A little taste of Home.

Sweden, like more other European countries,  has a lot of different restaurants which offer different types of European Cuisine!  But what about food from other continents?

I get a quite a lot of emails asking me about how to manage food in Sweden. Are there places where we can get Indian food? African spices? Asian flavours? And this is something that I wanted to know before I came here as well.

If you’re new here in Stockholm, or if you’re just a total foodie, or if you miss the taste of food from your home land, this post is for you!

Where Can I find

Indian Food:


To get Indian groceries, there are some shops in Stockholm. Himalaya Livs, Taj Mahal Livs, Kista Grossen are some of the really good Indian oriented stores, where you get Indian spices, sweets, basmati rice easy to make rotis,  and of course, Maggi noodles 😀

There are some Indian restaurants as well – Holy Cow, Shanthi, Punjabi Masala grill, Indian Kushbu etc. Click here to check out more Indian restaurants in Stockholm.
