Food & Drink in Gothenburg

Gothenburgers and people from the West Coast jokingly use the epitaph ‘the front part of Sweden’ to describe where they are from and they are not exaggerating when talking about the fruits of the salty North Sea.

Seafood from Gothenburg, West Sweden

There is nothing to beat the mackerel, cod, turbot, hake and whiting caught here and skilfully prepared by some of the best fish restaurants in Sweden. Shrimp from Smögen is a true delicacy (especially in winter) as is the langoustine and the world-renowned oysters from Grebbestad. And when the autumn’s lobster premiere comes around, enthusiasts crowd the fishing boats on lobster ‘safaris’ around the islands and islets. Going inland, the food-inspired Västra Götaland region has fine examples of small-scale food producers such as Påverås’ award-winning cheeses, or Sivans, who sell their cheeses on the square in Vara, Mowitz chicken from Hjärtum, or Bitterna Lamb.
