#MySweden: ‘Stockholm is open to so many cultures’

The Local's readers take over our Instagram account to introduce each other to towns and neighbourhoods across Sweden. Today, Deepak Kamboj from India talks about life in Stockholm suburb Liljeholmen.

How old are you and what do you normally spend your days doing?

I am 32 years old. I normally spend my day at my work, SAS, and then after work I spend some time with my family (Supriya my wife, Vir my one-year-old son) and when I get my time I try to produce some music during evenings and operating my record label Folk Studios which I started as a hobby.

When and why did you move to your city?

I moved to Stockholm almost eight years back and I moved to my current area Liljeholmskajen last year in August because we were looking for a bigger apartment. One thing which made us decide on this area was the liveliness and the young parents which this area has.

Also we love staying near water. Our last two apartments were also close to the water (Hammarby Sjรถstad and Kungsholmen Strand) so we decided to choose Liljeholmskajen. This area also has really good restaurants which makes life for new parents a bit easier. Our favourite is Bankomat, an amazing Swedish Restaurant.

So in my opinion my top choice is @indianstreetfoodsweden, the best place where you can find the best #indianfood ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿฅ˜๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘Œ, why I say so is because the origin of this food chain comes from #india , the founders @dheeswed1 @shailzarora come from Himachal Pradesh, India and have a chain of #indianrestaurant there as well, so they actually know the real flavors of #indiancuisine , I have tried to include some of my favorite dishes in the post and hope you guys can go and try them out, you can follow @indianstreetfoodsweden to know more about the location of their restaurants and their #foodtrucks timing around #stockholm, let me know if you try out their food, would love to get some feedback ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿฅ˜ . #thelocalsweden #mysweden #instatakeover #deepakkamboj #stockholm #indiansinstockholm #expats #instagram this week ๐Ÿคฉ๐Ÿ‘ณ๐Ÿปโ€โ™‚๏ธ ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‘ถ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ฃ๐Ÿคฉโญ .

What annoys you the most about life in Stockholm?

I guess the winters in a funny way. But too many people who are homeless have appeared in Stockholm lately, which saddens me.

How should I spend a day in Stockholm?

Well Stockholm has many cool places where you can hang out, you have museums, you have the hop-on-hop-off bus tours which will show you all the important places, then you have an amazing night life which is really interesting and cool. You can also get some of the best artist/singers concert here, all the big artists when on tour make sure to have Stockholm on the list.
