Taste a "Semla" on Fat Tuesday
A visit to one of Stockholm's cafes is recommended this time of year, especially on February 21. That's when Fat Tuesday falls this year, and in Sweden that means eating a "semla" or two. These popular buns, filled with whipped cream and almond paste, are being enjoyed in city cafes right now, preferably with a cup of Swedish coffee. Ask for a "semla" and try one yourself! Here are a few cafe suggestions.
