And then we have this absolutely wonderful restaurant on the left hand, just before you get to the castle, that I really implore you to try out instead. It's unpretentiously tucked away behind an arbour, the old red brick house (an old shop) with a certain old fashioned English ambiance to it is charming, but the best thing is really to sit outdoors. Since it's basically only a summer restaurant that's almost always feasible.
I'm, a vegetarian since there were only two TV-channels available in Sweden, sometimes slip and fall into the fishtank. Less and less, but yes it happens. And at this place they've always had a really deliciously prepared fish dish - the menu has always been extremely short, but oh so good - which I've opted for.
This time though, I asked for a vegetarian alternative and they were really accommodating - an extra plus for that! - and I just say, my oh my, am I glad I asked, because I was served the most fantastic risotto with chanterelles, garlic and spring onions - and I'm no risotto fan, too much of mushy babyfood for me - and grilled halloumi. How did they now I'm addicted to halloumi?!
And like that wasn't enough, I had a simply divine dessert, a creme brulee - which I've never been a fan of either - with blackberries & raspberries (top pic). Ah something that good must be sinful... The whole meal and the feeling afterwards can almost only be described as a completely satisfied sort of...um, post carnal pleasure thing, adding a very round tummy.
Meat eaters swear by the homemade burger, that's always on the menu. And someone whispered in my ear that the pecan fudge pie was amazing...
The name of the place? Taxinge Krog (Inn), roadmap. New proprietors, but the food is still as good, and the website has finally become a decent one, with photos that makes this place of wild strawberries some justice. Oh, do visit!
