Karingon is an island off an island off an empty bit of Sweden which is, anyway, a pretty empty country.
That you might have to wait for a table at Peterson’s Krog proves how good the food is and the view over the water is sensational too. The menu is as you would expect in Sweden; fish soup, fish of the day, prawns on toast, prawns on rye bread, herrings on toast, cured salmon on toast and perhaps some bit of a cow, given they rear beef on these islands too.
It’s simple and delicious. The waiters, all blond, all gorgeous, translate the daily blackboard in lovely singsong versions of English.
Definitely not a place for vegetarians though.
