Is it possible that German wines and food is becoming a thing in Stockholm? First we had Bar Central and then E&G. Now we’d like to recommend Sekt which serves a tasty modern south west-German cuisine in a somewhat brutal modern bistro Berlin feeling in central Stockholm. The menu is both a la carte and set menus.

Vinverket, located in northern Vasastan in central Stockholm, is more of a wine bar than a restaurant, and it feels like coming home to friends. Going down the stairs a few steps, and you'll find a wine cooler reaching from floor to ceiling, and a solid kitchen table serving both as bar and workplace. Walk a few more meters and sit down by the small tables, perfect for a tête a tête. You will be served smaller dishes, influenced by the Mediterranean cuisine.

Farang takes guests on a journey to Southeast Asian cuisines. The restaurant is located in an old factory hall and the rustic backdrop contrasts with the warm atmosphere.
