Let’s face it, many of the kebabs consumed in Oslo are eaten 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 in Oslo’s Meatsnacking District, 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.
