THE PELIKAN RESTAURANT
Swedish home-style food is currently being celebrated. Unlike the traditional food of many countries, that of Sweden has won popularity in many parts of the world. But preferably eaten in an historical environment.
Today the PELIKAN sits on the island called Söder (“South”) in central Stockholm. Built into a turn-of-the-century building, the pub, as well as its guests lives a good life in these Jugend locales. But today’s Pelikan is not only a creation of its own ancient history.
There is a very high ceiling in this house, at least six or seven meters.
An artist has decorated the building with animal and plant paintings in Jugend style, “Art Deco”, paintings directly onto the ceiling and walls. Wood panels cover the length of the wall’s lower half, into which benches have been built.
The guests are of all types. Artists come here, as well as musicians and actors. You can also meet everyone from left-wing politicians to stockbrokers.
If you go to Pelikan to eat, you’ll be eating rather Swedish. What is served at the PELIKAN is traditional Swedish “home-style” food. There are perhaps now also those readers who have tried the traditional food of different countries and so doing become scared off by such attempts. Don’t let that happen in Sweden.
The PELIKAN’S traditional food has become world-renowned over the years, smorgasbord being just one example. At Pelikan, you can try an SOS, which stands for “smör, ost and sill”, or butter, cheese and herring, or fried pork with onion sauce. To be extra genuine, you can have a “snaps” with the food or just go to socialized, drink from their amazing huge beer collection and do not be afraid to ask the well trained staff for their suggestions on which beer will suit your taste best.
The PELIKAN will indeed satisfied your need for a traditional swedish home made meal, leaving you with more than a fantastic experience. Don’t leave Sweden without a taste.
