Last Wednesday I met Sonja and Cecilia, two childhood friends from Ösby Grind, at Warung, Långholmsgatan 3 in Stockholm. Anders, who earlier bartended at Morfar Ginko, works now in the bar at Warung and I saw him posting a new bar-menu (food) on Facebook earlier that day, and since I only had cake for dinner at my Grandma’s, it was perfect to enjoy a bit of food in the bar. Of the bar-menu I had the nuggets, try it! They were amazing! As go for the draught beer we enjoyed a blond lager from New Carnegie Brewery – Södermalm, Stockolm.
Warung has been opened for a year, but Anders just recently started working there and the idea is that he’ll take care of entertainment; DJ bookings and such. It’s exciting to have a new place for decent bar-hang in Hornstull to visit when I’m in town. The interior is wooden, bright and attractive.
The kitchen is Indonesian with a Swedish touch and in Indonesia a Warung constitutes a small family business, usually a little restaurant or a kiosk, where you can often by a bit of groceries, a simple lunch or grab a coffee. A warung is a familiar, every-day phenomenon in Indonesian culture, an essential part of daily life.
