duck surprise

- If you don't like duck, you're rather stuck
.
In all fairness, Östermalms Saluhall provides more delicatessen
than you and I could think of. Including duck, of course,
at B Andersson's. With or without orange or cherry.
Twenty stalls, restaurants and cafes - this food hall
by the Östermalm Square is an institution.
.
- Duck with Orange; duck with cherries; duck surprise
- What's duck surprise?
- Er... that's duck without oranges or cherries


(quotes from Fawlty Towers by John Cleese and Connie Booth, 1975)
.
Anka, gås, tjäder, orre, fasan, kalkon, majskyckling, duva, ripa och and hör självklart till kostcirkeln hos Fågel & Viltspecialisten B Anderssons eftr

It looks quite nice. Is it a mix of self-serve and sit-down-and-be-served? Do you go there often? If so, what do you get?

Where's the duck? I can see a moose (elk) and - yes! - the duck is the guy in red?! No, maybe not.

Anyways, Östermalmshallen has been an asset for Stockholm’s many lovers of good food since 1888. I would say it's not very "sit-down-and-be-served", but you'll get decent lunches and coffies in the market place. It used to house a very good Indian restaurant on first floor but it's closed nowadays I think.

It is nice. I used to be a frequent veggie-luncher here ages ago.

It looks like a nice place to shop for food. Do they give provide little pieces of food for tasting?

I saw the photo of your house. It is a BIG house!!

Providing samples for tasting shouldn't be any problem. These are twenty different stalls run by different people but I imagine there's a bit of a common policy among them.
