In the eastern part of the central Norrmalm district lies Farang, a pan-Asian experience brandishing food from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam in an extensive menu. In an informal yet refined environment, delicious food, classic cocktails and sharing platters packed with flavors are served. Gaining favorable and enthusiastic reviews across the board, Farang has secured its reputation as one of the best places for Asian cuisine in the entire city. Housed in an old industrial building, the rustic décor adds to a cool, urban dining experience.

Awarded a coveted Michelin star, Volt can proudly flaunt a short, but extremely satisfying menu. The restaurant emphasises the seasonal adaptability of their ingredients, and on making sure that they are taken ‘straight from the woods, the sea and the fields.’ Moving away from the industrial and towards the natural, Volt serves bold, unusual dishes in a casual and unassuming setting in the outskirts of the Norrmalm district. Volt is one example proving once again that the Nordic cuisine is well established in the Swedish capital.

Out on the trendy Blaiseholmen lies the Grand Hotel that houses several restaurants under the supervision of Mathias Dahlgren, Sweden’s only gold medallist in the prestigious Bocuse d’Or competition. Matbaren serves lighter and smaller dishes, as a simpler alternative to its two Michelin star awarded neighbor and sister restaurant Matsalen. Matbaren therefore becomes an upscale dining experience in a more casual setting, where guests are encouraged to eat as many of the smaller dishes as they want from the à la carte menu.
