Walking through Kungsträdgården, a park in the city center
Bakfickan is one of the restaurants located in Stockholm’s Opera House. Earlier this year we dined at the Michelin-starred Operakällaren, and were excited to go to the more casual Bakfickan for some typical Swedish dishes.
The space is very small – only 28 seats – and very cozy. I ordered my go-to dishes: Toast Skagen and Meatballs with all of the typical fixings (brown gravy, potato puree, lingon berries, and pickled cucumber slices). The meatballs were soooo delicious! Definitely the best I’ve had in Stockholm.

Bakfickan is located on the edge of Norrmalm, so you have a beautiful view of the water and other islands

Very cold and a bit wet from the snow outside
Toast Skagen starter for me
Each element of the Swedish meatballs was so delicious!
And Koen’s Swedish version of steak tartare – with pickled beets!
