Dining alone whilst travelling abroad can be a daunting experience. Choosing somewhere to eat on your own can be quite tricky so I was very glad that my hunch to try Agatan 3 was spot on. I was made very welcome by the host and given a lovely corner table. The menu has a modest but fascinating selection of dishes and as I simply couldn't make my mind up in the end I decided to treat myself to the tasting menu (599Kr). I am so very glad that I did as the six plates placed before me showcased a wonderful selection of local ingredients. Agatan 3 takes the business of sourcing its meat, fish and fresh produce very seriously indeed and it was good to read about the provenance of the food.
The dishes themselves were excellent - thoughtfully crafted and beautifully presented. The balance of flavours was carefully judged and the skill of the kitchen undoubted. Particular favourites were a starter of whitefish roe with fennel smoked halibut, parsley root and citronetté and a main course of wild duck with goose liver, cydonia and Jerusalem artichokes. As I was on my own I opted for bottled beers rather than wine and the host chose a couple of lovely examples to match my food.
A truly memorable experience that was also incredibly good value.
