eating out - café vasaslätten


This could quite possibly be the best Greek salad I've ever had. Minus the (awful as always) sun dried tomatoes it was remarkably lovely in all its simplicity. Capers usually fall into the sun dried-tomatoes-category but they actually added something pleasing to this dish made with fresh lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, red onion, red paprika, leek add some special and very tasty oil based dressing. The bread were perfect pieces of chewy loveliness. Mustn't forget that the way the salad was displayed was quite a work of art too ~


Summer café Vasaslätten, in Hagaparken, is otherwise best known for its wonderful cardamom-nut buns "Hagabullen" (the Haga bun). I only enjoyed a bite of this one, but it was freshly made cardamom heaven, with a perfect consistency of chewiness and succulence.


A large Hagabulle 25 sek, coffee or tea with refill 25 sek. And this is my overall impression of the place;

Food - 4/5
Service - 3/5
Ambiance - 4/5 (at least on a warm summer day with the sun through the foliage)
Value for money - 4/5

That looks a lovely place to sit in the summer sun.

I HATE sun dried tomatoes too.

Have a lovely weekend Miss Pia, I look forward to seeing what you will eat this weekend.

Thanks, DD!

Oh it really was and I can't wait to go back, Julie! (And skip the sundried tomatoes of course:)
