Tagged for Food
I was tagged by the one and only coffee2go (Sanni) with The Eating Out Meme. Thank you, Coffee. I’ll do my best.
These are the rules:
1. Link to the name of the person who tagged you.
2. Include the state and country in which you live.
3. List your top 5 favorite places to eat at your location (locally).
4. Tag 5 other people (preferably from other countries/states) and let them know they’ve been tagged.
My favourite places to eat in Oslo is at Anna’s of course, i.e. at Home,’ cause she is a wonderful cook. When going out, it depends on the season. It’s a hard task to choose among all the restaurants in Oslo. It is really many good ones. For most of you, you might find it expensive. But it is of course many cheaper alternatives. I have chosen to present 5 after season; all have been “tried” be myself.
I will start with Summer.
1) Lille Herbern - Close to the peninsula of Bygdøy is this small “hide out” island Lille Herbern. It has a waterfront restaurant that can accommodate up to 75 guests, and a terrace that seats approximately 100. Should you want a smaller room there is a chambre separee for maximum 10 guests. Since 1929 Lille Herbern has been a restaurant where the people of Oslo have come to enjoy fresh seafood in a casual atmosphere, and it certainly ranges among the oldest restaurants in Oslo.
2) Solsiden - At the "sunny side" of Oslo. Open only at summertime; 2007: May 2- September 1.
Come taste the best of seafood in Oslo. Live lobster tank, oysters, salmon and other Nowegian delicacies prepared with natural, organic ingredients at the hands of master chefs. Complemented with an exceptional wine list.
Uniquely situated at the historic quay right below Akershus castle. (Map here).
Solsiden faces the most romantic sunsets in town. If you are into culinary delights, don´t miss this one.
In the Autumn/Fall, if I still have money after the Vacation:
– Bygdøy Alle 3 – Oslo West. The only restaurant in Oslo with 2 Michelin stars. Do I need to say more? Look at the pictures from the interieur and at the menu.
Around Christmas, to have traditional Norwegian food – reserve long time before (they open for reservations December a year ahead)
4) Gamle Raadhus – Nedre Slottsgt 1 – Downtown Oslo. The old Town Hall of Oslo. Traditional food, and modern as well, in charming surrounding. Also an open air backyard. More pictures.
During the Winter, when the Sun are coming slowly back it’s time for something Chinese. I mean not the usual Chinese “restaurants”, but a real restaurant:
5) Dinner – Stortingsgaten 22 – Downtown Oslo. The simple name belies the fact that this is one of the best places in Oslo for Chinese food, as well as dishes that combine Norwegian and Cantonese styles. Peking duck is a speciality here, or, for a lighter meal, try the delectable platter of seafood in chili-pepper sauce. See for yourself.
Well, that was to days choices. Might have been 5 others, if asked another day.
Here it’s close to lunch time. I think I’ll have a banana, and then go to my physio therapiste.
I will tag:
Fleur de Lisa in Indianapolis
Expatraveler in Vancouver (some recommendations from Montreux too?)
Shionge in Singapore
Ginnie – where ever she might be just now
Queerchef in Bergen
