Two activities ranking high on my list of favorite things in life is 1) sitting in my living room with best friends and 2) having a wonderful plate of food placed in front of me. I love my living room just as much as the next person, but in all honesty, it very rarely contains both best friends as well as four creative cooks whipping up a festive feast of the best sandwiches you’ll ever eat at the same time. This is why I’m very happy that I have found my new living room-away-from-home in Stockholm: Scandwich.
The menu is composed of (yes, you guessed it) big sandwiches as well as the occasional meat dish. The three main categories are meat, vegetarian, vegan or luxury, and the sandwiches offered varies from month to month. The produce is seasonal and always freshly prepared, with clear Scandinavian flavor references combined with world cuisine.
How about treating yourself to a Zucchini Galifiniakis: rye bread topped with carrot aioli, ginger pickled zucchini, cucumber salsa, baked greens and mushrooms, kale slaw, coriander and sesame seeds ? Or maybe, if you are more of a meat-eater, an order of Lay down pork with Caesar mayo, slow roasted peppers and tomatoes, pork belly, cheese and pickled rhubarb will tickle your fancy.
The atmosphere is cozy and homey, with quirky ceiling lights, miss-matched chairs and vintage tables. Scandwich also hosts music quizzes two Tuesday’s a month so if that’s your jam, make sure to check them out.
