Quail, Vandaag

A few weeks back, we wrote about our passion for Swedish sweets; now it's time to reveal our love of Vandaag, not the first restaurant in the city to update Northern European tastes using locally sourced products, but probably the most popular. We stopped in for a big lunch, including grilled quail, romaine and herring, pickled sausages, the world's greatest bread basket, hete bliksem, and Dansk Viking Blood, a kind of mead. Mead! Any minute we expected Grendel's mom to come charging in, or Beowulf to thurst his sword into our seaweed foccacia.

I am currently a college student taking Major English Texts and we just finished reading Beowulf, so excited to see it mentioned in your post!

@HW: jealous of your friends; wish we'd known you then.

@Ada: Beowulf is a great poem. Hope you're enjoying it.
