  1. Wow, I visited the Sweden House in Ft.Lauderdale as a kid- I had forgotten this restaurant completely. What a blast to the brain! I only remember that the food was all really heavy, swimming in sauces, thick gravies and dressings- I DO remember having carrots on my plate, and finding out at the table that they were glazed with some butter-ish substance that had soaked thoroughly into the too-soft carrot chunks- I was so disappointed, it was just vile. My sister ate bowls of mashed potatoes there and seemed happy, I suppose. She only ate white food at the time, so this must have been in the very early 70’s.

  2. i’m not familiar with swedish cooking at all, yet we have many swedish tourists in crete, so i wonder if people here cater for their likes

    i cant imagine what i might find in a swedish restaurant, apart from open sandwiches…

  3. Probably the Swedes are seeking Greek food rather than what they would normally eat at home, no, Maria? 🙂 But now that you’ve enjoyed the foods of France, perhaps next stop will be Sweden . . .!

  4. Ha ha, postcardy, yes! ‘House of Flame’ with a bit of hand-sewn embroidery on the side just to be sure to cover all bases . .
