Upscale Skagen Toast From Niklas Ekstedt

One of the dishes you must eat in your lifetime is Skagen toast.

Famous all around Sweden, I do not care whether you say it is for tourists or locals alike, I love it and I have to have it every single time I visit Scandinavia.

For an upscale version, you can not go pass Hillenberg Restaurant but chef Niklas Ekstedt.

I love his cooking shows, his strong but friendly personality and LOVE the Skagen Toast in all its glory.

The restaurant is conveniently located next to the famous food hall, östermalm hall but why not enjoy Hillenberg when the service is  great and atmosphere relaxing without having to fight off other foodies? I prefer to think I am posh and dine in Hillenberg.

Here is the latest recipe from Michelle’s Chefs Collective – Skagen Toast by Chef Niklas Ekstedt’s Hillenberg Restaurant
