How appropriate that I'm blogging about Swedish food today as I just watched Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations episode on Sweden. Unfortunately I followed it up with Nigella Lawson's Feasts and she was doing her chocolate temptations and boy, did I feel like eating something chocolately straight away. Aargh! Not a great idea after midnight to start craving for chocolate.
This little known place which has been overshadowed by Ikea isn't a place I usually go all the time as parking is virtually impossible around Damansara Uptown during weekdays unless you break the rules by double or triple parking. However the MBPJ officers are always vigilant around the area issuing clamps and fines. You do have the option of parking inside the Uptown offices but I tend to avoid their carpark as it's kinda dark since the visitor parking is at the lowest level.
This place serves pizza, pasta and Swedish specialties in a simple cafe environment. Really no frills type of place so don't expect much in terms of decor. I tend to prefer their Swedish meatballs (you can either order beef or chicken -RM13.80) here as they taste very home made. Another plus point is they serve it with mash versus boiled potatoes which I reckon is a better fit with meatballs especially with lots of sauce.
Although I've not tried many other choices as it's always been just meatballs for me, they also serve lots of fish dishes but don't worry, there's no exploding fermented herrings here. Splashie Boy had the conventional Kalops (RM13.80), Swedish beef stew with potatoes, carrots and onions. Not sure what's the Swedish element in it as it tasted just like an ordinary comforting beef stew with a generous portion of tender beef cubes.
If you strike lucky with a parking space, drop by this place for a comforting meal. If not, try them during the weekends when parking is not as hectic. And don't worry, they don't play any ABBA music which you will feel like axing just like what Anthony Bourdain did in No Reservations.
