Chutney is a vegetarian/ vegan friendly restaurant located in the hipster SoFo area in Södermalm, Stockholm. Very lucky to have my local Swedish friend, Marika show me around the hood. She recommended we eat and celebrate her birthday here! We also had lots to catch up having not seen each other for more than 10 years!
Entrance to Chutney – it’s Asian/ Middle Eastern inspired, very warm and cosy inside.
We had to order at the counter. There were 4 options on the board and Marika kindly translated the dishes for me.
After paying for our food, we were free to help ourselves to the salad buffet corner. I was quite impressed by the wide array of water – cucumber, apple, pomegranate, orange, so many to choose from!
I chose option 2, the Ethiopian balls made of tomato, zucchini, pepper, cauliflower, parsnip, chickpeas, and carrot, which were mixed with Berbere – a chilli spice blend from Ethiopia. It was delicious especially when soaked in the salad cream. I enjoyed the potato cubes on the side. Very satisfying meal!
Marika’s lunch – she ordered the Burritos that was filled with soy bits, carrot, oregano, mushrooms, turnip, parsnip, spinach, and basil with some yoghurt cream and rice.

Chutney also offers many delicious desserts – this mud cake does look amazing!
More vegan desserts – nom nom nom or rather the Swedish would say mums mums mums!
Marika says she loves to sit out here in summer to bask in the sun. With the long harsh winters in Sweden, it’s no surprise that the Swedes love Summer so much.
