Västsvenska Turistrådet (West Sweden Tourist Board) initiated the project Västsvensk Mersmak (”Flavors of West Sweden”) in 2001. The goal was to develop the West Swedish kitchen, with emphasis on locally produced ingredients, traditional cooking and respect for the environment.
Today 25 restaurants are certified and can proudly put the blue and yellow sign “Västsvensk Mersmak” on their walls.
When you plan a trip to Göteborg and West Sweden — take the culinary way to a part of Scandinavia that loves good food just as much as the French or the Italians do.
Between meals we recommend you to experience Göteborg, a great city for both business and pleasure.
The unique archipelago of Bohuslän, with its old fishing villages, the salty sea, and its fresh fish, oysters and lobsters. Dalsland is often called a Sweden in miniature. And last but not least, Västergötland, a landscape that is a living history book. Many of the most important events in Swedish history took place here.
