Cafe Sorgenfri, Oslo, Norway

On the flight to Oslo I had a nice conversation with the guy in my row.  Since we were staying in the same area of Oslo we decided to meet up later.

So after checking in to our respective hotels, I met up with him to get some dinner.  He’d been to Oslo before so suggested walking over to the Akker Brygge area and seeing what looked good.

It was a pretty neat area, near to the museum of Modern Art.  Lots of new condo buildings, it looked quite fancy.  There were many restaurants, and not surprisingly, they were offering options like grilled steaks, Japanese sushi, Italian or Spanish tapas.  It seemed inappropriate to eat non-Norwegian the first night there so we looked around for something a little more ‘local’.

After making almost the entire loop we saw Cafe Sorgenfri … the menu mentioned something about Norwegian specials — bingo!  It also helped that they had nice outdoor seating, and the weather was amazingly mild even at around 10:00PM in early September.

It was fairly easy to choose: I selected the halibut entree and he, not being too hungry, chose the halibut appetizer.  And beers, 0,6 liters of course (not that weak 0,4 liter option).  Pictures after the jump!
