Swedish Herring in Brooklyn/Queens?
nordic deli in bay ridge is closed until the end of july. any suggestions where to get swedish or scandinavian herring in jars in Brooklyn or Queens? i'm only looking for scandinavian stuff in JARS, not regular or cream herring that you get in a your typical jewish deli or at places like acme or zabars, eventhough i love that stuff, too. i know they have some stuff at ikea, but i'm looking for something that, in my opinion, is a bit better, like abba brand.
One of those Russian places in Brighton Beach ought to have what you are looking for. The Russians are herring aficionados and you usually can find a large selection in the stores under the El. The International is a good first stop.
Ikea seemed to have a pretty impressive selection of scandinavian products probably more than the nordic deli, tho I am no expert in this area. I do think there is a place on 3rd ave as noted tho Ive not been there.
I got abba caviar from ikea.... its fine for a quick snack
Im asuming they have the same hering
