Food is good, but to me the restaurant is a little too over-hyped. I mean second best rated restaurant in whole Stockholm? - that can also be a burden, means you go there full of high expectations which eventually are difficult to be fulfilled. At the end it's "just" a sausage in a bread, and not a cheap one. Presentation and quality is good, the tapas tasted average to me (the olives were nothing special, and neither was the coleslaw). Didn't regret eating there and service was very friendly - but 50 Eur for two hotdogs, an (overpriced) salad w/ cheese and salami and two beers is still a lot!
Important for me to mention that this is my personal opinion: one star goes away due to the high expectations I had which weren't fully met, and another one for the average tapas and the expensive salad - makes 3 stars!
General perception might be - and is obviously - different ...

The host said I was having "just a hot dog and salad" - that just does not do him any justice whatsoever. Food is just incredible and clearly fresh and made on premises. This place should be number 1 in Stockholm.
Some homemade jams were cooking and wafting through the place while I was eating which smelled amazing.

This is a very small pavement level refuge in busy Gamla Stan right near the palace

The selection of food is small but all home made and welcome.

Would you believe it you can have beer brewed by a friend of the proprietor in his garage in Stockholm .

Toilet . " If we had a toilet we would not have room for a kitchen. "

After a delayed flight and an hour walking around the old town of Stockholm I needed feeding and hydrating when thankfully I stumbled across the hairy pig.

We were lucky to have a table
outside on a rather warm summers evening.

I actually can't fault a thing about this place. Location, food (excellent sides and Cumberland sausage), size (I always think potion size I.e not too big is important), customer service and value for money all excellent.

This is a new restaurant/deli and hopefully one I can return to on my next trip to Stockholm.
