I’ve heard many Japanese are fond of Norwegian sushi because it’s so fresh. But it’s the demand from the natives that has seen sushi restaurants pop up all over Oslo and as you get closer to downtown there’s a good chance you’ll be closer to a sushi bar than a McDonald’s. There are a number of places where more people take out than eat in. Two such places are a 2-minute walk apart: Galgeberg Café (check Galgeberg Cafe article) and Never Forget Sushi.
Never Forget Sushi is very popular with locals around Kampen and Vålerenga. And luckily for them, both Galgeberg Café and Never Forget Sushi came through with a clean bill of health a couple summers ago when 43 sushi kitchens were examined by the Norwegian Food Safety Authority. Three were forced to close on the spot, seven forced to implement immediate measures. It’s reassuring to know Never Forget Sushi is as considerate with your health as they are with serving your taste buds.
Order out from Never Forget Sushi or grab a spot at a small table (full capacity approx. 18). Start out with an initial treat of their lovely miso soup. The fish is fresh, tender and rich in taste. The summer rolls are especially delightful. Overall, it’s a nice place for friends or family to enjoy an informal meal.
