Nordic Street food – Pulled chuck

Street Food is hot right now, and above all there is talk about Nordic Street Food. That means Nordic food that you can buy “on the town” out of  a food truck or a “hole in the wall”. Fast food with Nordic roots and finesse.

I love the concept and I´m happy that Nordic food are about to get out there on the street among kebabs, burgers, fallaffels, pizza slices and sausages with seasonings from all around the world. Nothing wrong with that kind of street food, but think what street food traditional Swedish food with a twist can be. We have a great traditional cuisine, that would make great street food and that I´m sure of, would compeet with any traditional burger or kebab any day.

Fresh, locally produced and very tasty!
