The award-winning sommelier on her favourite places to drink good wine in Stockholm and a great farmers’ market in her neighbourhood



Kommendörsgatan 16, 114 48 Stockholm; +46 8 662 34 00,
“I like to go to Volt. They do good wine – it’s always about the wine for me! – and it’s a nice place to be.” Erika describes the food as “Relae-style”, by which she means carefully-sourced ingredients presented with minimal interference in the style of Christian Puglisi’s Copenhagen restaurant Relae.


113 55, Roslagsgatan 6, 113 55 Stockholm; +46 8 509 022 24,
“It’s so vibrant and fun and it’s not complicated: you can go in and have a drink or pizza and good wines – I only go to restaurants that have good wines! The guys who run it have been working at places like Fäviken and Frantzén – they are good guys and they have big social networks so everybody got very excited when they opened.” We ate at Babette on our first night in Stockholm and loved it – their pizzas are particularly good.

19 Glas

Stora Nygatan 19, 111 27 Stockholm; +46 8 723 19 19,
“My favourite wine bar and the best natural wine bar in Stockholm. They also serve good organic food – there’s a five-course menu but you can grab a bite in the bar.”

Tweed Bar

Lilla Nygatan 5, 111 28 Stockholm; +46 8 506 400 82,
“Two steps from 19 Glas, above the Victory Hotel, you find the Tweed Bar. They do really good classic cocktails and a lot of cigars and booze. In the summer time you can drink in the outdoor terrace.”

Oaxen Krog & Slip

Beckholmsvägen 26, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden; +46 8 551 531 05,
“This is a really nice restaurant.” Highly-regarded chef Magnus Ek closed the original Oaxen, on an island of the same name in the Stockholm archipelago, and relocated to the city in 2013. Oaxen Krog is the fine dining side of the restaurant, which sits by the waterfront on Djurgarden; Erika takes us to Oaxen Slip (pictured above), the bistro side, for pizzas and beer in the sun and it is very nice indeed.

Drop Coffee

Wollmar Yxkullsgatan 10, 118 50 Stockholm; +46 8 410 233 63,
“I like this roaster and they have a coffee shop in Södermalm that I go to sometimes – the place is nice.”

Hornstulls Bodega

Hornsbruksgatan 24, Stockholm; +46 8 22 00 21,
“Good wine and also good cocktails.”


Cajsa Warg

Renstiernas gata 20, 116 31 Stockholm; +46 8 642 23 50,
“I shop here for organic food.” – Erika

Summer Farmers’ Market

Katarina Bangata Street, Stockholm (open Saturdays, August to October)
Great farmers’ market near Erika’s flat in Södermalm that’s open only on Saturdays during the harvest season.

Green Rabbit

111 40, Tegnérgatan 17, 111 40 Stockholm; +46 8 20 46 26,
Erika recommends this bakery co-owned by top-ranking Swedish chef Mathias Dahlgren.

Urban Deli

Nytorget 4, 116 40 Stockholm; +46 8 599 091 80,
“I also like this food shop on Nytorget.”
