The Swedish cuisine mainly consists of meat and fish, so we were relieved to find a vegetarian restaurant in Stockholm. Hermans is a buffet restaurant for lovers of healthy vegetarian and vegan food. The salad bar offers more than fifteen delicious and colourful salads, from plain lettuce to veggie dishes, with different kinds of vegetables. All fresh and homemade. Some of the ingredients are organic. Ask the staff for gluten and lactose free options. Read more »
Where to find delicious, pure, organic, local food and sustainable fish in Stockholm? Pure! Food & Travel was invited to the Stockholm Gastronomic Week where we joined the official inauguration of Bocuse d’Or Europe 2014.
We travelled by boat to the Island of Fjäderholmarna, the first stop in the Stockholm archipelago, which consists of 30,000 islands. Also on the program was a foodie tour and visits to some delicious restaurants to explore the famous Nordic cuisine.
All Scandic hotels offer pure and natural ingredients in their restaurants. In the restaurant Teaterbrasseriet and the Bistro not all the food is organic, what they offer depends on the wholesale purchase price and the differing sustainability standards. Fish and seafood is sustainable, jumbo prawns are banned in the restaurants because the farming methods destroy the ecosystem. They serve crayfish instead. Coffee is fair trade. Gluten free bread and lactose free milk are available. Read more »
Södermalm is the hippest of the hip neighbourhoods in Stockholm, which makes it the ideal place to start the concept of Meatballs. Meatballs gives a twist to the classical Swedish dish. I enjoyed a tasting of different meatballs, including the vegetarian falafel, which, surprisingly, I liked the least. All the meat is guaranteed pure meat from organic and/or free range animals.

The restaurant is a meeting point to enjoy good food and friends. Read more »
The Spritmuseum in Stockholm is a unique place to meet. You can dine, taste, shop and visit the art collection.

Enjoy an organic breakfast in a variety of ways in the cosy ‘living room’ of Clarion Hotel Sign in Stockholm. It can be very crowded at the buffet, but when you manage to fill your plate you are rewarded handsomely. Besides the usual breakfast assortment, there is a wide variety of greens (lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, vegetable sprouts), fruit (the pineapple is really sweet), soft boiled eggs, soy products and gluten free bread.
