    We had to try this after Song’s rave review and she was right! Fortunately, Bookatable has a special on – 3 courses for 336 crowns. This is a higher end resto where attention is paid to the service and the quality of the food. We were there at... more

Bibimbab review

   We had originally planned to eat at Ki-mama ramen but apparently they have water damage and is closed until May so we had to trek to their sister restaurant, Bibimbab. This place is tiny – there were about 20 seats and was practically full at 7pm on a Monday... more

Our last outing under Restaurant Week. I’ve been looking forward to this menu ever since I found out about Restaurant Week. I mean, who wouldn’t drool at the word bouillabaisse? I’ve never eaten this before but it’s the main reason I want to go to Provence. Enough said, let’s get... more

Melanders butik och brasserie – review

And the restaurant visits continue… I chose this restaurant to try out because of the menu. I still remember the scene in Julie & Julia about boeuf bourguignon. Who could resist French onion soup and boeuf bourguignon? This restaurant is above our budget but since it’s Krogveckan, we had to try... more

We booked 2 tables for 18 pers for 12:30 and it was packed with Chinese families so it was a good indication that the food’s good. Being in Scandinavia, we had to order from a dim sum menu instead of pointing at dishes on carts that the staff wheel around,... more

Review of Nem Nem Quan

By: Phuong | Comments Off on Review of Nem Nem Quan | | Category: Reviews, Vietnamese | Tags : ,

  We were 8 in the group and had a table for 8pm. Unfortunately, the restaurant was packed (because of Valentine’s Day?) and the service suffered as a result. First of all, they didn’t have enough menus to go around so we had to share. As most of us were novices at Vietnamese... more
