The Spanish cuisine provides the perfect sharing experience and is, with its many delicacies and native wines, a popular choice for both small and big events. Tapas, pintxos and seafood all make for amazing sharing dishes and can certainly set the tone for a joyous dinner or work party. This is the vibe at Boqueria, a restaurant located in the Mood Shopping Centre in Stockholm.
“Boqueria is Spanish for ‘a place to meet’. We offer a fun and dynamic way of eating, where the food comes out as soon as it’s ready and we present each dish with a story of where it comes from,” says Boqueria’s CEO and owner Napolyon Sürer.
Visit the dining hall or ‘the square’
Boqueria consists of a dining hall with high chairs and cosy interior where guests can enjoy a delicious dinner in a chill environment, and ‘the square’ which is the ultimate venue for lunch, after-work drinks, and pre-drinks before a night full of adventures.
“The square offers the popular concept Pintxos – small Spanish dishes which are perfect for an exciting after work session or some mid-shopping nibbles. You can simply grab what you like the look of and continue to mingle with your friends and colleagues,” says Napolyon.
“We usually have two DJs, one in the dining hall and one in the square. At around 9pm, we turn up the volume in the square to provide the perfect mood for our guests. We want it to be a dynamic hub where people meet up for both food and drinks,” he continues.
Try something new, every time
The menu is extensive and changes often, which contributes to the dynamic vibe. It is adjusted depending on the season and the produce available. “We have themes throughout the year where we base our menu around a concept or ingredient. Soon we’ll have a seafood feast with 20 different kinds of seafood from all over Spain,” Napolyon says.
Suckling pig, squid, paella and music have been popular themes throughout the years, and it keeps the restaurant alive and thriving. “It’s exciting and you’ll have a different experience every time you visit Boqueria,” says Napolyon with a smile. “You will never get tired of visiting us.”
Boqueria has now extended, and you can visit the fun and innovative Spanish restaurant in both Gothenburg and Åre, where they provide the right mood for every occasion. And, of course, delicious Spanish food.
