It’s definitely that time of the year when there’s usually some sort of race going on every weekend. That time between late Summer and early Autumn when temperatures are cool and mild enough not to give you heat stroke while running.

And last week was the start of a popular race(actually, the world’s largest cross country race), Lidingöloppet, that spans a couple days with various categories including a children’s race.  The cross-country race takes runners through one of Stockholm’s most beautiful (and expensive) islands – Lidingö.

My total foodie friend Sandra suggested we check out a small joint (Jin & Peeters) along Kungsholms Strand that served only three items on their minimalist menu – Dumplings, Rotisserie Chicken, and Belgian Waffles. Intrigued by the odd pairing of dumplings and chicken, we tried it out and were pleasantly surprised. That chicken – sliced right off the spit – tasted as juicy and succulent as it looks.
