Food & Drink
Have your fill in Oslo without breaking the bank
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.
Maridalsveien 17, Oslo
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.
Waldemar Thranesgate 10, Oslo
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.

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.

This Grünerløkka pizzeria is always crowded, with the Italian staff serving amazing pies made with fresh ingredients.
