Swedish Food? Where?

Kim Cooper Feb 21, 2003 09:36 PM

Hi -- Where can we get (not too expensive) Swedish food in the Bay Area? Besides IKEA? My partner is on a Swedish kick.
We live in San Mateo, so the closer to here, the better.
Thanks, Kim

    here's a link to many things Swedish....including restaurants. good idea to avoid Ikea, especially the meatballs - not worth the wait.

      Thanks for the link -- lots of good stuff, but I guess there aren't many Swedish restaurants around...

        I hate to admit it, but I have forgotten the name of the Swedish restaurant that the cashier at the Nordic House told me. Not a bakery, but an actual restaurant she recommended. You might call Nordic House and see if they can give you a recommendation for a good Swedish/Scandinavian restaurant.

        Off of that link:

        The Nordic House (Telegraph in Oakland) has seen a couple of postings here in the past -- usually about their winter feast, I believe? Driven by it, haven't made it in yet. Nearby is the Nedlam Bakery, so even if it doesn't work out, you can get some great donuts. ;-)

        I've been in the Sweden House Bakery in Tiburon. Seemed more like a tourist spot to me. Then again, I was only in Stockholm for about ten hours, and am not a huge bakery person, so I'd have a hard time telling what was "authentic". But it wouldn't be my first stop.
