Vegetarians beware. Literally translating to “The Animal," here you can dine on innovative two-week rotating meat-centric menus. Djuret, a cozy bistro tucked along one of Gamla stan’s cobblestone streets, offers one organic meat highlight every two weeks, when a brand-new sustainable menu is designed around every edible part of that animal.
Sample dishes include roast sirloin with marrow and cauliflower croquettes served with salt baked yellow and red beets, or tenderloin and braised wild garlic stuffed brisket served with white asparagus, butter-cooked garlic, and Hollandaise sauce.

Meat, Glorious Meat
Djuret means "the animal" in Swedish. This great little restaurant in Gamla Stan serves only one animal at a time and seeks to serve as much of it as possible. Even the decor is centered around meat, with meat hooks holding coats, meat grinders filling in as lamps, and prints showing various cuts of meat adorning the walls.
My food was delicious, from the freshly made bread to the brisket with potatoes and dill. I traveled solo in Stockholm and enjoyed being able to easily find a spot at the bar when I otherwise might have needed a reservation.
Not quite ready for the dinner to end, I was tempted to have dessert, but I ultimately decided against it since I'd already visited an amazing Swedish bakery earlier that day. If you visit Djuret and have dessert, let me know how it is!
