Best place for Kroppkakor in/near Gothenburg

Hi there. When I was young, my Swedish neighbor would make what we then called "crump-crockers." Those Kroppkakor were incredible, and I've never had them since. So here I am. The food bar is so high in Gothenburg, I can't wait to taste them again. Any suggestions as to where? It's Thursday night here.

I'm sorry, I've really got no answer for you as I'm from the other side of the country, but generally speaking, Kroppkakor is a very regional dish to Swedes. The different regional varieties are mainly eaten in eastern southern Sweden (in Småland and on Öland) and in the northern parts of the country (most famous is Pitepalt from Piteå).

I have no clue where to start looking for it in Stockholm, I guess it might be as difficult in Gothenburg. (Fellow locals, are there any spots in Gothenburg or Stockholm where you can find it?)

Sorry, just as augustekman says, kroppkakor is not a very common dish outside of Småland. They have them sometimes in grocery stores, but they need to be cooked before eating. Restaurant Smaka serves traditional Swedish food (like meetballs) and they have vegetarian kroppkakor with mushroom and Västerbotten cheese on their menu (on the english menu they're called "potato dumplings"). Call or e-mail them and ask if they could cook traditional kroppkakor for you?

I might be wrong on this one, but if I recall correctly, IKEA will serve the dish as well. Otherwise, as stated above it is a regional dish form the Småland/Öland area.
