Kiruna - Eating
Souvas and renkok (reindeer stew) are two culinary experiences. Souvas is smoked reindeer meat which is fried and served on, for example, pizza, in wraps or on thin, flat, unleavened bread. You can also enjoy venison, grouse, char and cloudberries.
Serves specialities from the cuisine of Lappland. What about breast of grouse marinated in calvados with cranberry jelly or a cake made of frozen cloudberries with ”coffee-cheese” marinated in Kahlua, for example? Open all year round, but perhaps best in the summer with an area for open-air dining, midnight sun, mosquitoes and minigolf.
A classic which was mentioned in Ted Ström’s famous song Winter Saga (”and the drinking gets going in Mommas pub”). Rustic decor, cosy bar and a view over the vast expanse of the mountains and the mine.
