Think of a typically Norwegian dish and you probably imagine hearty food like game or fish. But Norway's breath-taking wild lands certainly influence the national favourites - with salmon, reindeer and berries representing typical Norwegian specialities - Norwegian food also sports a modern flair.
Aside from the usual fare, Norway also has much to offer in the form of contemporary food, as can be seen in Oslo’s many cutting-edge restaurants. Award-winning restaurants across the city and beyond serve gastric delights fusing the modern and traditional as contemporary Norwegian food makes its mark internationally.
Find the best Norwegian food by booking a stay with Park Inn by Radisson Oslo Airport.
Experimenting with Norwegian food
Visit Norway and prepare yourself for a feast of the senses. From traditional to experimental, there’s a taste of Norway for everyone. Whether it’s a simple Norwegian open-faced sandwich you fancy, or the divisive Rakfisk (fermented trout) you can find Norwegian food to satisfy your hunger - or your sense of adventure.
Fish of all varieties is a popular Norwegian choice - try some dried and salted cod, known as Lutefisk, or a warming fish soup. The Norwegian take on meatballs is simple yet delicious and reindeer steak is a must try, while the country’s most famous export - smoked salmon - is plentiful.
