VEGAN BRUNCH AT RADISSON BLU ROYAL PARK IN STOCKHOLM
I and a friend of mine recently visited the plant-based/vegan brunch at the Radisson Blu Hotel located in Solna, near Hagaparken. We had heard about it through social media and were very eager to try it. It was 395 SEK and our expectations were quite high since we had heard so much about it.
When we arrived we were told that there was no reservation in our name, even though I had called them several weeks prior and made a reservation. There was a table available for us though, so there was not really an issue.
The food was somewhat innovative, but honestly nothing spectacular. There were several dishes that felt sloppy and not well prepared. For example, there was a fried tofu which was so hard that I was afraid I would break a tooth or something. The pancakes were also super hard and my friend had a hard time even trying to cut a piece of them.
Was it worth the money? The short answer is no. I would rather make my own brunch at home and invite all my friends, to be honest. However, there were several dishes that tasted great and that we liked. For example, they had a baked sweet potato with some kind of avocado cream on top that was excellent. What really surprised me was that they did not have organic or fairtrade tea, which usually is a given. All in all, I would probably not go back and have brunch here again. It was exciting to finally try this plant-based brunch, but I did not live up to our expectations.
