Östarps Gästis: "Best ever egg cake!" Sjöbo Restaurant Tip by Sjalen

This is in fact yet another inn, and because it is off the main road out in the countryside it is not half as packed as it would otherwise be, although booking is definately advisable if you visit in July since this classical place can be found at Kulturens Östarp open air museum so that is the reason people flock here in good weather. It is also a fabulous place, and in my quest for Scania's best local egg cake with gammon rashers, this is so far the best I have found (third picture). On top of that, the interior is old fashioned and cosy as the owners thankfully restored it completely after a 1950s fire. The friendly waiting staff are dressed in local Scanian dresses and the place ooozes tranquility and a feeling that YOU as the guest are the important thing here. Dessert was a scrumptuous rhubarb crumble thing when I visited and well, the whole experience is as close to a food orgasm as you get in Sweden. One of those complete meals :) As you can see from the fourth picture, I'm not the only one in this world who thinks so. Children are welcome and it is the sort of place where they usually behave since people who come here want to experience culture. There is a special menu for them which is also of high quality and if they want to leave in advance, they cannot get run over outside as all there is is countryside (pic 5) and an ice cream kiosk.

Favorite Dish: Egg cake :)))
