Hotspot: Rawbata

Rörstrandsgatan at St. Eriksplan has become a stroke for foodies to explore various flavours from different parts of the world. Rawbata is one of the newer addition to the neighbourhood, a Japanese restaurant using robataya grill.

Rawbata is a grillbar with their own take on the Japanese grill technique robatayaki, a technique built on using coal that lasts for long and develops tastes while cooking. You can find everything from vegetarian options to meat and seafood. We went for a mixed plate, containing lax, Hamachi, mussels and scampi on pokchoy. It didn’t take long before we noticed that the fresh produce was in focus at this resultant, amazing flavours and grilled to their perfection.

What we weren’t prepared for was the dessert. Passionfruit cheesecake, a recommendation from the staff; they said we wouldn’t regret it. Our respond? My friend wanted to marry the cheesecake and I would easily say yes to at least five more. We were highly impress by the quality of the fluffy cheesecake combined with its passionfruit tastes, it took the experience to a new level. It was noticeable that an award winning pastry cook is behind this gem.

It didn’t stop there, the staff deserve a beautiful acknowledgment, congrats to Rawbata for hiring a great crowd of service minded staff members. We were treated with so much energy throughout the evening. It made a deep impression on us, and we we’re already highly impress by the food. The restaurant is run by Nino Armoni, owner of Persian restaurant chain Tehran Grill and Levinsky’s Burger, together with pastry chef Gustaf Mabrouk.

Last but not least, Rawbata has succeeded in decor and ambiance. The room is bright, fresh and well thought out with a couple of different areas in the form of a restaurant section, chef's table and a chambre separée. The boards can be separated orput together into a single long table depending on how many people are in the company. Because the weather was so nice we were sitting outdoors, the atmosphere at Rörstrandsgatan is super cozy this time of the year.
