    Good luck with your search. In my experience, depending on the treatment or regional origin of the lutefisk, it can range from horrific to passable tasting. I did experience a decent version from the homeland.

    Surstromming? I won't touch that shit with a ten foot pole. I swear, from durian to North American processed frozen foods, every nation has something that's a stinkbomb. All the best though, you are clearly a strong human being ;)

      Is there even a Swedish restaurant in Toronto?

        Not that I am aware of. Although I would certainly be interested in seeing some Scandanavian influenced food here.
