Given its geography, Stockholm is a great place for all kinds of seafood. Herring, traditionally pickled by Swedish grandmothers everywhere, is prepared a number of different ways throughout the city — each one of them delicious.
Other traditional meals, such as the famous Swedish meatballs, proclaim the bounty of the countryside and the heartiness of Scandiavian living. Think lots of breads, sausages and dairy. The growth of tourism has ushered in a decline of traditional foods and influx of foreign cuisine. Narknoi and Koh Phangan both offer excellent Thai food in an unlikely setting.
No matter what you choose, beware: Restaurants in Stockholm range from expensive to very expensive.
