Food in Piteå!


Heart shaped rice! We went to a Thai restaurant on our first night in Piteå, we could actually see it from our hotel window so it was perfect.



It was called Thai Garden. As you can see, it was not very busy but it was late on a Monday night so I’m just happy they were open at all. Very nice restaurant. There were a few other Thai places in the area. I don’t know why but there seems to be an abundance of Thai restaurants up in the far north of Sweden. In Kiruna we have a handful of Thai places and no Chinese, Japanese or Indian restaurants. It’s pretty much just Thai food or pizza in the north. Which is to say, I have come to like Thai quite a bit.



I picked this particular Thai restaurant over the others this time because they had a particularly large vegetarian menu and that makes us pretty happy.


I actually remembered to snap some pictures before we ate everything. Usually I forget until about half way through the meal that I even thought about taking pictures. I get pretty focused when I’m given food.


I also tried a restaurant in town called Nobo. It was very cute, with coffee and pastries if you’re looking to fika and a nice lunch menu that comes with a salad/pasta bar.


I found and bought a pear flavored biskvi here! It was pretty exciting and yet, no picture. We ate it. The end.

I really liked the staff here and would happily come back the next time I find myself in Piteå.

Piteå Stadshotel

pstadhus1Piteå Stadshotel was great! I would definitely stay there again.

I followed Phong to Piteå while he was there for a conference. We got there by bus from Luleå and the hotel was just down the street from the bus station, with a beautiful park on the other side of it, and the center of town across the street.


City view from our window!


The room was lovely and modern. Very clean and our window looked right out at the center of town. The staff was extremely nice and unlike some hotels with a 10am or 11am checkout, this one had a 12pm checkout.


Standard fantastic swedish breakfast buffet included! No waffles but there were blueberry juice shots.


Very pretty old building with a fancy restaurant of its own. I really liked this hotel. It was a great start to a first visit to Piteå.
