Välkommen to Tre Kronor where you will find some of the best Scandinavian home cooking in Chicago. Tre Kronor is a cozy and casual restaurant with Swedish and Norwegian memorabilia like Niklas Hjalmarsson’s Blackhawks jersey and mural of dancing elves covering the walls.
On a mission for a meatball sandwich I got the Norwegian Meatball sandwich served open-faced made with hot gravy on limpa toast a Swedish rye bread that has a sweet taste. The meatball sandwich can also be served cold with egg and tomato. You can get the delicious bread at the Swedish Bakery in Andersonville. For the side option you should order the house made pickled cucumbers. They are crunchy full of dill and have a sweat and sour tang of vinegar.
The special of the day was pølse a boiled sausage from Denmark served in a bun covered in mashed potatoes and topped off with crispy onions and served with a salad. It’s worth it to break your diet for this special.
The cinnamon roll has a nice citron flavor and is big enough to share. Tre Kronor also serves a great breakfast and dinner. If you want to continue the Scandinavian good times you can cross the street to The Sweden Shop a department store with housewares, clothing, and books from Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Finland.
