Skansen – Christmas Market

Christmas spirit at Skansen

The holidays wouldn’t be the same without Skansens Christmas market! A tradition with lots of Christmas spirit that my family have had for many years. We stroll around in the lovely smell of Glögg and Christmas trees, looking at the pretty handcrafts and tasting all the delicious Swedish sweets and traditional Christmas delicacies – a must!

Restaurang Farang – Southeast Asian food

Southeast Asian flavors and delicious cocktails

If you are into Asian flavors, just like me, you have to visit this New York inspired gem. The absence of windows and the location on the ground floor of an industrial building makes the perfect cosmopolitan atmosphere for a Friday night dinner with friends. We go for their fantastic set menu and share around the table. Imagine Softshell crab, crispy pork and sashimi Vietnamese style…and delicious cocktails!
