The best restaurants in Stockholm for chicken and other fowl
Updated 13 Aug 2018
Chicken joints have become a hot addition to the Stockholm restaurant scene, covering the spectrum from comfort food to slightly more healthy options. Crispy American chicken wings, or hot wings, vie with roast Swedish corn-fed chicken, confit duck and feathered streetfood from all over the world. Why not try spicy wings from the other side of the Atlantic, or a whole rotisserie-grilled chicken? This guide shows you the way to Stockholm's best chicken restaurants, covering joints that serve only chicken dishes as well those that happen to have a couple of awesome poultry dishes on their menus.
An ambitious fastfood concept from restaurateur Marco Baudone. You'll find rotisserie-grilled farm-reared chicken served in several different ways - as "pulled chicken" in a wrap, for example, or on the Catalan bread pan de cristal, with accompaniments. There are branches in Teatern and on Kungsgatan.
Innovative chicken dishes and urban cocktails
Stockholm's first real chicken concept restaurant is inspired by Miami and New York and you'll find it among the many restaurants on Jakobsgatan, in the heart of town. Innovative chicken dishes are the focus, some cooked in a rotisserie and all made using chickens from organic Swedish farms. Their goal is to create the perfect evening destination, which includes an urban cocktail bar.
- Yellow, Jakobsbergsgatan 23a, Norrmalm/City
This centrally-located restaurant is dedicated to serving up our feathered friends in the form of innovative street food from all over the world, and the birds they use are from small-scale poultry farmers with higher welfare standards. Try everything from hot wings to duck burgers and organic foie gras, combined with a cocktail should the mood take you.
- Bird, Regeringsgatan 89, Norrmalm/City
As the name suggests, duck and crab are the stars of the show at this intimate little restaurant in Vasastan/Östermalm. Soak up the cosy atmosphere over a little roast duck, or why not try a "Duck Maker Toast" with fries and brioche, rounded off with dessert.
- Duck & Crab, Rådmansgatan 23, Östermalm/Vasastan

Everything you need for a turkey dinner
If you need to stock up on a turkey and accompaniments, this is the place to come. As well as fresh turkeys sold over the counter, they also sell salads and ready meals to take home. Catering is another option.
