discovering our city | steam

steam-01 steam-02 steam-03 steam-04 steam-05went to steam for lunch. cheap, clean food and real good is my words. we shared the 12 veggie dumplings with a big bowel of noodle soup and it was plenty of food for us. totally forgot how delicious chinese cabbage is (it was in the noodle soup) and for a while I’ve been wanting to make this kimchi recipe from my new roots.   how pretty is the display of the food. really love the simple concept and we almost live next door to the one on söder…pretty lucky i’ll say. the ginger beer was spicy and bubbly and i liked it!

discovering our city | kallpressen

kallpressen-01 kallpressen-02 kallpressen-03 kallpressen-05 kallpressen-07 kallpressen-06met up with our friends today (which by the way is on a juice diet…pretty cool right!) so obviously we looked for a good juice bar here in stockholm and i came by kallpressen at the green kitchen stories blog. discovered that it was a fellow copenhagener martin who is the owner of this juice bar. really nice guy and really great juice. this juice bar takes me back to when we were living in LA and you could have green juices everywhere (used to live next-door to moon juice) we had the chlorophyll juice and the carrot juice with tumeric and apple and it was deliciously. it’s perfectly located just close to mosebacke torg where you can hang and enjoy your juice….great combo i’ll say. kallpressen is definitely worth a visit.

a mini tour of my hood. möbelmakeri is such a great little interior design shop and felt like i discovered a little secret because it’s tucked away at ringdansvägen. they have everything from beautiful posters by danish silke bonde, diamond lights by eric therner to colourful washi-tape. super super nice shop and the shop also has a webshop..check it out here. the café ett skafferi at “skvallertorget” really wins you over with the large out door seating area and will say pretty friendly prices. next stop is the vintage store lyckliga gatan selling both funitures, clothes and everything in between. such great service and so many lovely things i wanted to buy. check out those glass fishing floats, those would look so good in the ombre macramés i’m making…will let you know when they are for sale in my etsy store. and what about that south american map. good stuff! almost next door you’ll find another vintage store vintage fabriken and it’s is oh so lovely. here you’ll find a great deal of 50’s style. check out that blue flower coffee cup on the second last picture i’m pretty sure a cup of coffee from that cup will tast amazing. and the row of dresses…so cute. here is a picture of the three lovely ladies owning this vintage heaven and links to their blogs. i’ve attached my google map of midsommarkransen where you can find a few other places. go on and check out midsommarkransen and let me know if you find something great i don’t know about!

trädgården | sneaker swap


saturday we had great weather for a change and the city was buzzing. went to sneaker swap at trädgården and had smørrebrøds lunch. it didn’t beat halvvejen’s smørrebrød i wrote about here. so nice hanging in the sun, eating and hip hop blasting from the speakers. on our way home we stopped attantolunden where another girl was spinning records. she played a little danish hip hop as well with natasja…you can listen here.  totally girl power dj day.

they do love their fika [fee-ka] here in sweden. translated it’s coffee and cake break and who dosen’t love that combination! the other day we went to gildas to enjoy fika. had the carrot cake and blueberry crumble and it was good. really like the idea of serving the whipped creme and custard in old vintage coffee cups. found some old art deco coffee cups at etsy here and what about these pastel cups here you could use for the purpose.
