Get past the giggles at the name and you'll find the food — a little Polish, a little Canadian, and a whole lot Swedish — gets seriously delicious in a hurry. Which makes this quirky and affordable little eatery one of the Valley's most unique and (for now) best-kept secrets. Nestled into a Tempe strip mall just behind Ted's Hot Dogs, the small interior, half fro-yo joint/half Sun City living room, is home to owner and chef Hanna Gabrielsson and her family. Portion sizes and four side options with most dishes eliminate the need for an appetizer section, so plates of buttery haddock fillets, golden schnitzels, chunky Swedish meatballs, or the exotic Flying Jacob are hearty affairs indeed. Save room for equally tasty and snicker-inducing sweet treats like Beaver Balls and a layered creation called Beaver Supreme. Read our review.
