How 2 – Dine with friends – Oaxen Slip (Stockholm)


Oaxen has recently moved to Stockholm, It’s a 2in1 – Fine dining (Krogen) and Gastro brasserie called (Slip’en) – We visited Slipen.

We arrive early for 7PM dinner.. I have high expectations .. Bloggers and papers alike have praised Oaxen since opening May this year.
Already on arrival the house bustling with people.. the ambiance is good and we are in for a treat:

Oaxen Krog & Slip
The other direction

Jesper is maybe starting to feel the hardship of vacationing?

Chopped egg with lumpfish roe, Dijon mustard, sour cream & tarragon with flat bread
Roasted ox marrow with Oaxen bacon, parsley & lemon
Deep-fried cod with tartar mayonnaise
Our table – service is fast in a good way
Tartar of topside with Dijon mayonnaise, sour cream & sourdough croutons – A must try
Oaxen smoked prawn with aioli – House special?
Deep-fried crab cakes with sesame, coriander, bean curd & fennel
French fries – really, really, really good ones
Horseradish pickled vegetables

A room full of happy people? I think so.
There’s not so much to say, Oaxen get my strongest recommendation, not just for foodies, but for every adult of any kind. Prices are very reasonable on the food – (Wine is reasonable for Sweden)
