Pickled/preserved Herring in Toronto (NOT sweet)

Hi. I am looking for pickled or preserved herring in Toronto that is not sweet and not in a cream sauce. Thanks.

  1. AQny Russian or Polish delicatessen will have pails of teh stuff.

    1. There is a salty but really good matjes herring at Grodzinski, I think at the Bathurst location. It's soft with great flavour. Sold by weight. Expensive but worth it.

      1. I highly recommend Viking brand matjes herring. I used to be sold at Highland Farms but I haven't seen it there for the last few months. The No Frills on Centre Street carries it and you'll likely also find it at most eastern european delis.

        matjes herring - yum yum :)

          Highland Farms has matjes herring from Poland for $13/kilo. It looked good in the sealed package, so I bought it. No sugar added.
