A tasty oasis of Italian food.
3 years ago, Eataly opened up an amazing foodhall in the beautiful Röda Kvarn cinema, and since then the food has only gotten better. It’s no secret that Swedes love Italian food, and this place celebrates that enthusiasm, combining authentic Italian food with Swedish culture. [Photos: @eatalysthlm]
As an archipelago, Stockholm is sometimes dubbed ‘The Venice of the North’ because you’re never too far from a waterway in this city, and so bridges are the theme of this amazing foodhall. The brilliant minds behind this venture felt that there was a kinship between the cultures of Venice and Stockholm and that this foodhall would provide a wonderful place for those two cultures to interact. And they were right!
So, what kind of tasty dishes can you sample here, I hear you ask. Well, there’s plenty to stuff your face with at Eataly! You can buy freshly-baked focaccia, with loads of toppings like beautiful Italian tomatoes, delicious hams, and lashings of gorgeous Italian cheese. This delicious, soft bread has an amazing crust but it’s fluffy and light once you bite into it.
Lunchtimes at Eataly are fantastic – you can make your own salad from a choice of high-quality Italian products or grab a panini to go, and enjoy something that’s guaranteed to be delicious in your lunch hour. Then there’s tasty artisan chocolate to be had at another stall. Or, you could go for a creamy, indulgent gelato – perfect for bringing a bit of Italian luxury to your lunch break.
Of course, both Italians and Swedes are crazy about coffee, so you’d expect a delicious brew from Eataly, right? And they definitely deliver this, with Caffe Vergnano serving up the smoothest coffee and tastiest pastries. Eataly is open Monday to Sunday from 11am – 8.30pm, and we’d spend all day there if we could! Head to Biblioteksgatan 5, 111 44 to see for yourself how great this place is.
