SEATTLE — It's the ooey-gooey fish treat known as Lutefisk.
"It's a dried stockfish that then is reconstituted in lye," explains Scandinavian Specialties store manager Jennifer Ingham.
Ingham says, "Our motto is 'All things Nordic.'"
A Ballard icon since 1962, Scandinavian Specialties is the kind of place where a native Norwegian like Turi Eide finds everything she needs.
"The fishcakes. I like everything about them," Eide says.
The lightly breaded rockfish cakes are the store's best sellers.
"Hands-down," Ingham says.
In addition to food, they also serve up plenty of clothing and gift items. So if you're looking for a truly Scandinavian adventure, head due Norse to Ballard's Scandinavian Specialties.
