If you came to Norway, the country of fishermen, you cannot leave it without trying a dish made of fish or other seafood available on the menu. Try braised fish (stekt fisk): usually, small specimens are cooked this way. The fish is filleted, flour-dusted, salted and braised in butter. It is usually served with potatoes and creamy sauce. Go to Fiskeriet Youngstorget which specializes in seafood dishes.

Norwegians like a stew. They have several variants of it and mutton stew (Fårikål) is the national one. It is made of cabbage and mutton which are put in layers in a big pot with peppercorns, salt and covered with water. When the meat becomes tender the dish is ready. It is served with potatoes. Come to Elias to try this dish cooked in a Scandinavian manner.
