what you want from the menu because everything sounds great, and it is! Make sure you try the scones, they are to die for. And if this doesn’t get you off to a great start, then honestly we don’t know what will. Enjoy!

 

If you feel like going to state of the art exhibitions, then this is the place to visit. Just by the water towards Södermalm in Stockholm you´ll find Fotografiska. For this weekend we would especially like to recommend an exhibition with Helena Schmitz, one of Sweden’s most successful art photographers.

Here is Fotografiska’s description of her current exhibition Transitions. In Transitions, the forces of nature come up against human beings’ futile attempts of to capture the moment and control time – the hopelessness of the idea that we are the masters of creation, and nature’s merciless reply to this destructive utopia.  

Ling Long is a restaurant that belongs to Story Hotel which is one of Stockholm’s busiest hotels. Dinner at Ling Long will be anything but boring; the atmosphere, the food and last but not least the drinks are amazing.

They probably serve the best Asian food you can find in Stockholm, and no the menu is not only filled with chicken and meat! They also have great dishes with fish, and if you´re a vegetarian or vegan then trust me, you´ll go back.

Three dishes you just have to try; the corn, bao with oumph and the papaya salad. Wash this down with some great drinks and don’t look at the drink menu, just ask for the bartenders’ choice, you won´t be disappointed.
