Eating out - one recommendation and one blah
One of my favorite places for lunch is Albert & Jacks, a deli/café which serves delicious sandwiches on brilliant bread (serrano & manchego is my favorite) and huge salads (do try the cold cuts salad, but the caesar is great, too!) and also wonderful buns and baked goods. Photo is of a cardamom-chocolate bun, and a great latte. Highly recommended. They have two locations in Stockholm so far and rumors say there'll be more...
On to some less good news. We finally tried out Jimmy's Steakhouse (Hammarby Sjöstad location) after eyeing it for actually a few years since it opened. Unfortunately, we found it overpriced and not spectacular at all. My roast lamb rack was fine, but Per's Mixed Grill was a pathetically small serving and he ended up eating half of mine, too. And for those prices... sorry. I don't think we'll be coming back.
