Megan grew up with Norwegian potato lefse, making it with her family every year at Christmas time, and eating it the traditional way: with butter and a generous sprinkling of sugar.
Years later, when Megan and Jeremy were first getting to know each other’s family traditions, Jeremy fell in love with this humble flatbread, and also saw its larger potential as a great street food. They quickly realized they had a unique and versatile concept on their hands.
In 2010 they purchased a 57 year old Streamline Duchess aluminum silver trailer, named her Gudrun (it means “she who knows the secrets of battle”), and opened Viking Soul Food. They decided to specialize in lefse and Scandinavian inspired dishes, taking a somewhat irreverent approach to tradition, while maintaining the utmost reverence for the ingredients they prepare.
The name “Viking Soul Food” is a cheeky play on words, nodding towards the role Jeremy’s cooking style and own family traditions has played in the development of this unique “Scandinavian-esque” comfort food menu.
Viking Soul Food does not condone or tolerate white supremacist ideals, or race/gender/sexual orientation based bias of any kind. They politely reserve the right to refuse service to people who are misusing Nordic traditions to further a hateful agenda.
