We believe local food & drinks enhance any travel experience!
Northern Lights might take away most of your attention on this trip with IndigoXP, but do take time out to check out the local cuisine as well.
Like India, regional variances in traditional food are huge and hence there is no one “typical traditional” definition for food. There are variations of bread and other forms of bakery, porridges, soups, inventive uses of potato, salted and smoked meat, and fresh, salted or smoked fish. Dried cod (tørrfisk) and salted cod (klippfisk) are staples of coastal communities.
The national dish of Norway is fårikål, a stewed casserole of lamb’s meat and cabbage while The Grandiosa frozen pizza is the unofficial national food dish.
Steak, medallions and meat balls from game, deer, reindeer and elk are highly appreciated foods along with fish products. Traditional pastries like lukket valnøtt (marzipan-covered whipped cream cake) and variants of cheese are popular. Check out the speciality brown cheese called Brunost!
Very few Norwegian cuisine restaurants have vegetarian meals on the menu, but will make something if asked. Some of the few chains of stores/restaurants where you will always have a vegetarian option is Peppes Pizza, Dolly Dimple’s, Egon, SubWay and Esso/On the run.
Norway’s national drink is akevitt, or aquavit. It is a potato-based spirit seasoned with caraway seeds or sometimes dill, fennel, cumin, star anise, or orange peel.
Binge drinking on the weekends is a well-established tradition. Just don’t drive home after that! Drinking under influence isn’t tolerated one bit and you don’t want that on your record!
But the fare is a feast for the eyes as it is for the soul!
