When many people visit Oslo, they want to try "typical Norwegian food." Even though they're generally interested in typical ingredients, rather than truly traditional dishes, I still struggle to think of restaurants that won't break the bank. I'm extremely pleased to find a new suggestion!
This charming little cafe, just around the corner from the National Gallery, seems to embrace visitors (English menu, friendly service), and it should still appeal to locals. The menu is built around ingredients that most people would identify as Norwegian (salmon, cod, reindeer) and uses them in delicious (and generous) dishes. Honestly, the portion size was a bit astonishing, especially considering the very reasonable prices.
This will definitely go at the top of my "Out-of-Town Visitors' List" and frankly I'm looking forward to the excuse to go back and try a few more dishes!
