The Norwegians have something called matpakke. It is basically the same as American’s brown bag lunch.
My first exposure of this was on a show called Alt for Norge. Pretty funny show where they brought over Americans with Norwegian heritage and are putting them through contests involving traditional and some not so “traditional” norwegian customs.
Of course the show has plenty of Minnesotans… think it would do will in the upper midwest.
Back to the matpakke, when I was walking through Oslo S to catch the traing, they were handing out some of these promotional matpakke.
I have had a few decent burgers in Oslo, but there was just something missing so I had to go and make my own.
No, it wasn’t one of those crazy American burgers with donuts or Twinkies, partly because I can’t really get them here.
But, I did add some onion, soy sauce, bread crumbs, garlic and egg to the meat and then cooked it up all nice. Put on some cheese, lettuce, onion, pickles, tomato, some local burger sauce and of course – bacon!
Also nearby is this pier.
I imaging this is what the area might have looked like in the 18th century.
About a minutes walk from the office is this great view.
Had to run an errand to Nydalen and found the station to have a pretty cool escalator.
The lights changed color so it was like at the club – even had the feeling you were moving without moving.
