Planning your vacation to Stockholm? We often get the question “where should I go for a Swedish lunch?”, and there are so many answers to that question. Below we rank three of our favourites in the city.
A cosy environment and classic dishes on Restaurant Tradition on Österlånggatan 1. This restaurant is pretty perfectly located in Gamla stan (the Old Town), perfect if you want to explore the oldest neighborhood in the city and have a Swedish lunch. On the menu you’ll find Swedish classics such as Beef Rydberg, Toast Skagen and of course the oh-so-Swedish Meatballs. Book your table and see the menu at Tradition’s website.
Tennstopet, with 150 years of history, located on Dalagatan 50. Tennstopet is a storied restaurant with heritages from the end of 1800s, in here you’ll get the feeling that time literally have stopped. They often have theme weeks and serve things that perhaps have fallen out of the regular Swedish menus nowadays, like wild boars. Perhaps not the restaurant for vegetarians… See what they are focusing on during your stay on their website.
Pelikan is loved by both locals and visitors of the city, located on Blekingegatan 40. For 110 years, restaurant Pelikan have been serving people food in the big hall that makes the restaurants. The menu consists of classic Swedish dishes: meatballs, herring, rhubarb pie and egg-anchovy salad to mention a few. Pelikan is a bit expensive but very well worth it if you want to have lunch in a unique setting. Read more about Pelikan on the restaurant’s website.
