Kajsas’s Fish in a fish restaurant, dating back to the 30’s, and located in Hötorgshallen, Stockholm. Today, my dear friend Clara runs the business together with her mother Maria in true Stockholm tradition, which means that fish restaurants are inherited by the women in the family. The most famous dish served at Kajsa’s is the fish soup. They serve over 200 liters it of each day. Of course the recipe is a secret, but If you cook a soup after the recipe below, you get a soup that is very similar to the one served by Kajsa’s.

The secret behind the Swdish pancakes is to let the batter rest for 30 minutes, so the flour can swell. Back in time, the housewife let the batter swell near the wood stove, where it was warm and nice. In Sweden pancakes are served as a dessert, commonly on thurday, when soup is served for dinner. Traditionally pancakes are served with fresh berries or jam, and whipped cream.
Reindeer mousse is one of the favorite samples at walking food tour Nordic Experience, which I do with Food Tours Stockhom. The mousse we taste at shop Hellbergs’ in Hotorgshallen has naturally got a secret recipe, but this mix is similar to the taste. This recipe comes from famous chef Leif Mannerström.
