Food & Drink

Have your fill in Oslo without breaking the bank

Sure it’s expensive compared with most other cities but you don’t have to fork out a small fortune every time you want to eat well.

Mathallen

Ok, you can’t walk around with a glass of sauvignon blanc from some funky producer in the Jura, but Oslo’s food market still has a lot going for it. Try the duck confit sandwich from Ma Poule, hors d’oeuvres from hipster Hitchhiker, or load up for a picnic in one of Grünerløkka’s parks.

Smalhans

This restaurant has a fork, not a star, in the Michelin Guide and serves great food at a decent price. Husmanskost, or Norwegian home cooking, is on the menu between 4pm and 6pm with things getting somewhat livelier in the evening over sharing plates and biodynamic wines.

Dinner

Right in the heart of town, on a parallel street to Karl Johans Gate, this Chinese institution is still whispered about by foodies. Try the killer dumplings and amazing crispy duck.

Lokk

This self-proclaimed “soup bistro” is so much more, as its chef clientele can attest, with a dish of the day and three-course menu to complement its surprisingly extensive wine and beer list.
