Preferred breakfast @ Subway – R: 5/6

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, Gr√łnland

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. ūüėź

Beer prices in Oslo – R: 5/6

24 Jun

Beer in Oslo is not cheap; Oslopuls.no just published an unofficial ‘beer-barometer’ presenting prices from over 60 beer-serving-places in Oslo. Not suprisingly; Lekter’n is topping the list. My impression is that if you’re from out of town visiting you very likely could end up here; Aker Brygge has a great view; fully exposed to the sun; and there’s a lot of space on the boat. If you don’t want to hang around forever to find a place to sit on the nearby places then Lekter’n is a good choice.

My rating of this list: 5/6
… An informative, up-to-date, and extensive list that I in theory could have a lot of use for. In reality I usually buy apple martini’s and cosmo’s when I’m out; while I enjoy Pale-Ale’s at home.

 

 

Kj√łkken Og Bar – R: 4/6

24 Jun

Seems like all I’m doing these days is eat and eat and eat when I look at my blog. ūüėź
I’ve been to Kj√łkken og Bar @ M√łllergata/Youngstorget in Oslo before and had some average meals, so was (a bit) surprised to find their chicken burger so good (meaning better than average I guess). Me ad my feta-craving-friend-Inga asked for feta and it was a successful combination!

My rating: 4/6
…What I wanted when I ordered it. The feta was a nice touch, and should be implemented on the menu by the chef. The spot is great for a day out in the sun, so maybe that added to my rating. The draw-back was one “chewy” part of the chicken, and no flavor in the chicken.

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 Gr√łnland with combination of table+chairs or couch+table.
Will go back.

Bygd√ły museums – how to spend money in Oslo

22 Jun

When the weather is sunny Bygd√ły is good for three things; museums, caf√©’s, and a small beach.

If you like hemp and bamboo then the Kon-Tiki museum is great. The original Kon-Tiki raft is on display inside the museum, and there is a b&w movie going on repeat in the cinema. Not highly interesting, but it’s there. There’s some-sort-of-weird-fish-attraction in the basement supposed to appeal to children(?); a big plastic fish hanging from the ceiling.

Buy an OsloPass before going if you plan to visit more than one museum…

 

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.
