This past week, I had the pleasure of dining at an amazing steakhouse, called Vassa Eggen. I’d heard nothing but good things about this restaurant so I was very excited to see what it’s all about.
Vassa Eggen is definitely a popular spot amoungst the locals for both dining and afterwork drinks. It is on the pricier side, like most restaurants by Stureplan. But once you dine here, I think you’d agree with me in saying it’s worth every crown.
Dim lighting, upbeat music and a lively atmosphere are what make up the ambiance at Vassa Eggen. The restaurant has a very cool vibe to it that you feel as soon as you pass through the front doors. It’s cozy yet modern, hip and full of energy – the perfect atmosphere for a dinner with friends, family or colleagues. The restaurant is decorated with beautiful paintings by Christian Saldert, who uses oil painting and screen printing techniques to recreate interesting motifs found on the internet. The bar area was buzzing with hip Stockholmers and businessmen alike.
One of the things I admired most about our experience at Vassa Eggen was the excellent service. This is something I feel is hard to come by in Stockholm. All of the staff were very knowledgeable about the menu, and were eager to offer their personal recommendations. Moreover, they were excellent with drink pairings, and our server in particular recommended some delicious foods and wines that created a lovely experience for us.
The food was absolutely amazing with unique and fresh flavours. If you’re the type of person who eats with their eyes first, you won’t be disappointed with the beautiful dishes served here.
To start, I ordered a fresh and delicious shrimp salad, called Gambas. For my main, I ordered the Grilled Calamares with a fresh tomato, red onion and feta salad recommended by our server. The salad was delicious and paired beautifully with the calamari, which were cooked to perfection. My boyfriend ordered the Spanish Prawns to start and the BBQ Beef Brisket for his entrée. He was extremely pleased. The beef was very tender and flavourful and the prawns were delectable. Now you’d think by this point, we’d be too full for dessert. But we couldn’t resist sharing the crème brûlée, which was the cherry on top of a delicious meal.
Overall, we had a fantastic experience at Vassa Eggen. To me, this restaurant ticks all the boxes: excellent food, great service, lively atmosphere and all in a very central location. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a dinner with loved ones, friends and colleagues, or even just for drinks after work. I can tell you one thing: you can count on me returning to Vassa Eggen very soon.
