“Convenient place”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

I have visited the "litle kitchen" many times on my way to Lofoten. It is conveniently placed halfway from Tromsø to Leknes, at the beginning of the Ofoten Fjord. The little hamlet of Bjerkvik has also a kiosk, a bank, a grocery store and even a little tourist information, so there are many reasons to stop by.

"Det lille kjokken" serves quite good burgers, fries and pizza, but the atmosphere is certainly not glamorous. If you want to have correct to good food and be full quickly, that's the place, but don't wait for three star cuisine. Otherwise, I never had problems with the taste of the food and you generally get served quite quickly, so again, it's really convenient.

“Try the hamburger”
Reviewed January 16, 2013

Try the famous "Bjerkviking" for a good hamburger. Somehow that burger has the reputation for being a must have when driving through Bjerkvik so I tried it.

“Unbelievable”
Reviewed April 4, 2012

I quite agree with the latest review before mine, this diner really is unbelieveable. We were driving past this place on our way to Lofoten, and wanted some burgers before we took off to Svolvær. How hard can it be to make a decent burger? Not particularly, I would say. I'd even say it's almost impossible to make a bad burger.
It seemed like the staff at Det Lille Kjøkken accepted that challenge with their signature burger "Bjerkviking". With great success, too.
It was almost like they made an effort to make the burger as bad as possible. Every single ingredient was awful, making the burger alltogether hilariously hideous. Yes, hilariously, we actually laughed our hearts out when we analyzed how bad the burger tasted in every possible way.
Rather than making a fine crust on the bread, it seemed like they had dipped it in water to make it super soggy. The meat itself was without any spicing whatsoever, rendering it absolutely tasteless. And the idea of putting fried onion on a burger is just hopeless. But the worst element of all was the dressing, tasting something between an old coleslaw and fish. The disgusting taste influenced all the other ingredients, making it impossible to actually taste the bacon and cheese. Salad was ok, though.
All in all, Det Lille Kjøkken made an impressive effort to make an overwhelming bad product.
I would recommend going there just to see how bad a meal can get. You'd be surprised.

“Unvelievable”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Here they have several good dishes, and lots to try, but the Bjerkviking, is and will always be the best burger you have ever tasted. It consists of meat, cheese, fried onions, salad, bacon and some other ingredients, but what really makes it special is their home made dressing. Worda can't explain this burger, it is simply the best burger you will ever taste!
