Östermalm Food Hall in Stockholm, Sweden

For a look at how Swedes shopped and ate back in the gilded age, or for a quick bite of lunch, check out the Östermalm Food Hall.

The hall served as the supermarket for the city back at the end of the 1800s, with farmers and fishermen bringing in their fresh wares every day.

These days, the hall is a lot fancier.

For the inside scoop we met with Johan, from the shop and restaurant Lisa Elmqvist.

Lisa began selling seafood here nearly one hundred years ago, and for four generations her family has continued.

Johan gave us a fresh fish tour and an idea of the logistics behind the scenes.

After browsing the offerings, he suggested that we try a few, and didn’t have to ask twice.

Toast Skagen with bleak roe at Lisa Elmqvist in Stockholm, Sweden, which is high on the list of the best things we have ever put in our mouths.

We started with a sample their signature dish, toast skagen with bleak roe -- high on the list of the best things we have ever put in our mouths.

Wow, this combination of shrimp, dill, and caviar, well, let’s just say we see why the King of Sweden is a frequent customer.

We followed up with salmon and soup, which were certainly none too shabby themselves, but the shrimp on the toasted bread had spoiled us.

We may never be the same. It will haunt our dreams.

OK, OK, so that’s a little over the top, but seriously… royally good.
