Restaurant Tegelbacken is a new and unexpected addition to Stockholm’s high-class restaurant scene. In contrast to the many trendy, stripped-down Scandinavian eateries, Tegelbacken is colourful and vibrant. The man behind the launch of the restaurant is Markus Aujalay, known to many from having been part of the jury on the popular TV show Masterchef Sweden, who has also prepared the menu for the Nobel prize gala dinner. “I wanted to open a restaurant in Stockholm with an international touch,” he says. “Inspired by the Mediterranean kitchen, we have well-cooked food, timeless interiors and excellent service.”
