Tjena mina kompisar, I hope the weekend has treated you better than it has treated me, haha.
I have been wanting to visit “Barobao” for so long, of which I had heard many great things of, but you know how Stockholm is nowadays, a true foodie paradise.
So this past Friday I decided to just go there and let them surprise me. And let me just say that it was one of the greatest surprises and most delicious flavors I have had in a while.
I arrived a bit past noon and the place was empty. If you ask me why I truly don’t know what to say. I think everyone should be eating there right now. I’m always honest about my food thoughts or opinions, not that I feel entitled to judge other chef’s works, but I do know “a bit” more than your typical foodie friend. So when I say a restaurant is really good, it’s because I genuinely think so. The food that I ate was so tasty…
A mix of intense and complex flavors playing wildly and complementing each other, UMAMI as the main distinctive -and differentiating- element of the meal. Food heaven…
Despite that for lunch they only offer a 4-item menu, including 2 baos (100 kr each): one with meat and one vegetarian (both served with sticky rice and a side salad); and 2 rice bowls (120 kr each): one with meat and one vegetarian also (both served with sticky rice, egg. kimchi, ssäm dressing, chili pickled cucumber, spring onions and a side salad); the food speaks for itself and its an assurance of a great dining experience in my opinion.
The restaurant offers their full menu for dinner, including a wider variety of baos, some medium-sized chicken and fish dishes and an egg dish that seems so tempting that I’m wishing to be eating it right now as I write this for you guys. You should know, eggs are my favorite ingredient in the entire universe, and a runny slightly warmed egg yolk is the most satisfying and delicious flavor ever known to mankind, for real!
The staff is very friendly and caring, the light-wooden décor is cool and cozy and gives the dining room this extra illuminated setting that makes me happy in a strange way (I can explain it, I’m still suffering because of the dark winter months, haha).
Hopefully I can come back really soon to explore the menu and delight myself with their amazing foods. Tack så mycket my friends, keep it up!
