Have a thing for botanical gardens. The oh so pretty palm houses where the air is damp and filled with palms and other tropical and subtropical plants and the lovely garden of course. If one day I get a (for now a dream) summerhouse I want to build a greenhouse out of old windows like this and have a green roof of succulents….and that will be my own botanical garden garden. When living in NYC I often went to Brooklyn Botanic Garden and I love this place. The japanese garden is oh so lovely.

This shop is next door to my favorite coffee shop Drop Coffee I wrote about here. Adisgladis  is this great shop and web-shop where you can find organic, upcycling off grid very usefull things and clothes. Bought my Swedish Kavat winter boots here, and lots of presents. In love with the Stanley thermos…how good looking are they. Have also invested in some of the great Klean Kanteen bottles.  Gonna last a life time and I love that idea instead of use & toss.

Discovering our city | Foderbrættet

Our new hood these days is Vesterbro, Copenhagen and after a long walk the other day we passed Foderbrættet on our way home. Popped in for at late lunch and it didn’t disappoint. Read Bitchslap’s review here and heard about this hot-dog heaven from so many already even though this establishment is only 6 weeks old. Love the booths and we got to sit there. Yay! So good service which is kinda rare for Copenhagen….or maybe I’ve been gone for to long. Tested the beef, tempura cod and the merguez (lamb). It’s a tough one but think my fave was the beef hot-dog…..and then again the tempura cod was delicious as well.

Discovering our city | Drop Coffee

This is hands down my favorite coffee shop in Stockholm. Lived way to close to this place and came by a little to often. Happy baristas makes a good cup of joe and that’s exactly what’s going on here. We got to place a stack of Bitchslap mags here as well….thanks Drop Coffee and thanks Benjamin (hand model) and congrats on winning the new Swedish Brewers Cup. Was so lucky to get beans from Drop Coffee from Beanerd Coffee….remember this insta here.

 

Discovering our city | Meatballs for the people

Discovered this shop Meatballs for the people on the corner of Nytorgsgatan an Kocksgatan at Söder.  We got wild boar meatballs and mashed potatoes with the best sauce ever. For lunch they serve one dish and I really love this concept where they make this one dish extremely good instead of having a huge menu. You sit at this communal table in the middle of the shop and the service is tip top. At the table the will have these jars of different pickled goodies you can add to you plate and crisp bread all very delicious. Will tell you this…we were back the weekend after to eat here again….it was that good. When living in Williamsburg we also had a favorite meatball restaurants: The Meatball Shop.

Recently Juiceverket opened up a shop at Söder Götgatsbacken. This little juicebar is really cozy…haven’t been to any of the others around the city. When we were there it was freezing outside and we went for one of the warm blends, Flogging Molly and it was delicious. Got a Fiskmacka with tuna and a Dr. Wellingtons special to top the whole thing of. We came back later same week and had the same combo again…guess it says it all.  When there we bumped in to this lovely lady, she has this amazing blog you can check out here.
