Just came back a family trip to Sweden, Estonia, Russia, Finland, Germany, Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium and France! Thanks to Chowhound and Trip Advisor recommendations, we had a culinary blast!
Our first stop was Stockholm and everything’s so expensive there. On average, a meal for the 4 of us (shared appetizers, 4 mains, without drinks) was more than 1000 SEK (150 CAD)!
The first meal we had in Stockholm was dinner at Sturehof!
Sturehof is Stockholm’s most classic brasserie and has been around for more than a century! We arrived at Sturehof around 8pm on a Friday night and the place was packed with trendy Stockholmers. There was an hour wait for a seat on the terrace (facing the Stureplan square) so we decided to wait for a table in the dining room.
Swedish cuisine is famous for herring and Sturehof is famous for its fish and seafood.
5 sorts of herring (herb and garlic, pickled, mustard, Sturehof, Norrona matjes) with Swedish cheese… This is the classic Swedish dish but I didn’t really like it because the herring is extremely salty. I think the cheese is there to balance the saltiness but I don’t eat cheese!
My dad had the grilled char (on the bone) with beetroots and horseraddish creme. Unfortunately, I didn’t take a picture because it’s rare for a Western restaurant to serve a whole fish!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!!
