On Blekingegatan in Södermalm, you’ll find the classic Stockholm restaurant Pelikan. Here, people have been eating and drinking since the house was built in 1904. Back then, the restaurant was the city’s last outpost. On Blekingegatan, the farmers stopped to eat and get drunk after selling their products in town.

Even today, Pelikan is one of the few restaurants where aquavit is served with the food, all year round. And the food is aquavit friendly. The menu includes ‘Gubbröra’ (anchovy hash), ‘S.O.S’ (butter, cheese, and herring), as well as main courses such as meatballs with cream sauce, boiled knuckle of pork and mashed Swedes, reindeer, potato dumplings, and fried salted bacon. If you’re really hungry and thirsty, you can order a large ‘Grosshandlarmiddag’ (Wholesaler’s Dinner), prepared according to historical recipes.

There’s also a small dining room and a modern bar. The bar is also an art gallery where young, often unestablished, artists are displayed.

At Pelikan, a mixed Södermalm audience of all generations hangs out to eat good food, drink aquavit and locally produced craft beer, and socialize together in a historic restaurant environment.

Welcome to Pelikan!
