The herring wagon, Strömmingsvagnen, is an old classic fast food spot in Södermalm, the south of Stockholm. Situated just outside the subway of Slussen, it is a perfect place to grab some healthy Swedish fast food. Open at about anytime of the day, it is suitable for either a snack or a whole meal, lunch or dinner.
The speciality is Swedish fried herring, with just the right ingredients. Choose it either as a hamburger, on a Swedish hard rye bread or the ultimate with mashed potatoes. So delicious, simple and fast.
Stekt strömming or fried Baltic herring is one of hundreds of recipes based on the smaller-sized eastern relative of the North Sea herring. Swedes often say that Baltic herring is better the fatter it is, but the truth is perhaps that all Baltic herring tastes good. The downside is that water pollution influences the amount of herring that may be safely consumed. Recommended level is twice a month, so as a tourist you are very safe.
