Me and my friend came from Stockholm to dine at the new restaurant scene in Oslo and have heard remarkeble words about Ylajali and as we followed their blog this summer we knew they had just re opened their doors with a new kitchen and improved dining room!.Restaurant Ylajali. A name taken from the mysterious "dreamlike woman" in Norwegian author Knut Hamsuns novelle "Hunger! from 1890.
The premises are warm and modern with a classic frame, and the maitre'd and waiters greeted us well and took our coats. When seated we were given a menu (Ylajali have only one menu) which found inspiration from the first edition of "Hunger" . each serving was placed in a context just like a novelle. prologue, chapters and epilogue.. very clever and a very nice tool for the rest of the evening!
The food to come was noting less then perfection! from small snacks made from barley, raw shrimps dipped in dill cream and crumbles, oysters with cucumber, fresh langoustines with tapioca and well placed champagne to go with the first servings.
After the "starters" we were served mussels and chantarelles served on a beautiful handmade tray, crispy chicken with vegetables from Korsvold Farm. Duckhearts with porcini, and a fantastic selection of cheeses from a trolley. add some perfect seasonal desserts, creative atmosphere, brilliant service and good wines! This was truly an experience!
Cant wait to get back!
