As you might suspect from the name, this is a place where Sweden and Asia get themselves all mixed up. The result works both visually and food-wise, and makes for a sophisticated watering hole, a prime place for young Swedes to "see and be seen" near Stureplan. Those on diets (or who enjoy tapas-style dining) will be happy to hear that dishes are served as half portions, and the sashimi bar even charges by the piece. We're particularly fond of the lobster taco with pineapple and garden cress, just one example of the kitchen's creative fusions. The warm red and orange interiors by Swedish designer Thomas Sandell make for a distinctly more Asian look than the usual go-to white of chic restaurants.

Miss Voon is part of the so-called F12 group, headed by Melker Andersson, the prolific chef and restaurant entrepreneur who many thought had given up on Stockholm after a string of high-profile extortion and arson attacks against his restaurants. F12 (named after Andersson's first restaurant, Fredsgatan 12) sold four of its restaurants in August of 2014, but he seems to be holding on to Miss Voon. For good reason.
