Vegan | They opened in 2017 and is Stockholm (and Sweden's) first vegan fast food chain. And it was about time. They have two spots in town and we visited them this time in Hötorgshallen. Taku-Taku delivers slow cooked streetfood inspired from all around the world. They won the award for "Fast casual of the year" at the fast food awards 2018 and is Veggietown's favorite street food in town!
The menu is vibrant and introduces different flavours from different world kitchens such a the Indian, Mexican and Vietnamese. You can either choose a dish from the food lab where the kitchen experiments with different main dishes of the week. I had a caesar salad with a creamy dressing, chickpeas, sesame seed covered avocado and smoked tofu. The salad was a fun twist of a caesar salad, beautiful to look at and I really enjoyed how the smoky tofu gave the salad a more distinct character. You can also pick one small street food dish for 40 SEK or three for 100 SEK with 4 different flavours you could have in either a Bhangra taco (corn or wheat), a Vietnamese yum bun or a ssäm (salad wrap). The excellent prepared yum bun with the Bulgogi filling with tofu, mushrooms & sesame oil had genuin Asian flavours and was just mouth watering. Their home made sauces that we sprinkled on top of our dishes also rocked! The black bean sauce really impressed us with its distinctive taste, creaminess and lovely sourness from the vinegar. The menu also offers temple bowls, sandwiches, juices & ice creams. They make all of their sauces, spices and marinades by themselves and are also available for purchase.
