Dying to find a long sought after serving of traditional Norwegian Christmas food, I settled for this centrally located and very traditional eatery (which I've personally frequented since the 1970s). The place was packed with exited guests making a lot of noice. They had a variety of Christmas plates, and we went for one traditional pork plate and one Pinnekjøtt (steamed, dried lamb ribs).
The potatoes were ok. The rest was either bland, dry, cold or tasteless. Normally I finish what comes on my plate, especially seasonal delicacies, but not this time. My date declined a second serving of the lamb ribs, which probably had been soaked in water (i.e. not steamed). I ought to have made a fuzz, but as the place was about to close, the crew tired and my date and me longing to get out of the place, I paid the bill, as little palatable as the food - swearing inside of me never to come back!
