Viveca and Håkan Averstedt | Owners/Operators

swedeDISH is Orlando’s ONLY food truck serving authentic Swedish cuisine…on the go! The food truck is co-owned and operated by Viveca and Håkan Averstedt.

The Duo
Following in the tradition of Viveca’s renowned Viking ancestor, Leif Eriksson, this husband-wife team left family and friends behind in Stockholm, Sweden for Orlando n 1998 to conquer new challenges in America. Specifically, with the goal of actively competing in the world of NHRA; yes, that’s right National Hot Rod Association Drag Racing!

Viveca, known as “The World’s Fastest Viking,” filled the driver seat with Håkan as her crew chief and together they achieved years of legendary performance records and victories in Europe.

The food truck trend caught their attention a few years ago and sparked an entrepreneurial dream: share food they know and love through the streets of Central Florida and beyond.

swedeDISH is a perfect representation of our life and journey,” says Viveca, “It’s a fusion of Swedish traditions with Central Florida roots.”

Viveca Averstedt
Viveca’s culinary skills have been sharpened creating traditional Swedish dishes for big family celebrations as well as during their racing days when she catered for their own race crew and sponsors (up to 250 people at a time).

For swedeDish, the menu continues that tradition of authentic Swedish cuisine, some recipes hundreds of year old, along with specialty dishes created and mastered by Viveca.

Håkan Averstedt
Håkan has hands of magic.  His talents range from building custom top-fuel dragsters, motorcycles, & custom kitchen installation to the transformation of the ex-NASA mobile computer truck into swedeDISH’s new home on the road.
