This is a must see in Asaa. The little village of Asaa situated at the kattegat costline ones a fishing village with 150 boats now only a few are still active after the fish vanished subsequent to overfishing. The museum is founded and run by Arne Hjelm with a CV of 66 years working on and with the sea. 8 years fisherman, 22 years with his own boat, 22 years as harbour master in Asaa, and now runing the museum at year 14.
Arne gave us a wonderful tour of the collection of the many interesting things connected to the sea and the fishing life of Asaa.
The admision is 20 kroner.
I travelled all the way up to the top of Denmark to have these delicious fisk frikadels or fish frikadels in English, ok, not exactly but close enough! Not sure the word frikadels exists in English. A frikadel is something equivalent to a burger but I like the word frikadel more so I will keep it here.
This is a tiny small authentic almost self service restaurant, on the harbour of Asaa town/village. Serves all sorts of northern sea delicasies in a straight forward, basic way. This is not a place to go to have a fine candle and flower dinner. But it is the place to go to have a good filling dinner at a good price.
It only has tables outside and a terrace on top so I am not sure the place is open in winter.
Favorite Dish: But the frisk frikadels of course. I tried them when I was first there in 2004. They are really good! Served with chips and remoulade sauce. Just the bread was missing for a bread loving Greek like me but I survived.
The only pub in Asaa, Jutland, actually, so you cannot miss it even if you try. A mixture of clientelle, from fishermen to Inuits, with one common habit! They all drink way too much!
A fun place, a great place to meet the locals, as they relax over drinks, with some terrible music at times and some cheek to cheek dancing occasionally. I found it really great fun!
Dress Code: Dress as you fancy. No one cares as long as you are friendly!
