Lola A. Åkerström spotlights newly launched food court – Teatern – inside Ringen centrum.
Sweden’s celebrity chefs have joined forces to bring affordable world class food to the masses in Stockholm’s newest food scene called Teatern (The Theatre).
Teatern’s circular layout with its sloped stadium-style sitting and wide skylights is set inside Ringen, a shopping mall in Stockholm’s Skanstull neighborhood on Södermalm. As you continue in a circular loop, you pass kiosk after kiosk run by Sweden’s culinary stars.
Magnus Nilsson – Korvkiosk
Korvkiosk is run by Chef Magnus Nilsson of Michelin-starred Fäviken restaurant ranked number 25 of the best restaurants in the world.
Maximillian Lundin – The Plant — Food that works
Round Korvkiosk’s left corner lies Maximillian Lundin’s The Plant – Food that works, Sweden’s first 100% ecological vegan fast food joint.
“The Plant – Food that works” is a combination of the English word for plant and factory / plant. The Plant has a raw, industrial feel where machines are used to aid in the cooking process. In contrast, all its food is organic and vegan.
“I want to show that the plant-based food is both modern and really good. And besides, it works to drive a completely organic operation,” shares Maximillian Lundin about the concept behind his kiosk.
About half of its food is “raw food” which means its vegetables are not heated above 40 degrees.
Stefano Catenacci – Caos
Award-winning chef Stefano Catenacci’s concept is to serve high quality appetizer-style foods such as truffle ravioli with sage butter sauce, Salmon sashimi with radish and sesame roasted garlic, gotland pickled beets with goat cheese and Acacia honey dressing, and slow-cooked (at 63C) eggs with caramelized cream, mushrooms and crispy potatoes.
Daniel Roos – K-märkt patisserie & bageri
Across from Korvkiosk stands patisserie K-märkt run by Chef Daniel Roos behind the 2014 Nobel dinner dessert and Swedish Crown Princess Victoria’s wedding cake. K-märkt sells freshly baked bread and fresh pastries, sweets and cakes including breakfast on weekdays and open-faced sandwiches for lunch/dinner.
Adam Dahlberg & Albin Wessman – Raamen
The framework behind Raamen is inspired by traditional street food in Japan. The kiosk sells its own Stockholm version of Japanese noodles in broth with Swedish ingredients and flavours.
Marco Baudone – Mama
A rotisserie with slow roasted meat spinning for hours on a grilling spit, Mama’s serves various types of small slider sandwiches with different types of bread, fresh vegetables and dips. Its menu includes chicken, steak and Italian Porchetta.
Claes Grännsjö – Nook Market
Nook Market serves flavours inspired by Asian street food – from Vietnamese banh mi baguettes to Korean steam buns. You can also buy their own homemade kimchi and buns. Behind Nook Market is Chef Claes Grännsjö behind the fine dining Nook restaurant and Japanese bistro-style Shibumi.
Linus Ahlstedt & Mikael Gröndal – Snack Bar
Snack Bar serves kebabs, sandwiches and salads inspired by French street food from southern France. Its kebab is made from slow roasted, then fried, veal served with its own white blanche sauce.
