“Fishan Bua - local fast food at its most traditional.”
Reviewed June 30, 2008

Fishanbua can hardly be referred to as a "restaurant". In reality it is more like a Norwegian fish and chips shop. Nevertheless, the place is a local institution. It was founded after WW2, when a Brtitish or Australian woman, after having married a sailor from Kristiansund, came up with the brilliant idea of introducing fish and chips to the locals. Indeed, this was probably the first time this truly British dish had been made available in Norway.
Long before the various fast food chains had been established in Norway, the people of Kristiansund had enjoyed the privelige of eating excellent food made by Mrs Moe.
Since then generations of locals have praised Fishanbua. Eventhough Mrs Moe is long gone, the different owners have stayed true to the original dish.
The food is nice, but don't expect Michelin star grub. However, take heed of the desperate seagulls hovering above you. They are expert food snacthers, but it is part of the charm eating here.

If I didn't already have people to visit in K-sund I might go there just for Fishan. Litt overdrevent kanskje, but it's really good!
