Haberdash
Opened in 2012, Haberdash is now one of the best menswear stores in the country. I go for the great mix of Americana and Italian sprezzatura (nonchalant) styles of clothing and for Scandinavian brands (Uniforms for the Dedicated, Our Legacy). —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

It’s tiny, but the restaurant makes the best sushi in Vasastan. (Just don’t come with a group.) Expect hip-hop on the stereo and outstanding food on the plates. I like the makimono rolls, especially the shrimp tempura roll with Sriracha mayo. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

Upplandsgatan
Along this vintage-lover’s dream street, many stores sell antiques. You can find anything from French rococo paintings and Swedish folk art to midcentury Scandinavian furniture and pottery.

Lilla Ego
The sparse interior, with its furniture that looks like it’s from IKEA, helps to emphasize the New Nordic food and the exciting wine list. The menu changes depending on whatever local ingredients are available. Whenever lamb is on the menu, I order it. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

Tennstopet
When I don’t have the time to cook, I go to Tennstopet. It’s across the street from where I live and serves hearty traditional food such as stekt fläsk med löksås—thick cuts of pork with onion gravy and potatoes. You can’t get more Swedish than that! —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

A hip crowd hangs out at this classic spot. Try the Toast Pelle Janzon, a huge piece of toast blanketed with beef carpaccio dressed with roe, crème fraîche, chopped onion, an egg yolk, and shredded horseradish. Sounds terrible, I know, but it’s heavenly. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

Gustaf Forsberg, who owns Erlands—Stockholm’s smallest, coolest cocktail bar—is a supernerd when it comes to spirits and will only work with top ingredients. The Erlands Cocktail—with bourbon and elderflower gin—is the best cocktail in the world. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

Sven-Harrys Konstmuseum
Located in Vasaparken, Sven-Harrys rolls out new exhibitions every few months. The building is striking and modern, but the top floor is a throwback: a replica of the museum founder’s 18th-century manor house complete with his personal art collection. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

Yuc! Taquería
This mellow, playful taquería has a great vibe, cool art, and attracts a fun-loving crowd. Rather than sit in the dining area, I like to head for the bar, where it’s a bit livelier. The playlist is off the hook—and so are the margaritas. —Christopher BastinThis appeared in the November/December 2016 issue.

The Glass House
There’s no better place in Hobart for a sundowner than this bar and restaurant, situated on the pier where the ferry to the Museum of Old and New Art departs. Its menu is filled with Asian-inflected dishes such as Korean fried chicken and pork belly bao.

Wineglass Bay
One of the star attractions of the savagely beautiful Freycinet Peninsula is this horseshoe-shaped beach with electric-blue waters. A hike (don’t be fooled by the Australian proclivity to refer to such excursions as “walks”) down to the sand brings you up close with wild wallabies and kangaroos, some of them so habituated to humans that they’ll nose up demanding picnic scraps.
