Råkultur, Kungstensgatan 2, Stockholm
Råkultur is/was one of the more hyped restaurants for sushi/Japanese food in Stockholm. They have had some great reviews, here is one not so great.
This was the main sashimi plate. The fish was fresh with about 5 different types. No tuna however, this was a bit strange. What I was annoyed with was that about 1/3 of this plate (that costs a small fortune – 200 SEK or £20) is covered by what I really do not consider being that tasty. Beans, water radish and flowers (sic!). I really think that this should be small separate side dishes or just plain garment – not an essential part of the meal. They also has some black sesame paste (middle top) that covered half of the white fish. I really disliked the composition.
For about 1/4 of the price of the sashimi but almost the same size, this was Råkultur’s version of a bibimbap. Or rice topped with random Asian stuff that they call it. You could not mix it, some bits were warm and some bits were cold. The individual flavours were ok but I did not understand the dish.
For me, Råkultur was a real disappointment. Just like everything else in Stockholm, this place will be/was popular for a year and then die out. They also played some sort of uptempo lounge music that annoyed me, the sound would have been more appopriate for a hotel bar. Pointless place and sad food.
