Today, I would like to share with you my food diary when I visited Norway. Compared to what I am used to, Norway is a very expensive country to visit. Most of the time, I tried to budget my money by eating foods from convenient stores or delis rather than going to restaurants. However, I did eat some awesome foods while I was there and if you ever plan on going to Norway, you may want to try these foods as well.
The cities I visited while I was in Norway were – Bergen, Gudvangen and Oslo. These cities have many local specialty dishes.
My Food Diary in Norway:
1. Lun Ulriken Bolle
The Lun Ulriken Bolle is a pastry with cinnamon and hazelnuts. I ate this pastry when I visited Mount Ulriken.
2. Creamy Fish Soup
This soup was creamy and had chunks of fish meat (not sure which one), I also ate this when I visited Mount Ulriken.
3. Flat Bread Breakfast Sandwich
While taking the boat tour across the Fjords, there was a restaurant in Gudvangen Fjordtell that served this Flat Bread. It had an egg, cheese and salad on the side.
4. Reindeer meat stew with potatoes
Inside one of the trains going to Oslo, there’s a restaurant that served this dish – Reindeer meat. It was very tender and tasty, it’s quite similar to beef stew flavor.
5. Hot dog with mustard and fried onions
The hot dogs from Norway are quite different from ones that I have had anywhere else. They are a bit chunky and flavorful. I’m so glad that they had fried onion as part of their condiments.
6. Pancakes (Svele)
These pancakes a much thicker and fluffier than the pancakes you might have seen. I tried one, and I could only eat just a few bites since it was definitely very filling.
Have you tried any of these foods from Norway?
