‘Swedish culinary is about a mix between salty and sweet!’
It was a cold afternoon when I took a short stroll in the city with my friend Linda when we decided to have lunch together at this legendary Swedish restaurant, Kåges Hörna. It is so convenient that it is located inside the food market ‘Saluhallen’ in the Kungsportsplatsen area. It is an extremely strategic place when you want to shop while enjoying the city. I love this area so much especially when I am in the mood for shopping. Not only food
I have never tried this restaurant before, and Linda convinced me that this restaurant serves only authentic Swedish home-cooked-style meals. Of course, I was excited to try it, because most of the time, the Swedish food I have tried was either in IKEA or in the school cafeteria.
I ordered the dish of the day which was stuffed pork with plum, served with potatoes and apple sauce. I was like ‘WHAAAA?’ – in a good, surprised way. Linda explained that it is very Swedish to mix between salty and sweet in one dish. And I can assure you, dear readers, she tells the truth. I have seen people eating bread, cheese, and strawberry jam on top. Meatballs with brown gravy and lingonberry jam. To some people, this food culture might be a little strange, but to me, it was love at first bite.
The pork-plum thingy was served in a rather fast pace. It makes sense that they have this fast system as it is a bar type of restaurant where you sit down on a high stool facing the sellers where they have
I loved this place so much that I went for a second time. AND THIRD! The second time I went with my friend Phryne. We had fish patties with potatoes. Again, it was really good! The staff
EXTRA! It is actually very cheap for this type of lunch. Only 78 SEK including water and salad!
Pro tip: Not every staff speaks English, but they do understand! – and they are very very friendly! 🙂
