Restaurant Review: 2112

Heard about this place for quite some time but tried it. A few weeks ago I finally got the opportunity. There are plenty of places that serves burgers and most of them are pretty

The Location. It’s on Magsinsgatan in down town Gothenburg and even inside the moat. Magasinsgatan is an are that holds a good amount of places that serves good food so only by being here raises the expectations.

The interior is nice but nothing that stands out as extraordinary. However I don’t really want that. It has a good bar where you can see that there is a good selection of beers, whiskey and even what seams to be better kinds of tequilas. Rock music in the speakers and music awards behind the bar. Thats because its owned by members of the classic Swedish rockband Inflames. Solid and honest interior.

What to drink. This is a not only good place to have a beer, its a great place to have a beer. I could easily go here just to have a great beer. The owners also have a brewery and their beer is on the menu here together with a wide selection of other good breweries. I had one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted here. And it where the Odd Island Brewery A Passage To New England that obviously is a New England IPA.

The food. What you’re most likely here for the burgers. I had the smoke on the water burger with regular fries and chili aioli. Good meet perfectly made great ingredients. This is the best in town. It’s among the best burgers I’ve tasted. The fries is just as I want then with good taste and perfectly crispy on the outside.

Island of Ven

Good food, drinks and stunning landscapes. Ven is an island in the middle of the narrow between Sweden and Denmark.

Me and my G have just arrived to the mainland after 3 days on the island. Still I’m trying to find a reason to go back.

Our accommodation for our stay at Ven has been on the camping Camp Ven in our tent. This place as been really good. Clean toilets and showers. What I should call the right amount of guests. A bar and resultant with both good food and drinks much better than I’ve expected out of a camping. Good service, I can really recommend this place.

First day we spent settling down at the camping and having a nice evening with dinner and wine.

Our second day we rented bikes in order to ride around the entire island which takes about 90 minutes. A beautiful ride. However we to a break in one of the harbors to have a smoked salmon lunch with potato salad and a beer. After that we continued to a beach and took a swim and then returning to the camping.

After short stop at the camping we took the bikes to Spirits of Hven Backafallsbyn for a gourmet tasting. Where we tasted Vodka, Akvavit, Gin and Whiskey and learned what drinks you could do from some of them and proportions. The also talked about the history and the making of the different spirits and of the distillery.

After the tasting me and G had a great dinner at their restaurant. Where we both where very pleased with the food and the setting. Lovely outdoor section of the restaurant.

Then we headed back to to camping and took the ferry back to the mainland. The easiest way to get both to and from the island is by ferry from Landskrona.

Ven where a super nice short stop at our vacation and I can highly recommend it. The fact is that I would more than love to go back.

Food, Beer & Copenhagen

Right now in Copenhagen for about 24 hours on vacation. So I’ve been here before and seen the little mermaid, Nyhavn and a few other tourist sites. So, what to do? It’s pretty simple. I love this city and I love food and beer. Which in this case seams to be a pretty perfect combo. Because that’s something that Copenhagen does really good.

Me and my wife started of by talking a walk and go shopping in the district of Vesterbro that is a really cool district. I found a new shirt and T-shirt.

Then we had booked a table at Mad & Kaffe after recommendations from a friend that lives in Copenhagen. Here I had the best ice the I ever had. Sweet ice the with passion fruit. Already here this where a really good place that I had the salmon sandwich and the fries with aioli and it became a great place. One of my best experiences of Scandinavian food.

After lunch it was nice to walk from Vesterbro to Nørrebro along the lakes and water in central Copenhagen. The warm sunny weather and the beautiful and diverse architecture made this replacing and beautiful. Got that summer vacation vibe.

Then we stopped at Brus which is a stunning beer and food bar in a brewery run by To Øl. I found this place while looking for beer bars and breweries in Copenhagen. This is hipster place with classic Scandinavian interior and amazing beer. Probably my new favorite place in Copenhagen. Can’t wait to visits the place again.

A walk back to the hotel and then dinner at Warpigs in Kødbyen. Which also is a brewery pub know for its meat in Texan bbq style and their beer. Real great meat and good beer in a big square with a lot of other restaurants.

Amazing day in Copenhagen and a great day just hangin around.

Friends and BBQ

Arrived in south of Sweden after a day at work together with old friends that lives down here. Amazing to be here and to catch up. Had an amazing evening hanging out with my oldest friend A and his girlfriend P and their amazing kids and my friend C. So A have made a magical BBQ buffet for us when we arrived and me and C had some nice beer with us. So first we spent some time playing with the kids and after they went to bed we adults had some beers and watched some hockey and talked,

However, now it’s bed time in order to be ready for the world championships of hockey tomorrow in Copenhagen where me A and C will spend the entire day. I’m so looking forward to it! Good night see you tomorrow!

Arrived in Copenhagen

Finally in Copenhagen and what I’ve been looking forward to this. So tonight have we checked in at Hotel Saga where we are staying this weekend.

After we had checked in we took a stroll down to the meet district that nowadays is a real cool district filled with cool restaurants. This the old meat district in Copenhagen. I was so impressed and I could go here many more times in order to try more restaurants.

However, we ended up at a place called BOB – BioMio Organic Bistro. Which looks like and old auto repair shop or an old hardware store from the outside. Interior and food as also amazing.

After the restaurant we called it a night in order to be well rested until the rest of the weekend.

Luxury Tuesday

Today have been a pretty strange day. I’ve been home since 16:15 which almost never happened. Had a meeting after work that got changed into a phone meeting so I got a lot of time that I haven’t expected.

So I made a home made meal (which I usually do but not like this) with steak and fries and a little glas is red Italian wine as I listened to podcasts about the NHL trade deadline, which where last night.

So I’m ready for a new week. Last weekend I where in Halmstad, blog post is coming on that one. And this upcoming weekend I’m heading to Oslo, Norway in order to spend some time with my wife. But first it’s and full week of work in front of me.

Restaurant Review: BAO Kitchen

BAO Kitchen is located in the “old town” of down town Kungsbacka, Sweden. Rather close to the central station and Kungsbacka square. From what I know this is a rather new place that serves Asian fusion food.

The interior is probably best described as green and rustic with focus on nature and natural material such as wood. Not the most cosy vibe when I first looked in from the street but once you got in and got you table it was much better than expected and a nice relaxed vibe.

How about the food? I tried a bun meal and a salmon bowl. The buns where probably the best buns I’ve tried and the bowl where real good but not the best I’ve tried. Still very high class and this is without a doubt the best restaurant I’ve ever tried in Kungsbacka. The food where good, exciting and something new for me and as the same time high quality. Best restaurant in town! I highly recommend this place.
