Riche · Stockholm

The restaurant Riche is one of Stockholms most exclusive addresses. Being guest at Riche is something special so I would recommend to rob your piggy bank and go there to enjoy a typical Swedish dish. After a look at the menu I get to my decision pretty fast. I need to try Köttbullar that I know as meatballs from the cafeteria in IKEA. And this is exactly what I find later on my plate, served with pickled cucumber and cranberries. My Swedish companion explains me that Köttbullar are really no tourist trap but you will also find them regularly on the table of Swedish homes. Otherwise they also eat a lot of fish and seafood.

Besides the delicious food at Riche I really like the atmosphere. It is very laid back and the interior is mixed with small art installations like a screen showing a miniature of the bathrooms and a chair climbing up the wall. I can also take a glance in the kitchen and watch the chef working. After my little tour through the restaurant and the bar I leave the rooms with a happy belly and wish I could take some Köttbullar with me in my pocket.
