25 Jun

If I could I would have the Italian B.M.T. for breakfast every day, but instead I have it on every other saturday. If I’m hungover this is a lifesaver. Already looking forward to next saturday! Where: Subway, Grønland

My rating: 5/6
…I go back again and again. I really want to give this particular Subway a 6 (it’s that good!), but it’s against my own standards to give a fast-food chain a rating that high. 😐

Breakfast/lunch @ Dattera til Hagen

23 Jun

The plan was to try the avocado bacon sandwich, but the club sandwich won. I’m not sure about what the fried egg was doing there, but it was OK as I love to smear the running plum over bread (dark and tasteful)…

Chicken tasted like chicken, onion like onion, but mustard-aioli was more like plain aioli with too much mayo. Potatoes not too exciting. All in all a good and powerful combination.

My rating: 4/6

The ice coffee was delicious today (as it was yesterday!)

Setting: very colorful backyard diner in Grønland with combination of table+chairs or couch+table.
Will go back.

Best club sandwich in town

10 Jun

Cafekontoret is my favorite for club sandwich in Oslo. The sandwich consists of their own delicious herb bread, topped with fresh sliced chicken, bacon, onions, and the always-fresh-and-tasteful aioli. Personally I don’t like potatoe wedges, but I like peeling off the skin to dip in the aioli. I love to dip.

A lot of different people come to this laid back diner; for both drinks and meals. The only draw-back is that they don’t have outside serving, so if you want to enjoy a beer in the sun after your meal you’ll have to find some other place.

Price tag: 129 NOK

My rating: 5/6
The club sandwich in itself is a 6/6, but the side dish not so much.

 

Finally grilling season in Norway

7 Jun

This past weekend part of the roof top of my block burnt down. Apparently the fire alarms were all on strike.

I was homeless for about four hours before I got to return to my all-new-bonfire-smelling-warderobe.

I’m investing in a Dropbox. Right now.

Lunch @ Cafe Con Bar

5 Jun

I often come here, mostly for the club sandwich or chicken burger. Its intimate indoor setting is good for coffee/wine dates and in the summer they have an extensive outdoor sitting area. It can be difficult to get a seat indoors during the colder months as the place is fairly popular. This time I had a bacon omelette. Not the best I’ve tasted; bland and boring. Will not betray the chicken my next time here.

My rating:2/6 (the iced latte was great!)

May 17 – Norway’s Constitution Day

17 May

Fun because:

1. _Everyone_ is out in the streets celebrating
2. It’s obligatory to eat ice cream, preferably with lots of whipped cream and strawberries
3. You drink champagne for breakfast
3. People get dressed up, and most Norwegians wear their bunads.
4. It’s a national holiday. Yay for red calendar days.

Pictures are from Oslo, today

 

Sunday morning walk in Oslo East

18 Mar

All rested at 9:30 am after five hours of sleep doesn’t happen to me that often, nor does it happen often that I get up this early on a sunday. Oslo looks so different to me when it’s quiet and people are still sleeping (or indoors, what do I know), compared to the vibrant city I am used to.

I had to act like I was tourist to not be frowned upon for taking pictures of the city I live in, but I guess it is like this most places.
