This quaint restaurant is located in the city of Jämtland, over 600 kilometres north of the capital city of Stockholm. It is run by a native to the area, his name is Magnus Nilsson, he trained in Pais as a sommelier and didn’t become a chef until he moved back home to his home town and decided to open up his restaurant. The restaurant focusses on what they call hyper-Swedish dishes, they have a unique menu with items such as raw cow’s heart with marrow and wild trout roe in dried pigs blood. While it may not sound like something you’d typically order it is said to be fantastic. So good in fact that it made it to number 25, on the list of 50 greatest restaurants in the world.

Located in the heart of Sweden, its capital city of Stockholm is the restaurant of Chef Björn Frantzen. He is a former football player who had a love for cooking and ventured into the restaurant world, and he did so very successfully and relatively quickly. His self-titled establishment offers a fresh twist on typical cuisine and was placed at number 31 on the list of top 50 restaurants. If that is not enough to convince you to go, it is also a two Michelin star restaurant, one of only 3 in the entire capital city. They are also a very socially aware establishment and the chain of restaurants does their best to give back to the community and those in need, meaning not only will you get a great dining experience, but you can feel good about it as well.
