Black Books, The Mighty Boosh, Doctor Who and BBCs Sherlock

Name some spots in Gothenburg that are good for a Tinder date.

I'd try to have a picnic somewhere with a view maybe Ramberget or Masthuggsberget, a beer on Andra Långgatan is also a great alternative

Who’s your hero and where in Gothenburg would you take them out for a serious hang?

I'd like to take my grandma (corny, I know, but true) and go to museums, expensive shops like Marimekko and then eat at a Greek restaurant and talk forever.

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

Mainly from thrift shops around the town, I sometimes redo things I thrift to make them even better

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

City centre at rushing hours, it's hell on earth

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

I love to picnic but somehow I never quite get around to it, I'd like to blame the weather but that's not really true

What’s the most decadent / extreme dish you ever ate in Gothenburg and where did you get it?

I ate a seven course meal at Thörnströms Kök which has a Michelin Star, it was amazing - both in taste and price

Cavernetta del Galeone on Eklandagatan

Thörnströms kök served a ceven course meal with local ingredients and we paid around 1700 sek per person

Where can you get the best cocktail in Gothenburg? Which one do you like?

I'm not a cocktail-person, but a beer person. I like Öltullen which has a few places around the city. They've got different beers on tap and many different ones to choose from.

Where would you take your partner in Gothenburg if you wanted to really pamper them?

Eat a shrimp sandwich at Heaven 23 looking out on the city.

Djungevrål - a really salty and sour liquorice and Ahlgrens bilar which is a kind of marshmallowy candy

Avenyn at daytime - it's crowded, expensive and boring.

What’s the one place you think is underrated in Gothenburg?

Frölunda Torg, an indoor mall with everything you need and then some.

What are the Gothenburg spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

Haga - a beautiful street with nice cafés and Liseberg is an experience in its self.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Gothenburg. How do you spend it?

I'd spend it with friends, probably hanging out on an island in the archipelago, drinking some good beer and talking until the stars come out.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

London, because it always surprises me with something new and exciting.
