When it comes to sushi, Stockholm has a ton of really good restaurants that serve up the freshest fish and shellfish dishes. Even my neighborhood sushi joint, with its four tables, serves up succulent salmon (lax) sushi that just melts in your mouth.
RAW is a trendy corner sushi cafe in the Vasastan district that looks more like a French Bistro with dark furniture, light contemporary décor, and long lunch lines of people waiting to snag a coveted table. Clearly a popular lunch place.
I was instantly greeted with a bowl of warm, well-seasoned miso soup. My dish, the Kombi—which included three salmon sushi, three deep-fried organic prawns, and three maki pieces—was delicious.
So much so that I shamelessly ordered an extra lunch plate.
