Let’s face it, kebabs are mostly consumed in Oslo by people who shouldn’t be operating heavy machinery at the time. In that state, the three primary goals in selecting a place are: 1) as near as possible, 2) taste 3) avoiding wishing you were dead several hours later.
The rule of thumb for goals 2 and 3 is: if the meat on the spit looks like processed dog food, then high-tail it out of there. Milano Grill may be a hole-in-wall, but the first thing you’ll see is two spits of layered lamb and chicken.
My go-to snack isn’t even listed on the menu – shawarma mix. It’s a mix of chicken and lamb rolled up in tortilla-like bread called “rull”. No need to go large, the medium suits me fine. Choose your veggies and between medium or strong sauce – it ain’t rocket surgery – though I’ve yet to find a place whose hot sauce is hot. Milano’s strong sauce is on the strong side of medium.
There’s not much in the way of seating – a windowless counter and a few stools, but I’ve never really gone there with a candlelight dinner in mind anyway. I eat there whether or not my ability to operate machinery may be impaired as I find it an inexpensive place to supplement for a meal. A number of my friends do as well.
It’s cheap, it’s good and it’s at the end of Torggata closer to Youngstorget.
