Choco Mania, Stockholm’s Sweetest and Dreamiest Fika

0

Good day amigos, I hope it’s all going great during these days of unbelievable tropical weather (haha). Today I am going to tell you -like you already don’t know- about the sweetest and dreamiest fika experience in our beloved Stockholm: Choco Mania café, located in the Mall of Scandinavia. I found out about this café a few months ago when my friend and terrific fashion blogger Sabine enthusiastically told me about her visit. She knows that I am crazy about food and so she shared her “surreal” experience, using her own words. Of course I had seen photos of the many…

Österlånggatan 17, one of the best restaurants in Stockholm’s Old Town

0

When picking a new restaurant to review I generally go for the ones that I believe will be a great experience to share with you all, where food is treated with respect and where dining has a true meaning. Restaurant Österlånggatan 17 is certainly one of those places where you always want to come back, and they certainly are serving some of the best foods in Gamla Stan (Stockholm’s Old Town). Part of the Bockholmengruppen (one of Stockholm’s best restaurant corporations) the success of an anticipated satisfactory experience was sort of a given. My first visit was for their Sunday lunch. When…

Besta Semla in Stockholm, 2017 tour

0

Good day my beloved foodies out there. I’m sure you are wondering where to get THE best semla in Stockholm during this season. Well, being a devoted food blogger and avid glutton, I embarked upon a tour to a few of the best bakeries and cafés in town to find out for myself. First things first, what is a semla? It is probably the most beloved and awaited pastry in Sweden, and it consists of a cardamom flavored bun, sugary almond filling and topped off with whipped cream. It does sound simple but trust me -not that you don’t know…

A cool and delicious Staycation at Hotel with

0

I remember it was last year when I was eating for the first time at Urban Deli Sveavägen when I suddenly turned around and read the hotel sign. Surprised and excited for the vibrancy of it and for the reputation of UD I thought it would be cool to have a “Staycation”. To me, traveling and hospitality are associated with food. In fact, food is my main destination. That’s how I decide on which new city to visit. After a few busy months of work and finally having a weekend off, this oportunity presented itself as a perfect scape to…

Systrarna Andersson, Café & Hotspot, one of Stockholm’s hidden gems

2

Good evening fellow foodies, hope you are all doing great! In today’s review I will tell you about one of the best cafés I have ever visited: Systrarna Andersson, Café & Hotspot. Located in Kungsholmen, it was listed by VisitStockholm as one of the city’s most preserved hidden gems. I probably fika even more than the Swedes themselves, so you can understand my enthusiasm when I finally payed them a visit. It was a couple of weeks ago on a crisp Sunday and my body was craving for brunch treats, good coffee, Scandi vibes and coziness. As soon as I come…

Robin Delselius Bageri, a new favorite in Stockholm’s fika scene

0

Good evening friends! This week I visited the newly opened Robin Delselius Bageri (bakery in Swedish), located in Södermalm. Based on comments I heard and read, and as soon as I set foot on it I immediately declared it a favorite in our beloved Stockholm’s growing and ever-evolving fika scene. One of the best fikas I’ve had this year. Big words, right? Well, join me on this post and I’ll tell you all about it. I stated on my first Instagram post that the bakery’s decoration felt to me somehow as a mix of an old and traditional bakery and…

Failed fika excursion to Kafé Esaias

0

Good afternoon my friends. Just a couple of hours ago I was in Kafé Esaias having a fika that turned out to be a complete fail. On a day off after many many weeks of hard work I decided to visit this place after having read so many positive comments about it. Sadly, it was the complete opposite of what I was expecting. Previous to my visit, I read on their Facebook page, that hasn’t been updated since September the 20th, that new owners were taking over. First semi negative vibes hit me as reading this, since I have seen…

Lunch at Portal Restaurant

0

Good morning my fellow foodies out there. I have been absent from this blog for quite a long time because of work, so to celebrate my comeback I decided to treat myself at one of the hottest spots in Stockholm’s food scene nowadays. I have had lunch at Portal Restaurant 2 times in the past 2 weeks, although I would love to eat there every single day. It is by far and indisputably one of the best restaurants I have tried this year. Take into consideration that I have traveled to foodie cities as Copenhagen, Berlin, Malmö and Helsinki, to name…

Vegan dinner at Matapoteket

1

Good morning my friends. Sunday morning is always a good time to embrace new inspirations, that’s why I decided myself to try something completely new for me: raw and vegan food. So I partnered up with Jonna from “Tastesthlm” to have dinner at Matapoteket in Söder. To be honest, I have never been too drawn to the idea of raw nor vegan food. Strange on me because I like to try everything, but getting out of my comfort zone -in this case is the zone where I know the food is gonna be delicious- was not such a tempting idea. Food…

A foodie in Hammarby Sjöstad

0

Good evening my friends, I hope you are all doing great! It’s been a hell of a vacation, a bit away from the Stockholm blogosphere and the city itself, but now I am back in full foodie mode. So I decided to make a small list of some of my favorite places on my beautiful neighborhood Hammarby Sjöstad. Breakfast, lunch, fika and dinner; Hammarby Sjöstad has it all. On top of that, it is actually one of the most beautiful areas in Stockholm and literally the best place I have ever lived at. I am so lucky to have “landed”…

Summer fika in Stockholm, from an ecological and sustainable approach

0

Good evening my dear Stockholmers. How did the summer treat you? I gotta say that for me it was very nice -despite the crazy weather- because I got to discover many great eateries where I could sit outside and enjoy the occasional sun. In this spirit, I was very psyched to know that Restaurant Woodstockholm took over the kiosk at the Mosebacke square. Summer fika at its best! I have been wanting to visit Woodstockholm ever since I discovered it existed. I’m planning on going soon, so I thought I could treat myself to their ecological and sustainable food approach. As…

Summer lunch at Cafe Blå Lotus in Söder

0

Good evening my friends, I hope everything is going fantastic in your lives. I want to share with you one of my latest foodie adventures in Stockholm, a delicious and healthy meal at Café Blå Lotus, trying to soak up all the summer vibes that is slowly fading away. Rewind a year and a half and I find myself on a not-so-warm winter night wandering around Söder, completely alone and clueless of where to go for a good meal. I walked down this cute and famous boulevard-type street of Södermalm (Katarina Bangata street) in search of a meal that will…
