Stockholm part two: Finding Japan in Sweden

March 9th, 2013

After this trip to Stockholm, I think we’re going to have to come up with an updated guide in Volume 2 of the Mjölk book. We discovered some new places, and met so many great people!

Here is an additional sampling of our most recent trip.

It has become a bit of a ritual for us to start our first night in any city by trolling the streets in search of a restaurant we have never heard of before. Since we were staying in Södermalm it wasn’t very difficult to walk down the street and peer into the windows of cozy restaurants and find something that looked interesting.

We walked by Blue light of Yokohama and saw this black circle with three copper pendants in the window.

In the next window was a brown vase on light blue tiles displaying an Ikebana arrangment.

Who doesn’t like Izakaya? It’s also a good sign when you see a bench of people talking and enjoying their food. We decided this would be our first meal of the trip!

The food was exactly what we were needing after a long flight: Classic Japanese comfort!

More to come all week! Stay tuned!
