There are a number of fantastic healthy eating places in Stockholm and it is a city that loves a good salad, as well all manner of different pickled vegetables. However, there is a less healthy item that many Stockholmers could not live without—the humble hot dog. This means that there are a number of places in the city that provide excellent and high-quality hot dogs. There are humble gatukoks (street kitchens) spread out across the city where you can grab a grilled or broiled hotdog that will match up against any other food you can get in Stockholm. Here are ten of the best places to grab a hotdog, whether its 2 a.m. on a Friday night or 10 a.m. on a Monday morning.

1. Arengrillen

This is a classic Stockholm gatukok located right at the entrance to the beautiful Tessinparken in Stockholm’s Ostermalm. Arengrillen is a simple kiosk which often has small tables outside so you can sit down while you enjoy your hot dog. They have all different variations to enjoy, so you can have a hot dog with fries or mashed potato and with or without bread. They even do a French hotdog, where you get your sausage in half a baguette with mayonnaise. If you want to try a classic Stockholm kiosk while also experiencing one its most lovely parks, then this place is perfect.

2. Torggrillen

Placed slap bang in the center of the city, Torggrillen is situated right by Stockholm’s concert house, where some of Northern Europe’s best classical music can be heard. If you are looking for the ultimate culture clash, then attending a performance by the Stockholm Philharmonic and following it with a grilled hot dog and mashed potato is perfect. The kiosk itself is big and blue and very hard to miss. Alongside hot dogs, it also sells grilled sandwiches and fries, if you are in the mood for something else. Don’t expect gourmet food, but if you just want a classic grilled hot dog, few places are better.

3. Friends Arena

This is a bit of a cheat but it just has to be on the list. Friends Arena is the national stadium of Sweden and every single kiosk at the venue sells hot dogs. There is something very Swedish about going to Friends, watching a football match, and enjoying a beer and a hot dog. There are also concerts and local football team AIK use Friends as their home stadium but it is the Swedish national team matches that always fill the stadium and are well worth attending. The hot dogs on their own are nothing to write home about, but somehow, combined with the atmosphere of the stadium, they suddenly taste far better.

Günters

Günter prides himself on having a variety of hot dogs from all around the world in his small little kiosk—in fact, he has twenty-five different countries covered on his menu, including Argentinian chorizo, Hungarian kabanos, and German wurst. Günters is a classic neighborhood place that has both regulars and people just passing by. It is up in the north of the city near Vasaparken, giving you a great place to enjoy your hot dog. All of his hot dogs are 42 centimeters, which is over a foot long, making them of excellent value.

Günters, Karlbergsvägen 66, Stockholm, +46 831 17 71

4. Dogfood

Restaurant, Swedish, Fast Food, Street Food, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-free, Dessert

A restaurant rather than a stand, it delivers an exciting menu in a cool and relaxed setting, ensuring that the food matches the vibe, which is unpretentious but still interesting. They have six different hot dogs, all with different toppings and different sausages. They even have a dessert hot dog, which is ice cream served in a grilled hot dog bun with caramel sauce. So if you are looking for a something a little more upmarket than a kiosk, Dogfood is ideal.
