When you’re hungry (or hangry even) in Stockholm


Stockholm is an amazing place for food, drinks, and great company! By now there’s no secret that Stockholm is one of my favorite places to visit. It’s only an hour from Norway (by airplane) but still so different in many ways. This city is just really easy to visit!


Here are some of my favorite places to eat.


Hotel Diplomat
Strandvägen 7C, 114 56 Stockholm

This is, first of all, a hotel, but second, it’s a great restaurant. There is a small outside area along the sidewalk where you can eat to get some sun at the same time. I can only recommend the outside if you don’t mind that it gets really hot, in the summertime though. Don’t forget sunscreen. Inside there’s a beautiful atmosphere and the food is equally as great.


Please look up the Skansen sandwich on the menu, I know a lot of people love that! My favorite is the shrimp salad with eggs and avocado, that’s the best!



Södra Blasieholmshamnen 2, 103 24 Stockholm

Lydmar has been my go-to hotel in Stockholm for many, many years and still is. They have the best cheeseburger which is not this, you know, flat looking burger, but a real burger. You should also try the tuna tartar. Some days I used to have it multiple times a day. I know. But it’s that good!

At Six
Brunkebergstorg 6, 111 51 Stockholm

The restaurant at the At Six Hotel knows their food and the chefs are some of the best. We all have different experiences but mine was top notch. The waiters explained everything in details and really knew what they were serving. That’s not always the case, unfortunately. It’s hard to describe the food but I would definitely give it a try. I can say this; the food has flavor and a lot of it!


There’s a new playground in town

Hotel At Six
Brunkebergstorg 6, 111 51 Stockholm

I brought my little brother along to Stockholm to get some inspiration and also to check out the new Hotel At Six. What a hotel! Scandinavian style all the way and when I say style I mean down to the smallest details. Pure perfection. No, this was (unfortunately) not a paid trip, some might wonder.


When you walk into the reception area you’re immediately faced with a massive head, a two meeter tall sculpture, it sets the tone for the rest of the hotel, nothing is left to chance. Everything from the door handles, chairs in the dining area and the open kitchen facing the restaurant guests.


I have to admit I was a bit disappointed about the fact that they didn’t have a pool. No big deal you say? I have a thing for floating around in a large pool by my self. Nothing is more calming. Well, “nothing” is a bit much, but at least there’s not many things that trumps an hour of pool floating. (I’m warming up to the idea of laughing emojis now.) At least they have an impeccable gym. Truly awesome! Big, and it has everything you need. Take my word for it!



On the second floor, take the stair and walk to the left, you’ll fint the Cocktail Bar. Lets talk about details again. The bartenders are both experienced and welcoming. That alone will make you have a cocktail or five. And if not, make sure to stand in line for the pool table. My brother and I played for three hours straight. To the other guests, I apologize. When you looked away we prepared a new game real fast. It was simply too much fun!


I will have another post up soon with my favorite drinks from the Cocktail Bar. Heaven!



My favorite hotels in Stockholm has always been either Lydmar or Nobis, even though I would pick Lydmar over Nobis. I guess I have three favorite homes away from home now.



New York, New York


I wanted to summarize my New York trip in photos. New York is an awesome place, just don’t travel during the burning hot summer, in other words July is not the best month to go to New York, the concrete jungle, it gets hot.

I’ve been to New York many times before but this time we decided to stay at The James Hotel in SoHo. At first I found 11 Howard, a stylish hotel with a Scandinavian flare and style. It will definitely be 11 Howard next time. Anyway, The James was great, and they have a gym! I love that! The only thing I love more than the ability to have a gym in-house is having a roof top pool. With that being said, don’t get tattoos day two. Enough said.

NY is filled with special places and visiting all of New York is nearly impossible, especially in seven days. Here is my little New York guide.


The James SoHo New York

The James has built it’s own environment, almost like a little jungle around the hotel. A lot to see and great photo op’s. I would definitely recommend The James SoHo.

Egg Shop, SoHo

There are so many breakfast places to visit. If you weren’t really hungry waking up, some of these places will get you hungry fast! Egg Shop have many different egg dishes, not surprisingly, among other things. My favorite breakfast is for sure toast with avocado and eggs.
