Discussion in 'Sweden' started by dronez, Jun 28, 2007.
I just got back from Sweden. Though I'm not a vegetarian, I can assure you it shouldn't be too hard for you to find food to eat. I was in Stockholm and everyone there seems so fit and healthy! I remember reading about Lao Wai (website: laowai.se). It's Chinese food, if that interests you. There was an article on it in a local weekly and it got raves.
Of course, I don't know if you like Chinese and I don't know if you're gonna be in Stockholm. But don't worry, Sweden wasn't hurting for healthy veg/vegan eateries. The one thing you might want to worry about is the price...seems a lot of the stuff/food in that country is expensivvvvvvve.
There are seveal great vegetarians in Stockholm, but most of them have foreign food. Typical swedish food normally contains meat or fish.
A nice swedish dish is Raggmunk which is a potato pancake. It is normally served with lingonberries and bacon but you can of course ask the waitress to skip the bacon. Restaurant Grodan at Grev Ture-gatan has a nice Raggmunk for 112 kr.
I almost forgot a real swedish specialty that I think you can get in a vegetarian version - Kroppkakor. It's a ball of wheat flour and potatoes, filled with onion and spices. Make sure to ask for a veggie version - otherwise you will get pork in it. Try them out at restaurant Prinsen somewhere around Stureplan, unfortunatelyI don't remember the street name.
Good advice, Sven. Are you from Sweden?
i had some swedish meatballs with tofu on my last stockholm trip. i can't rember the swedish name but all waiters speak english in sweden and you'll find vegetarian food on every menu there!
hi friends, I heard the smorgasbord is very famous in sweden? what is it?
