Trip to Scandinavia 2013: The food post (and special dessert)

If you've been following my Scandinavia posts you'd remember I owe you all a proper food post ;)
So here it is, a compilation of food and desserts I had throughout the whole Norway and Denmark trip.

Breakfast is western buffet in the hotel so there's nothing special to blog about

Other than that we had those very typical European courses which consists of appetizer (usually salad), main course and dessert (usually ice cream).


Salmon lunch at Norway. This is considered the first salmon dish I had in the trip, so it tasted very very good, naturally, haha!
End up, we had salmon in almost every meal even in buffets cause it's something so common there~


We dined here at Louise restaurant during the 2nd day, it's just by the sea

A very romantic place actually



Pork set with beetroot and potatoes

Beef with blue cheese and asparagus

The portion is huge but overall taste is quite okay but the service is very slow, may be because of the huge crowd (mind you, there're about 90 people in this tour =_=)

Wait until hubby also sleepy already :p

But then after seeing this beautiful sunset view from the window, ok la, the wait is worth xD

Stopped by this restaurant to have lunch during the 3rd day, it's a small town called Lilihammer



Borsch soup, very yummy! Too bad only one bowl per person 

Hubby had the beef with rice set

Bread is something they must have

I don't eat beef or lamb, so I can only choose chicken, pork or fish. This one is the chicken set, the sauce is very nice!


A quick photo stop before we leave the town


Lunch at a Japanese restaurant called Sushi Sagrada, located just beside Bergen's fish market


Their miso soup looks good but slightly salty

Our sushi set, it's for 6 person but seems a bit too much for us too, as rice is quite filling~

Unagi set

Fried rice

Tempura set


Wine is also something common there~

Seafood platter this night! Very fresh prawns and lobsters! But weird, all the prawns we had during the trip had eggs inside... One or two is ok but if too many I'll feel gerli.... So I actually remove those eggs~

Fresh greens, me like!


This pot of fresh juicy mussels is for 4 person, we actually wallop all :p

And since we had too much mussels, we couldn't finish these fish, it's kinda waste actually 




Hard Rock cafe, Copenhagen


Beef burger

Pork rib set

BBQ chicken set. Hard Rock cafe is famous for its heavy metal menu, the portion is super huge, most of us can't finish the whole set.......




Other than these, the tour arranged some Chinese cuisine but based on my personal experiences, Chinese food are just so so at European countries, so there's nothing to shout about also~






Ok, so what is special dessert you asked?

Special 'dessert' like this, good looking Norwegian guy :p :p



Hehehe :p (He looks like a celebrity but I just can't tell who!)

Actually most Norwegian guys are handsome, and the girls also very pretty!

This one is by far the cutest waiter I've seen in the trip xD

Ok now please wipe away your saliva! ^_*
