This post is a part of the writing project called Stories from the West that I started with Christa. We’re both currently living on the west coasts (Christa in the US, me in Sweden), hence the name of the project. We both want to share our experiences living as immigrants, and every month we’ll write a post each with the same topic. The topic for this month is ‘food‘. Don’t forget to read Christa’s post, More Than ‘Just’ a Burger.
Of all things that Sweden is known for, food is definitely not it (except maybe the meatballs, thanks to IKEA). I’ve been living here for 10 months now and I still haven’t found a cuisine that makes me obsessed the way nasi padang and baked pasties do. Sure, I have a list of Swedish dishes that I particularly enjoy (especially those at julbord), but there’s another (longer) list of foods that I’m not sure about.
