I recommend this restaurant, not only for "Millenium" fans and Socialdemocrats (there is a statue of Tage Erlander, Prime Minister during 23 years and who was succeeded by Olof Palme, but also for everybody who wants to eat Swedish food.

Throughout the last decades these neighborhoods
transformed from a rather quiet residential area into
the birthplace of Swedish hipsterism and became
Sweden’s main hub for new fashion labels, independent
coffee shops and innovative gastropub concepts.
Despite their extreme transformation, SoFo (South of
