When it comes to Swedish food a certain mega furniture store, well known to most, has done a decent job highlighting the top foods from Sweden. However, while this store might be the cheapest and most convenient way to taste your way through Swedish food, when in Stockholm there is an abundance of local restaurants serving up fresher and more authentic dishes, that of course also come with a more authentic price tag; yet worth the splurge. Although the Swedish cuisine extends far beyond this list, as we only had one day in Stockholm, we sampled only a few items.
Stockholm is a very walkable city; the old and new part of town are only a bridge apart, while ferries bring you to museums and parks a little further away. As the weather was incredibly nice for the time of year, we decided to spend the day walking from the new part of town to the Old Town, wrapping up the day in Slussen, just south of the Old Town.
