It’s back in stock: Surströmming. Swedish fermented herring. It smells so bad you have to open it outside (and if you don’t, well, we warned you).
On the other side, it tastes really nice.
Why would anyone actually eat something that smells so very bad? Because it tastes good. In Sweden, have have Surstromming parties and Surstromming appreciation societies. We love the stuff.
You’re not allowed to bring Surstroming back on the plane with you (in case the can breaks on the plane) – so it is hard to get hold of.
We also stock it in the shop on Great Titchfield Street.
REMEMBER TO STORE THE TINS IN THE REFRIGIATOR AFTER PURCHASE – do not store ambient. Please. Don’t.
PLEASE NOTE our webshop is now closed, no new orders will be accepted until the 25th of Dec when we re-open. If you have already placed your order don't worry - we will ship it as soon as possible. Our central London cafe & shop is open and fully stocked until 6pm Dec. 23rd - our lovely team is there to help.
