Videgård, Humlegårdsgatan 17 (Sture-shopping mall), Stockholm, Sweden
Peru meets Japan and China! Fusion or Confusion?
The introduction in Videgård’s webpage starts with that question. For us, the dinner experience definitely started with confusion: we were running around on the street Humlegårdsgatan like headless hens, trying to find the restaurant. After a while, we found a note on a wall. ”Please enter this door, go through the house, through the garden, up the stairs, and to the left.”
Said and done. After arriving, there was no more confusion. The place is quite spacious, warm rose-beigish colors mixed with green plants and Peruvian posters on the walls. Space is quite open, not giving much privacy to the visitors, but at the same time cozy, hip and laidback cool. So is the clientele. Read about the restaurant (in Swedish) here.
We both took the Nikkei tasting menu, a menu containing eight small dishes starting with ceviche with scallops, prawns, and seabags, taking us to some short ribs, ending up with an almond cake with plums and whipped cream — with a lot of other yummies in between. Unfortunately, Videgård does not offer a wine pairing, but we chose a (white) Riesling for the tasting menu and the Umeshu for the dessert.
And for those of you wanting to try Videgård out, here’s a recommendation: go through the Sturegalleria. And enjoy!
