Indiska Hörnet and some words about lunch

Today’s lunch, vegetarian stew, take away from Indiska Hörnet.

Today I realized that I never write about lunch. I know that lunch habits differ depending on which country you live in, in Norway -for example- people eat sandwiches for lunch. In Sweden we always eat warm lunches, that means if you’re not in a hurry and just have to grab a sandwich. At school the children get warm meals as well, but not as unhealthy as in the UK as I’ve seen on Jamie’s special programs about the British school food. At my office most of the people bring their own food and just heat it in the microwaves that we have. Most of the time I bring leftovers, but sometimes I go to one of the restaurants that are rather close to our office or I buy a shrimp salad for take away. There are 3 restaurants in the neighbourhood where you can have lunch for about 65 SEK. The food can sometimes be nice, but it’s often quite fat.

Today, as I’m working from home, I bought take away food from Indiska Hörnet which is a rather new Indian restaurant. I got a large vegetarian stew with naan bread and salad for only 49 SEK, which can be considered cheap especially as it was bought in one of the central parts of Gothenburg. I’m sorry to say that I’ve had better Indian lunches; it didn’t have enough spices but in the end I got full ( I got so much food that I could’t finish it) and I was quite satisfied. I’m sure that the food at Indiska Hörnet is better in the evenings, so I’ll give it another try someday for dinner.

And the follwing is what I’ll be having to my coffee later, a Hallon-wienerbröd bought at Hanis Hembageri in Saluhallen… But now I have to continue working….

    Hmm, Dagmar, the Indian food certainly looks good, too bad it didn’t taste as good. It would be interesting to see more of Swedish lunches, I sometimes prefer them to Norwegian ones because I love warm food.

    Anna Lisa, maybe I should make a special lunch post every friday with all the lunches that I’ve had during the week :-)

    I’m really used to warm food during lunches and so are my colleagues. I’ve never been to our Norwegian office, but the ones that have often complain about the sandwiches and that they are hungry when visiting the office in Oslo :-)

    Hi, pretty site, but the images aren’t very compressed at all, and take way too long on dialup, especially with so many images. Bummer, because I would have enjoyed reading your site.
    Good luck!

    Hi Anonymous,

    I didn’t think about compressing the photos more as I thought that “medium” was enough, but I’ll look over it during the weekend so that it will be easier for the ones that uses dialup. Thanks for writing about it. You can still read the site until then (if you turn of the images in the properties in you browser that is, but withouth the images it will be quite boring of course).
