YES, how I wish it's always autumn (and not summer) in Singapore. Lund in autumn is so nice. ok provided it's sunny.
We were getting sick of home cooked chinese food because we don't have that much variety of vegetables and spices to cook here. So we decided to have western dishes instead. okay this is too easy to make to be proud of. The meatballs were frozen but okay at least the sauce was home made. And at least it looks good. right?
This is what they call, a Swedish delicacy. Jeremy and Elaine were here for the weekend. And it's Jeremy's wonderful-est idea to try this out. So it's called "Surströmming"
Wiki explanation: a northern Swedish dish consisting of fermented Baltic herring, Surströmming is sold in cans, which often bulge during shipping and storage, due to the continued fermentation. When opened, the contents release a strong and sometimes overwhelming odor, which explains why the dish is often eaten outdoors.
yes it IS overwhelming. I think before taking that bite.. a part of us believed that like 臭豆腐,it smells bad but tastes okay. But no, it tastes as bad as it smells. I can't describe it. I tasted it for one second and swallowed that whole freaking thing down, drowning it with beer. Well, it was an experience. At something Swedish. haha.
If they can eat this, how can they not
eat durians. How can eating a rotten thing not be worse. Man.
