    Okey, what you are looking for? Probably the best know Swedish traditional is Smörgåsbord (sandwichtable is a free translation like "a collection of different sorts of things"). The other is Surströmming but that is so heavy stuff that I can't recommend that. There are a lot of restaurants serving SGB and everything depends of your budget. Opera Kellaren is one of those.

    Here are some other proposals:

    'Opera Kellaren is one of those'
    - But when they actually have an opera on, it's packed! No place to stand, let alone sitting.

    Typical Swedish food is for example meatballs. You can eat them on everything from the less luxurious department store IKEA (they are known for their meatballs) to luxury restaurants like "Slingerbulten" (address: Stora Nygatan 24, Stockholm 111 27) . Of course there is more options than meatballs. The Swedish food is delicious. Another example is "Lux Stockholm" (http://www.luxstockholm.com/). It's a luxury restaurant with ecological, swedish gourmet food. If you just want to eat a sausage with ketchup can you buy it from an outdoor kitchen, it's also Swedish. Lastly everything depends on what price class you are looking for. Hope you'll find out something cozy that suits you. Have a nice stay!

    "Real" Swedish food can be either fine dining or street food of course. It also depends on the region. In Stockholm and along the East coast, Baltic herring with mashed potato is a common item both in restaurants and street food places. In the north, there is more game and highland fish, on the West coast it is North Sea type fish, shellfish etc. and in the south, things are influenced by the great agricultural plains.

    In Stockholm, you can eat elk and reindeer at Glenfiddich Warehouse 68 in Västerlånggatan in the Old Town (I thought it had renamed recently but it still has its old name in the homepage). Not that cheap though, since Old Town is touristy and the food is high quality, but cheaper than fine dining (and more food). You can also eat on board the steam ships which often have "ångbåtsbiff" and other very Swedish things on their menus. Apart from that, Östermalmshallen food hall sells Swedish deli to take away or eat by the stalls. There are also tons of lunch restaurants and others. A rather price worthy one is Blå Dörren at Södermalmstorg by Slussen which also has a lot of Swedish microbrew beer (as does Glenfiddich).
