Time Out says

A traditional Swedish food-hall with original features and a classically Swedish menu to suit

There is surely nowhere better to enjoy a classic Swedish worker’s meal than at a traditional Stockholm ‘foodhall’ (similar to a German beerhall, but with the focus on the food). The western-central district of Vasastan hasn’t always been upmarket-hipster, something that Tennstopet is testament to. Here there’s un-crafted, Swedish lager on tap and everything on the menu is classically Swedish: served to you at white-linen-covered tables against wood-panelled walls. The hearty food comes in generous portions, on massive white plates. There are also a lot of mayo-based dips and dill, but it wouldn’t be authentically Swedish without them.

Time Out tip: For a cheaper meal, opt for the fixed-price lunchtime menu, centred on the dish of the day, which is served between 11.30 and 14.30, from Monday to Friday.
