Updated on Nov 27, 2023 | World of Mouth team

Stockholm’s food scene is flourishing and gaining global recognition. As a playground of the New Nordic food movement, the capital of culinary Sweden offers both tradition, innovation and brilliance in its restaurants. From iconic hot dog stands, market hall food and wine bars to world-renowned starred restaurants, Stockholm offers food for every taste and wallet. This is the city to try traditional Swedish dishes like meatballs with mashed potatoes, a pickled herring feast with a shot of aquavit and vendace roe with potato pancakes. Plus dozens of great bakeries and cafés to enjoy Swedish fika, including a freshly baked cinnamon bun.

Bord

Roslagsgatan 43

Roslagsgatan 43, 113 54 Stockholm, Sweden

Bord is a small, intimate restaurant in Vasastan, Stockholm, known for its relaxed atmosphere and friendly, professional service. The restaurant features an open kitchen, led by Faviken alum Joel Aronsson, and offers a frequently changing à la carte menu, prepared with well-chosen, seasonal ingredients. Some of the standout dishes include wild salmon with cherries and harissa, scallop with chanterelles and peas, and pig's head terrine, all of which are recommended by customers.

Recommended by

Being ambitious and cozy is a winning combination. Bord has taken over the space of the legendary Agricultur, and it has done so with confidence, being a high-quality Scandinavian neighborhood bistro. Most dishes are cooked over an open fire, ingredients are superb and the wine is list full of interesting finds from small producers - cool “attitude meets hygge” -ambiance as a bonus. We tried French white beans (coco de Paimpol) with vongole, line-caught bonito with tomatoes and figs & monkfish Provençale (and much more) – all of which was delicious. Every city should have a place like this.

Recommended by

Miyakodori is a Japanese Izakaya/gastro-pub in Stockholm. They offer a changing menu of yakitori cooked over burning charcoal and small dishes. Super friendly service and a relaxed and homey atmosphere. The owners had to wait a few years before opening, because they had difficulties finding a suitable restaurant space for their concept. Luckily after many Pop Ups Max, John and Lars finally found a space where they could realize their dreams together. Miyakodori on Upplandsgatan is wonderful. The owners have previously worked in Stockholm's best restaurants and Max in Japan.

Other popular dishes include Parmesan gratin scallops, gratin oysters, clam chowder, and a dessert named Milk & Cookies.

Recommended by

Rolfs Hav is perhaps one of the funniest new openings in Stockholm this year. Behind the restaurant are restaurateurs Klas Ljungqvist and Johan Jureskog, who also run Rolfs Kök (which is located just around the corner) and one of the world's best steakhouses, AG. Rolfs Hav(Ocean) is, just as the name indicates, a restaurant focused on fish and shellfish. Small seafood counter with only a few tables for reservations, otherwise it's a first come first serve basis. If you book a table, it is their large seafood platter that you commit to. That means fresh oysters, lobster, langoustine, crab claws and shrimp. This plateau naturally varies according to season and availability. It is plentiful, fresh and wonderfully tasty. There are also hot options that I really like, such as their Parmesan gratin scallops, gratin oysters or clam chowder. If they have the Milk & Cookies on the menu, be sure not to miss. The wine list is not yet that big, but offers some real treats at a nice price.
