Me and Toyooka-san went to “Sjätte Tunnan”, a restaurant with medieval theme in Gamla Stan.
I ordered mead and it was absolutely delicious. We got initially served bread with some kind of cheese spiced with pepper and ginger (we think). Irrespective, it was very delicious.
I really like the atmosphere at Sjätte Tunnan. It feels like you’ve traveled back in time. The walls and roof is all made of stone and the room is shaped like a tunnel. The tables are simple in wood and the benches are covered by fur. Shields and axes decorates the walls.
He said that it tasted really good so maybe I’ll try that dish next time. It got served with blueberries. He told me that there’s a lot of wild boars in Kobe where he grew up but they are not to eat.
I ordered cheese-covered beetroots and yellow beets. I’ve never been so fond of root-fruits so I thought it was about time for me to try it out for real.
It tasted really good with the cheese and walnuts, but you get enough of it quite fast.
Since forks were considered to be tools of the devil back in the days, people never put a fork in their mouth. Hence they don’t serve food with forks at this restaurant either.
We had a very nice time as always, and outside it started to snow heavier and heavier. The news says that a Russian winter is oncoming…
