I'm looking for pickled Herring in Taiwan

Did anyone come across pickled herring? I need me some Bismarck-Roll. Matjes would be ok too.

Now I just need to figure out, how to get Estonia shipped to Taiwan.

You may want to try Ikea. I think they used to stock it but I haven’t been in a long while.

I used to get rollmops (love them) at Taipei 101 Jasons. But that was many years ago. I doubt they’re a big seller.

Maatjes are not pickled, they are fermented. I know where to get them, but right now it would be more difficult/expensive to get. In also could get some pickled herring, rollmops (eventually in mayo). No guarantee tho.
I’ve trying to figure out how to get herring, I know they could get it from Japan, and pickle it. They probably have it in Taiwan as it’s used for sashimi, the sour fish with yellow roe.

I’m aware of that. Despite not being pickled it’s an acceptable alternative.

Do you have a price list? Or some estimates, how much for 1kg?

I have to contact the supplier to see if they have stock. The maatjes are imported frozen.
The pickled herring is in pails of 20-30.

I love pickled herring (I am Estonian, so grew up eating herring in every possible form), and I have consistently seen them in IKEA. They are a bit too sweet for my taste but I do always get a jar or two along with a few bags of frozen cinnamon buns whenever I am there.
I also find that Jason’s & City Super usually / sometimes carry some version of pickled herrings. None of them are true Baltic style, though :frowning:.
