Vigårda was opened a few years ago by two Swedish chefs named Melker Andersson and Danyel Couet, and today there are two restaurants in Stockholm. One is located on Kungsgatan, but the one I’ve been to is located connected to the shopping mall Mood. Both at the very centre of the city though.
It’s something with the interior – they’ve really nailed it. Decorations hanging from the ceiling makes you think of country life and farmlands, and the staff’s even wearing overalls.
Even if I don’t see it that way, Vigårda is a fast food restaurant. They sell burgers of varying kinds with fries and different dips, you order at the cashier, and get the food almost straight away. Still, you can tell the products they use are fresh – not greasy nor comparable with any other fast food places.
During 2015, twelve different well-known Swedes will have a special burger in their names at Vigårda, on the menu described as “Månadens burgare” (the burger of the month). So there will be some experimental flavours to try onwards.
Some evenings they invite different DJ’s – so the place can turn into a pre-party hang out as well. And hey, even though they offer good food, it’s fairly cheap! Even the beers and drinks are.
