An ultra-niche restaurant, Nalle serves traditional Swedish dishes (so-called husmanskost), but specializes in kroppkakor, a type of potato dumplings. The dish originates in the southern part of the country and comes in countless local recipes. Nalle's classic variant is filled with smoked pork and onions, though there's also a veggie option with mushrooms. Both are served with cream or clarified or browned butter or preserved uncooked lingonberries. It's exactly the kind of dish that would earn cult status if it were in an area with twitchier inhabitants anxiously awaiting the next cool thing. Thankfully, Nalle & Kroppkakan is in a suburb a few kilometers southwest of Södermalm so more dumplings for us!
