The restaurant name which literally means "five small houses" has been in business since 1969, serving classic Swedish food with a French twist.
The 5 basement houses are connected via exposed bricks passageways, with decors that reminiscent the 17th century.
Assorted Herrings and Fish: Vendace bleak roe, herring, Baltic herring, marinated salmon, smoked salmon, mackerel and marinated elk (SEK 270). Each items were meticulously handcrafted, making it hard not to scoop everything up in one bite!
Two Kinds of Salmon (SEK 210) - They say good things come in pairs, and this is certainly the case at Fem Sma Hus. Each salmon were paired with compatible other half, be it the velvety smooth tartar or the shrimp with horseradish mix.
Seared Halibut with Shrimps (SEK 310) - The seared halibut pale against its peers, as it was a tad overcooked and a little too plain. Shrimps, horseradish, melted butter and spinach were served alongside.
Vegetable Tagliatelle (SEK 180) - The towering homemade tagliatelle were infused with hearty greens, accompanied by some rocket salad and walnuts. This may be a simple affair, but the flavors were rich and dense.
Roast Lamb Rumps (SEK 320) - The succulent lamb rumps were perfectly cooked, drizzled with rosemary sauce and sided by some vegetables and a potato cake.
Fillet of Reindeer with Port Wine Sauce (SEK 325) - The lingonberries were as red as rubies, while the reindeer fillets were as tender as midnight moon. Reindeer is a very popular meat amongst Scandinavians, especially during the winter months. Its flavors are best retained when served rare or medium rare.
Raspberry Soup with Lime Parfait (SEK 110) - The all natural raspberry was assertive, creamy and most importantly, not too sweet.
Rhubarb and Strawberry Pie (SEK 125) - If you are not in the mood for soup, the restaurant also doubles as a good place to enjoy quality pies. To top it off, a scoop of maple syrup ice cream was added - helping to deliver another big smile on my face.
