Local Cuisine

In Oslo, hearty traditional fare is as popular as hip international cuisine. The popular Grunerlokka neighborhood is the perfect place to grab a bite. For a taste of down-home Norway, seek out local cod, hake or herring served with local garnishes like pea puree and pickled red onions. With cruises to Oslo, you can head to an Indian spot for samosas and fried king prawns — the local bounty shows up in the international eats, too.
