    As long as you have a bit more money, you can taste nordic life, especially Sweden, without actually going to that part of that world. :)

    Open sandwiches are impossible to eat without making the biggest mess, but they're great. The cakes are very good too. Cinnamon rolls lacking a good cinnamon kick... a bit insipid.

    Go for the meatballs. They come with your choice of salads, so try some different ones and see what you like. Just make sure you don't leave it too late: they sell out pretty quickly.

    Use the basement toilet. Stare at the vintage album covers of terrible '70s Swedish rock bands & try to out shit them. Then spend the rest of your life trying to replicate their ironic awesomeness
