Hg2 : The Hedonist

Umami

With sushi making its name as the most popular ‘novelty’ food in Stockholm, there is plenty of choice in terms of where to eat it. Umami, which takes its name from the elusive third flavour in the trio that includes ‘hot’ and ‘sour’, has branched out within this theme.

The simple recipes combining all three food types result in clean-tasting dishes. Sushi is an option, but it is worth sampling the seared tuna or hot and sour Korean cabbage salad if you’re feeling brave. The interior is very neat; presentation of everything from food to tableware is immaculate, and menus and even the bill come wrapped in origami envelopes.

The chilled background beat and dark-brown wood contrasting with pink neon light makes this perfect for an early drink if the food isn’t up your street – cocktails are helpfully divided into pre- and post-dinner sections. Otherwise go to Umami for a ‘clean’ Japanese-style supper and brush up on your chopstick skills as there isn’t an alternative.
