20. March 2010: Restaurang Brasserie Stuket

| March 21, 2010 | 2 Comments

The Brasserie Stuket is situated on the Stockholm island of Södermalm (historically like the Bronx in New York but nowadays the most fancy area in Stockholm – I’ve been told by a sightseeing tour guide). You can get to the restaurant by a 10-minutes footwalk from the metro station “Medborgarplatsen”.

The Stuket is in a side street and doesn’t really hit your eye from the outside – only a sign indicates that there actually is a restaurant. Once you’ve found it and entered the place, the interior doesn’t really overwhelm you either, unfortunately. But that was it already with the shortcoming of the place: The walls are somewhat orangely painted and the furniture looks somehow just being put there in order to fit in as many people as possible.

Looking at the people dining at Brassiere Stuket it’s easily realizable that there are no tourists – Swedish people only. And usually a restaurant full of locals is an indication for good food. This turns out to be true (see below).

The waitress – which is at the same time the owner of the place – is very helpful and friendly. The menu offers a nice choice of Swedish dishes. The menu is not exhaustive but for each course there is a nice variety of dishes which all look quite tasty.

As a starter I had roasted goat cheese which was really good. A bit special in taste, but definitely interesting (in a positive way).

As a main dish, I had a grilled beef steak with mashed potatoes, beans in bacon and tomato – on a wooden plate. The main dish was absolutely good – nothing to complain about: Good quality of the meat, made to the exact point, and definitely enough.

As a desert I enjoyed deep fried camembert with a berry chutney – quite good: Especially the combination of the slightly liquid, melted cheese, the crunchy crust and the sweet chutney gave a really interesting combination.

One outstanding point was something you unfortunately don’t experience often enough anymore. The owner actually went to our table for every course to ask during we were eating if we liked the meal or not – a gesture actually not necessary but very pleasantly to experience again.

Finally, the price performance ratio is absolutely great. Including a bottle of red wine (don’t look for anything too special in Sweden – wrong country!) and coffee, one can’t complain at all about the overall price.

All in all, the Brassiere Stuket is absolutely a recommendable place to go to: The food is really good, the service is totally friendly and reliable, the price performance ratio is outstanding, and the usual customer is a local! The only thing which lowers the positive effect of the experience a bit is the atmosphere – that’s definitely a point which could be improved!

I started the blog in October 2009, while living in Milan which I definitely consider to be one of the food capitals of the world. I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems!
