Why locals love it
While there’s no shortage of dumpling restaurants scattered around Stockholm, the Beijing8 “slow fast food” chain does things a bit differently. Instead of dishing up greasy (albeit tasty) Chinese fare in kitschy surrounds, these guys are concerned with sustainability, pure ingredients and, in true Scandinavian style, sleek design.
Why you should visit it
If you’re on a budget and craving something more palatable than lacklustre falafel and limp fries, Beijing8 will satisfy your belly, wallet and conscience. Not in the area? Not to worry – they have another restaurant at Grev Turegatan 1, and another at Kungsgatan 25.
The duck and ginger dumplings are divine.
