"The two kinds of restaurants I..." Other Tip by Trollconsult

Other, Oslo: 18 reviews and 14 photos

The two kinds of restaurants I really like are the old brown cafees and the new ethnic restaurants, but even a number of newer more-or-less-trying-to-be-very- hip restaurants are worth a visit.
Some worth mentioning:
1.The brown cafees.
-Dovrehallen in Storgata, with a bar/cafe on the streetlevel, and a cafee on the floor above with the same dishes slightly cheaper.An elderly clientele, sturdy and filling dishes. Try their Eisbein or Fårikål(sheep in cabbage) and roll slowly out afterwards.
2. Cordial, further down the steet, and Schous hallen, just across the river in Grünerløkka are other brown cafees with a solid tradition.Lorry, just behind the palace is a more upmarket place, with a wide variety of beer(but not so wide as they claim)but I still try to catch their pinnekjøtt (smoked boiled mutton, a western speciality) before the yuletide.
More to come
2. Ethnic restaurants.
a) Vietnamese. In the areea called Inner city east, i.e. between the river and roughly Henrik Ibsen gate, there is a number of vietnamese restaurants, where Saigon in Bernt Ankers gate is my favorite.
b) South asian. Travel to Grønland underground station, and due north you will find what has been referred to as 'Little Karachi' with a number of cafees where one can find diverse south asian food at low prices.
More to come.
c) New cafes.
A few worth visiting:
Den gode kafe, in Fredensborgveien behind the main library.
Delicatessen in Grünerløkka, close by the river.
Furtehr westward you will find Palace Grill(name taken from Steinbec´s Montery tales) close by the US embassy.
