Bjork Swedish Brasserie
Recently opened in the Porta Venezia area, Bjork Swedish Brasserie & Side Store is both a shop and brasserie offering a take-away service, where you can enjoy the flavours of traditional Swedish cuisine.
Bjork is very cosy, decorated in warm colours with pale wooden shelving and tables. As you walk in the door you are met by a huge counter laden with typical, fresh Swedish dishes : warm smoked salmon or gravlax; marinated herrings with onions or with mustard sauce, dill or juniper and gin; Swedish meatballs; an assortment of Smorrebrod; fresh open sandwiches on black bread complete with butter, salmon, prawns, roast beef or the vegetarian option with beetroot, honey, potato, caper flowers and bean shoots. There is also a wide selection of Swedish cheeses and traditional Swedish chutneys as well as packaged products, fresh bread and other oven-baked goods. Make sure you try one of the many Scandinavian beers on offer as well as cider and juices such as Saxhyttegabbeu Blabar, made from hand-picked wild redcurrants.
Not only can you buy different products at Bjork Brasserie, but you can also lunch at the counter or book a characteristic Swedish dinner - delicate yet delicious. Otherwise, why not pop in for an afternoon cup of coffee and a cinnamon or chocolate pastry.
Bjork is open Mondays 18.00 until 24.00 and Tuesdays to Saturdays 12 until 24.00.
