Tonight to celebrate our anniversary and to thank Bec for treating me to this holiday for Valentine’s Day I treated us to dinner at SK Mat & Människor. Now this is certainly not a budget dinner. However it is by far the best meal I have ever eaten in any country.
We decided to walk to the restaurant as it was only a couple of KM away from our hotel.
When we arrived we were warmly welcomed and seated at a great table overlooking the plating station. The kitchen is an integral part of the restaurant meaning you get to see all of the cooking and plating up of your dishes before they arrive.
I had already decided on the 6 course sample menu and once at the restaurant I also decided to have the wines to accompany each dish.
Each dish was fully explained at service and a full description of each wine was given along with advising why it complimented each course.
My favourite course was probably the shellfish broth. The dill oil which bubbled up through as you ate the dish was truly sensational.
(minimum 2 hours)
Beetroots with roasted rape seed, sour cream and matured Swedish cheese.
Shellfish broth with shrimps, crown dill and tomatoes.
Skrei with smoked oil, vinegar onions, parsley and blue mussels.
Lamb with sea buckthorn and mustard glazed swede, creamed pointed cabbage and lamb jus.
Selection of Swedish cheeses with condiments.
Banana ice cream with rum raisins and yoghurt foam.
The six course meal costs 715 SEK
With an additional 595 SEK for the wine. Approx £120 each in total
This isn’t by any means the sort of dinner I would normally have and certainly not whilst away on holiday. But if you are able to eat here I can’t recommend it highly enough. The waiting staff were all amazingly friendly and knowledgable. On top of explaining each dish and wine they were even happy to talk to us about our plans for the next day and which islands to visit etc.
The walk back to the hotel seemed quicker than the walk out. And despite the temperature being -4 our coats hat, gloves and the bottle of wine each kept us warm
Safe travels everyone
