Beneath the grand Sergel Filmstaden cinema complex at Hötorget is a hidden food court. Entering through the glass doors on the southern end of the building one arrives at the escalators and descends.

It’s a hive for foreign exports, with exotic fruits, stores specializing in the goods of particular countries, and religious food stuffs. There are also many eateries and a customer-friendly Systembolaget. For the uninitiated, Systembolaget is the Swedish state liquor store chain. This particular link in the Systembolaget chain has kindly placed turncounters all over the shop, so one is free to walk around (as opposed to waiting by a single counter) whilst waiting to buy alcohol. For a snarky take on the Systembolaget experience, check out this review.

The best value discovery at the Hötorget Food Court? The Turkish snack bar offering ox tongue and eggplant hot sandwiches, of course.
