Norway is world renowned for its seafood, and it’s on top of the to do/eat list for many tourists visiting the country. Shamefully though, in our capital city, the good and reasonably priced seafood places are far and few between. But there is one jewel and it’s located smack bang in the centre of the city too.
Fiskeriet is half market, half eatery. You can buy fresh seafood to go, and prepare it at home. The salmon burgers are particularly tasty, and make for a quick, healthy dinner.
But you can also sit down and let the chefs there cook it up for you, preferably with a dry glass of white wine while waiting. Fish’n’chips and Bacalao are some of the dishes you’ll always find on the menu – but I find it a lot more interesting to look at the daily specials board. This is where you will find the best catch of the day, prepared in a unique way.
It’s quite a big price difference between takeaway and eating in, so if the sun is shining – get those fish’n’chips wrapped up, and eat them out by the fountain on Youngstorget!
