Matrosen Stockholm – Best Smörrebröd in town

restaurants
Restaurants

Smörrebröd is an open sandwich originally from Denmark. The tradition is to take a thin slice of rye bread and cover it up with a mountain of toppings.

Along the busy street of Skeppsbron, close to the Royal Palace, is Matrosen. A restaurant only serving the Danish Smörrebröd. And Stockholmers love it, and so do I. During summer months it's fun to sit outside on their small patio, watching people walk by and having traffic very close up - it is part of the Stockholm experience.

If you don't know what a smörrebröd is, it is an open sandwich originally from Denmark. The tradition is to take a thin slice of rye bread and cover it up with a mountain of toppings. I love the egg and anchovies, it is salty, creamy and yet refreshing. The Matrosen smörrebröd has the right sizes on the smaller side, allowing visitors to have a few to try. When I go there I always must have the pan-fried plaice (fish) with a curry remoulade sauce, it is so good. That one is done to order, so it will be some minutes before you get it, but in the meantime, you'll have the opportunity to try others.

The classics also include rost biff, remoulade, dried onions and greens. Normally I go for three smörrebröd. With that you must drink beer and an aquavit. Don't be scared when the pour of aquavit almost runs over the rim, it's a perfect pour! They have a large list of different aquavits to choose from. Only open 11 am to 6 pm, closed Sundays and it can get crowded. Smörrebröd from SEK 97 and Aqvavit SEK 30/cl.
