Mention Jensen’s and most people in Denmark would know about the steakhouse. With its origins from Denmark, Jensen’s have since expanded to Sweden, Norway as well as Germany. There are a total of 12 outlets in Sweden, so you’re likely to walk into 1, especially if you’re in the capital, Stockholm. My friends and I went to the branch at Vasagatan, Stockholm for lunch.
The good thing about lunch time in Stockholm is that there are plenty of cafes and restaurants that would have lunch deals, and Jensen’s is one of them. Come dinner time, the prices would be back to the usual fixed prices.
Many people flock to Jensen’s not just for their steak, but for their all-you-can-eat fries as well. Of course, it is not the healthiest free flow food item you can get but if you’re extremely hungry, nothing beats having free flow carbs right? 😀
Since I wasn’t exactly that hungry, I did not get the free flow fries. I ordered the small lunch steak, alongside mashed potatoes with bacon and pepper sauce. The wait for our food took quite a while although the restaurant was not exactly packed. Also, I ordered for the steak to be done medium well but the steak arrived well done. It was also the same case for 2 of my other friends. I then mentioned it to a waitress. She was kind, polite and offered to replace the steak for me.
The end result was a slab of steak which although wasn’t too big, was of the right texture. As I cut the steak up, the juices were also oozing out. The insides were pink and yet weren’t too raw for me. It was also much easier to cut the steak as it was far more tender as compared to the first. For the side, the mash potato was of a good consistency with no lumps at all. Of a smooth consistency and being lightly salted, every spoonful was a delight. The bacon bits that topped off the mash potato were of an optimum saltiness level and fried such that theres a slight crunch with each bite.
OVERALL RATING: 8/10
Steak was done pretty good the second time. Service was also fantastic and the staff politely allowed for individual payment although we came in a relatively large group of 5.
