Looking for pickled herring
Anyone know a place in San Francisco to get swedish food like pickled herring and aquavit? Most important is herring, so tips for non-swedish sources of herring are also welcomed!

In Oakland, there's Nordic House. I'm not sure they have booze, but aquavit's not that hard to find.
Ikea's deli sells pickled herring and a dozen or so other preserved fish products. Go in through the exit to avoid having to wander through the whole store to get there.

I just had a great appetizer at Magnolia that was pickled herring-based. Roll mops, I think they were called. Delicious!
I believe Walzwerk has it as an appetizer.
