Don’t miss the opportunity to experience this very Swedish food tradition. Fat Tuesday was traditionally the last opportunity to stuff yourself before the lent and in Sweden a tradition developed of eating buns, called "fastlagsbullar" or ”semla”. The semla is usually made up of a cardemom bun filled with sugary almond paste and topped whipped cream. Some also like to soak it in warm milk.
You can find these buns in most pastryshops in Stockholm but Vete-katten in the city center is a hot tip for an authentic and very tasty experience. Here, thousands upon thousands of semlas are sold during the course of the week.
