Meatballs for the people Stockholm – The most Swedish

restaurants
Restaurants

At Meatlballs for the people you'll get the real stuff. Meatballs, mash, gravy, pickled cucumber, lingonberry... Don't forget to take an akvavit!

You can not have been to Sweden and not had lingonberry sauce (tart like cranberry) and pickled cucumbers and of course meatballs. The proper ones. Every Swede has a grandmother who made the best meatballs in the world or hopefully a mum or dad cooking great meatballs. In Sweden, we have meatballs for almost every holiday there is. Come Xmas, Midsummer, Easter or whatever holiday, there are meatballs on the menu.

The variations are endless on how to spice the fried balls, and for Xmas an addition of allspice is added for a Christmasy feel. At Meatlballs for the people you'll get the real stuff. Meatballs, mash, gravy, pickled cucumber, lingonberry. I prefer to drink a glass of cold milk with this dish, but that is just my preference. This restaurant is in the SOFO area of Stockholm in an old red brick building, close to the subway, and there is a bus stop nearby as well. It is not a very big place, and reservations are a good idea, especially during weekends. If you are a meat lover, you should try the Big plate of meatballs (SEK 329), serving 8 different kinds of meats, 16 meatballs to share. From the classic menu (SEK 229), you choose what side you want and 1 type of meatball. There are 12 different kinds of meats and vegan options to choose from. Don't forget to take an akvavit!

Here I always struggle to choose between the Praguer and Schnitzel Feldkurat Katz. When it comes to beer, I go for Prímator or the Pilsner Urquell.
