Welcome to the easiest and tastiest DIY workshop of your life!
What are Swedish tacos? Are they anything like “real” tacos? Not really. Swedish tacos have their own unique flavor and are super easy to make, so why not make a lunch out of it and join us to try them yourself?
The exact location of the workshop will be revealed to those who secure a spot, but we can say now it’s close to Zhongxiao Fuxing.
A BRIEF HISTORY OF SWEDISH TACOS
A few elements conspired to make Taco Friday a Swedish institution. The Swedish chips company OLW popularized the slogan “Now it’s cozy Friday time” in its commercials. This is widely believed to be the origin of the term Fredagsmys, and in 2007, it was even adopted into the Swedish dictionary.
Meanwhile, the Swedish spice company Nordfalks, which marketed their Tex-Mex products to appeal to a Swedish audience, eventually changed its name to Santa Maria due to the popularity of its tortillas and tacos. Their TV commercials suggested tacos as a staple of Cozy Fridays, and for Swedes, who were already used to smörgåsbord or potluck-style meals piled onto one plate, tacos were something new and exciting, yet familiar too.
