In Gothenburg there is a block of restaurants like this on Magasingatan, and it's only right that we started at Magazzino, the Italian place. The patio area is full of color; orange napkins, blue plates, bright blankets on the chairs, definitely a festive vibe. I suspect a lot of the hotels send their clientele to Magasingatan because there are a lot of good choices in a small area, but it also means we overhear Americans whenever we're there. I waffle between wanting to crash their tables and ask what they're doing here, or quietly flying under the radar like a local.
Being near the coast there seems to be seafood in almost every restaurant here, and at Magazzino I was happy to find a seafood ravioli, complete with a crayfish on top.

Again, it's Gothenburg so the tacos were scallops, salmon, and white fish, but the sauces were definitely south-of-the-border. Not sure if plaintain chips are Mex, but they were good.
Another rarity in Gothenburg is Chinese food. There's plenty of sushi and Thai food, but I'm a sucker for potstickers so our next stop on Magasingatan was Beijing8. Duck tends to be a trump card for me, so my imperative duck and ginger dumplings got paired with plum and ginger sauce and their house mango citrus iced tea. Yum! I also appreciated that Beijing8 was not super expensive, and the orders are small so you can try several kinds.
After dinner we like to walk around town a bit without worrying about the kids, especially while it's still light at this time of day. Magasingatan is close to the inner canal, and on this particular evening there was a group kayaking lesson.
