Vasastan is Stockholm’s second most densely populated district. It is a quieter, residential area that most tourists usually bypass. However, there are some excellent restaurants here that make it worth a visit. Here’s a list of our favorites.
The chef at Rolfs Kök understands how simplicity can be used as a way to enhance one’s dining experience. All guests are invited to sit around the open kitchen, watching from their seats as the food is prepared right in front of their eyes. Spicy jumbo shrimps with grilled gem lettuce and zander green peas is one of the most popular options here.
As the name suggests, Grill is an expert in grilling all sorts of food. The restaurant uses five different grilling techniques to prepare dishes, and boasts nostalgic decorations and vintage furniture, which provide the perfect ambience for social gatherings. Live bands perform every Tuesday and Saturday, filling the venue with vibrant tunes whilst the bartenders create refreshing cocktails.
Mexican food is very popular among the Swedes and many supermarkets have a big section dedicated to Mexican food. If you want an authentic taste of Mexico, however, you should visit La Neta. Inspired by Mexican street food, the owner of La Neta uses fresh ingredients to bring tropical South American flavors to Sweden. There are numerous options to choose from on the menu, including their signature quesadillas, which are perfect for those who like a bit of spice.
