Austin Foodworks located between Odenplan and Norrtull somehow feels like a hipster, (male?…but with many female guest) typ of place. The restaurant has not only put a lot of research into the food but also the interior feels genuine with a ”hip” type of  construction lamps, roasted plate and Mason Jars lamps adorn the ceilings, worn wood, old oil cans from post-apocalyptic petrol station in Texas, lots of bourbon and rye decorates liquor shelf.

Austin Food Works is open both for lunch and dinner (altough me personally would prefer dinner). Even though it feels like a ”meaty” type of place, you will also find vegetarian dishes on the menu. On top of the brisk plate we also tried the soft tacos, the the fries with melted cheese which were all very tasty. It feels real, but I’m not sure the big ”audience” have heard about the place yet (?).

Prices are very resonable and if you don’t feel like eating – the choice of draft beers in the bar is impressive. When we arrived at the restaurant, we found Melker Andersson enjoying the AFW chicken at a isolated table!
