Mathias Dahlgren Matsalen – natural
Chef Patron Mathias Dahlgren is one of the best chefs in Sweden since many years. He comes from the northern parts of Sweden, from Umeå, and won the Bocuse d’Or 1997. Today Mathias Dahlgren has two restaurants – Matsalen and Matbaren.
Mathias Dahlgren's passion for the Swedish cuisine is never to be mistaken and his reliance on the best ingredients that mostly are local most often results in some of the best Nordic cuisine. The chef's attention to light and fresh natural flavours is a dream for your senses and completely different compared to many other traditional cuisines, like the French. Mathias Dahlgren's creative side comes out in full bloom at his Matsalen and you never know what is coming next when you are having his tasting menu.
The menu is changed on a seasonal basis, but you can expect to have the signature Scandinavian Sashimi early during dinner. It is delicious and will hopefully always stay on the meny in one or another form. Depending on the season another typical dish can be the brown crab from the West coast of Sweden (Bohuslän) with broth on king crab. The genuine Swedish flavours are constant during your dinner and it is a new experience for anyone who is not used to the refined pure texture and taste.
Mathias Dahlgren Matsalen is one of our Nordic favourites and can easily be a serious competitor to any restaurant in the world when it comes to pure natural flavours and eco awareness that is fantastic for the taste buds. The restaurant continues to develop, but is already today one of the best. The natural cuisine is here to stay.
