Trip to Scandinavia 2013: Bergen's fish market

So you wonder where is the food? So here's the food ;) But only about 40% of the overall foodie I had during the trip, shall blog about the rest in another post.

As I mentioned, there's a fish market nearby the hotel we stayed at Bergen. Basically they open at 3pm til late evening.
Though it's a fish market but it's very clean and odor free (well of course the floor is wet la), unlike what we usually see here, hehe~

Quite a lot of stalls here but most of them are selling similar stuff

Bottled caviar, but since I am not a fan hence I din't buy any

Well I think you know Norway is famous for its salmon! I ate quite a lot of salmon fish this time cause I am a salmon fan ;) Even buffet also served generous amount of salmon, to them it's so common but to some of us, consider quite 'high class' already, LOL!

Competition is on going here as they sell almost the same seafood, so all of them are very friendly, you can hear them greeting you whenever you pass by the stalls

Look at the beautiful color!

Lunch sets are available too, about RM 70 per set, averagely

Live king crabs in the tank

Giant lobsters too!

See, very clean, right?

These were our 'tea time'

'cha cha cha', the boss busy preparing those seafood for us~

As we had just taken our lunch, we only tried a small portion just to taste

Very fresh and yummy! Totally forgot about the cholesterol! xD
Din't know how much overall as our tauke besar paid for it ;)

There's also another indoor fish market nearby, and a cafe

Mr waiter welcoming me ;)

  5. Norwegian Salmon is pretty popular; in fact, that's the only type of salmon I'm willing to eat now.

    Well, the government officials there in Scandinavia stress on the importance of hygiene, I guess? =)

  11. I just love fish markets. Just published about such a market in Venice but yours in Bergen is a lot better. I remember the market we visited in Helsinki and that was also fabulous. We also went to the Tokyo fish market.

    1. i have watched a variety show from TVB and this was exactly the fish market introduced in that show.. nice one, and yes, very clean and tidy and also very colorful.. so different from our Malaysian version of market huh?? haha..

      Delete
    2. the show presenter went to try all the seafood samples and then he was done, and things there are surely not cheap also.. i guess probably they paid the owners some money behind the scene lah.. so you tried the samples and also at least bought something, good girl!! hehe.. :p

  22. The food in UK and Europe are so expensive that even their folks complained the same thing. I will definitely pack some cup noodles in my luggage to save time and money for one meal per day. Sometimes I would just buy bread and dip into hot soups. What a cheapo like me!

  23. I tried eating caviar many times but I found the taste plain and not worth eating for its exorbitant prices! I think they looked pretty to be sprinkled as decorations.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I like to eat foreign crabs because they have longer legs and body. more sweet meat inside. I always got rashes when I ate too much crabs!

    Lucky you, got tauke besar to take the tabs!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Seafood, seafood! My fav. Too bad I don't really fancy salmon! Just eat a little only! :P
