I haven´t done so much blogging the last 6 months, and when I wanted to start up now again I moved webhotel and all my pictures from previous posts got lost. Some I have on a back up driver and some don´t, and if I have time I will post the pictures again step by step.
Started my morning to jump into my car and drove to Stockholm for meetings, and ended up for dinner in Jönköping.
When it comes to asian food, I have some spots in Stockholm that I like more then other and one of the ones I like more then other is BERNS that are located very close to the popular Kungsträdgården where many activites happen, NK Shopping mall and popular Strandvägen and just few minutes and you are on Birger Jarlsgatan where many of the most trendy nightclubs are.
Berns is famouse for there asian food now and it´s very fresh plates and fresh food, for lunch it´s little less to choose between but still high quality and many enough so all in the company can something for them. For wine it´s no fun sortiment, but not often that happen at any restaurang in Swede.
Chef´s choice nigiri, 10 pieces, was my choice today for lunch. As wine to this I choose a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, New Zealand from producer Giesen. Very fresh and good food and the wine was ok, but better then the other options on the list for this lunch.
After all my meeting was to end in Stokcholm, I jumped into my car and drove to Jönköping in Småland, about 1,5 hour from Gothenburg, for dinner. This time I desided to try the spanish restaurant El Gordo. Own by two former hockey players in the local team HV71 and also former Swedish national team players.
Started with Crayfish soup and then I had Roe toast on tortilla bread. After that Hamburguesa – Miniburger with manchego, pickled onions and aioli. For the first two tapas I choose the white wine Protos Verdejo. For the rest tapas I went with red wine and the Protos Reserva.
Last tapas was CHORIZO CON PAN – grilled chorizo from Salamanca in bread with fried leeks and chiplote and they have put a CROQUETAS – filled with charcuterie on the plate as a bonus to me 🙂
Went to Stockholm for the wine show Garnacia Day at Operaterrassen and at the same time meet up my friend Alejandra from Bodegas Tempore sense she have brought her wines from Generacion range. After som tasting at the fair, me and her went out for dinner at restaurant Spanjorskan. We ordered a lots of tapas for us.
Pulpo a la Gallega with creamy potatoes, red pepper foam and crispy onions, and next was Tortilla Española with confit potatoes and onion mutton with grated curd cheese. Continue with Maíz Frito with smokey aioli and grated queso mahon before the Gambas al Ajillo with salsa de judia negra, chili and aioli. The last of these five tapas, I don´t remember the name of, maybe because is was not in top of my favorites.
Next tapas that was delivered to our table was Crispy long cooked chicken taco with creamy avocado and sour chilli. Then the Carnitas with long boiled right fox, chiliaioli and salsa on pineapple and lime, and of course some Croquetas de Iberico with aioli and sour red onion. Before dessert just a simple Bikini de Jamon with pata negra & serrano ham and creamy cheese. For dessert I desided to go with Churros with coffee ice cream, dulce de leche and chocolate. For me was the first time that I got a churros served as an taco.
After all this food, we both was very satisfy, but before we left Alejandra had a winetasting on her range Generacion wines for the whole staff, so for me I got to finish my night with a winetasting and that is something that I don´t mind.
