The Hairy Pig Deli sign

During our stay in Sweden this month we took the train one day to visit the beautiful city Stockholm, and where to find more signs than in a big city? :)
This restaurant "The Hairy Pig Deli" can be found at the Österlånggatan in Gamla Stan, the old city of Stockholm. I googled their website for the origins of the peculiar name, and read that The Hairy Pig Deli began as a dream in the Loire Valley in France. After a succesful wild boar hunt, chef Joseph Turner had the idea of one day opening a restaurant called "The Hairy Pig Deli". And eventually the dream came true much more far north, in Stockholm Sweden!

I'm linking to signs, signs.

    Hello Marleen, you are missed at SEASONS! Just a reminder that with this week SEASONS - July Favorites moved to artworksfromJeshStG (dot) wordpress (dot)com (because I ran out of space at my previous blog). It's Wednesday noon, so still time to link till 7 pm, USA Pacific time. Hope to see you there, and otherwise coming Sunday!

  4. I like my pigs de-haired, roasted, and sliced onto a sandwich, but that is a great looking sign.
