About Oslo Restaurants
History and culture combine to forge a strong bond between Oslo and the North Sea, and it shouldnt surprise travelers that kreps
(mussels), and laks
(salmon) are staples at many of the citys top restaurants, including revered institutions like Statholdergaarden and the Grand Café. Thats not to say that meat doesnt find its way into the Oslovian diet reinsdyr
(reindeer) and elg
(elk) have always been extremely popular. Fresh-grown vegetables and fruits also have their devotees, and the latter are especially tasty when served over a bløtkake
(cream cake). For years, Norwegian cuisine had a rep for being bland, but things have changed of late, and many of Oslos top restaurants now boast chefs with international perspectives. The citys also seen an influx of ethnic eateries, and a stroll through Aker Brygge reveals a healthy mix of Moroccan, British, Japanese, and French restaurants. In fact, if theres anything at all off-putting about dining out in Oslo, its that the city tends to be more expensive than its Continental counterparts middag
(dinner) entrees can start at around NOK200.
