Craving something Swedish, but don’t wish to brave the crowds over at a certain famous furniture store? New cafe, Overbrod, might just be the answer. 

Located at Anchorpoint Shopping Centre, Overbrod began as a home-based business specialising in traditional open-faced sandwiches, also known as smorrebrod. 

It’s a cuisine that can typically be found in the Scandinavian region, and comprises a piece of buttered rye bread topped with ingredients such as cold cuts, meat or fish, cheese or spreads, and garnishes.

The online store took off, and its popularity spurred the owners to begin sourcing for a physical location for the business. They settled on a unit at Anchorpoint Shopping Centre, which is located opposite Ikea Alexandra.

The deli-inspired cafe, which had a soft launch in December 2022, is simple but homely. The wooden accents and a smattering of greenery make dining there a rather cosy experience.

 

 

Overbrod’s signature items are its Instagram-worthy open-faced toasts that garnered its cult following in the first place. There’s a variety of toppings that cater to different palates, including cured salmon, smoked potatoes, roast beef, and heirloom tomatoes.

A standout is the skagen (S$18), or shrimp toast — an elegant ensemble of Norwegian cold water shrimp, mentaiko mayo, dill, and tobiko set atop buttered rye toast.

If you are hankering for some quintessential Swedish meatballs, the frikadeller (S$18) is sure to satisfy cravings. It’s a flavourful dish with six handmade pork and beef meatballs drenched in rich brown gravy, served with a side of roasted baby potatoes, and paired with tangy lingonberry jam. 

Wash that down with its selection of drinks, including small-batch craft beers and Aquavit, a distilled spirit produced in Scandinavia.
