To celebrate Eastern, we visited Oslo in Norway, where we tried to the discover the entire city in just one day! Of course we didn't succeed, but we did see some different parts of the city and the beauty this city has to offer. We spent our Easter lunch at Kolihagen, an absolute hotspot, so make sure to scroll down and find out!
GRÜNNERLØKKA: THE YOUNG AND BOOMING PART OF THE CITY
This area of the city is very upcoming and surprising. You will find a lot of inspiring and colorful street art, original boutiques and lots of bars that suggest a vibrant night life! I can't wait to get back to Oslo in the summer and experience the easy-going vibe in this area, during on of those endless Norwegian evenings.
HOTSPOT IN FROGNER: KOLONIHAGEN
For our Easter lunch we went to Frogner, the up-town part of Oslo. We made a reservation at a place that can doubtlessly be called a hotspot..
As soon as you enter the big doors, you're stepping into a different world. All the displayed minimalistic goodies can be bought in the restaurant and you literally want to take everything with you! The inviting lights, both in- and outside, bring you into a mood of warmth: you entered Kolonihagen!
The weather outside was cold and rainy, so the welcoming staff was pleasantly comforting. This place has many cute angles and details and every table is cozy and private. The brick walls, the white wood, the lights: it's a dream!
The menu of Kolonihagen is simple and sophisticated. You won't find extensive pre-courses on the lunch menu and there's not too much to choose from. However, the options are all too good, tasty and ecological, so choosing from the menu remains a hard job :)
My husband went for the pulled chicken hamburger and I had the salmon salad. Both of the options were spot-on! The hamburger was super tasty, not too salty and was quite original. The salad was actually really healthy, so the greasy sauce you sometimes get when opting for a healthy dish, was left out. A nice surprise!
WINE AND BEER
We didn't order any wine, since we still wanted to do some sightseeing after our lunch. However, it's a big part of Kolonihagen's concept. They have an exquisite wine selection and they offer beer that has been brewed in their own brewery. Of course we did have a sip of that and I must say: it definitely adds to the experience :)
As soon as you enter Kolonihagen, let the staff pamper you with their delicious, yet super healthy food! In the summer, they have a lovely terrace, so that should make it an even better experience!
