Restaurant Review: Napoli1820 in Milan, Italy

Friday night me and my girlfriend G where in Milan for a quick visit. So we went out to dinner. We found Napoli1820 by the channel in the district of Navigli.

The interior of the place is colorful and pretty typical real Italian style. So it’s not a very special experience here but that doesn’t matter because the place you want to be is outside by the channel and where people passes by. Real cosy at the evening and a lovely atmosphere with a lot of real Italians surrounding you which give and authentic feeling.

So how about the food? I had the 1820 primavera pizza and I got to be honest, it’s probably the best pizza I ever eaten in my life and that’s why I can’t give anything less than 5 out of 5 stars. And the staff is great, friendly and just great.

Warmly and deeply recommend this place.

Restautant Review: Spice Kitchen Kök & Bar, Kungälv, Sweden

Location is central but I wouldn’t call it especially cosy and it doesn’t have any views. But its in a okay building and the interior is okay, Most of the interior is black and its a pretty small place but that’s not why I stop by here. It’s the taste of the food that’s the thing about this place.

To be honest this is the best Thai food in Kungälv if you ask me and it also keeps a very high standard compared to al the Thai food I’ve eaten. I would say that it’s even among the best so if you pass by I could easy recommend it just because of the food. But I have only eaten take away from this place.

Best Burgers in Oslo

Kverneriet – The Classic

Tasted The Boss and The Burglar. I’ve eaten some burger but this is among the best burgers in the world and definatly the best burger in Oslo. It’s a classic burger with cheddar, burger, some veritables and it’s just how I want at classic burger to taste. It’s cool interior and has a friendly staff.

The place is located near Majorstuen Subway station and if you will be more than four you will probably need to book a table. It’s real popular and no wonder why.

Hva Skjer – The New

Cool place in the district Torshov in the same building as a concert venue. But the burger here is cooked over open fire and the taste is something different to everything else I’ve ever eaten when it comes to burgers. It’s Asian influences makes it not only delicious but also something new compared to what I’m used to.

Gogrilla – Take away

In my opinion the best take away burgers in Oslo comes from this food truck that’s often is located near Akerbrygge and city hall. Great burgers and nice sodas that’s a bit more different than the regular cola or beer.

Restaurant Review: La Taqueria

Last summer during my road trip in California I finished the road trip in the lovely city of San Francisco. I did my first visit to the Mission district in order to watch street art and try La Taqueria which is kind of a Mexican fast food restaurant.

When I got to La Taqueria I have to admit I has hungry, angry and way annoyed by the long waiting line. But I head that this place had the best tacos in town so I had to try it.

Exterior looks Mexican and clean. A nice exterior and sign I have to admit that. However the interior really isn’t anything special for a kind fast food place but it work.

It’s true, everything you’ve heard about this place. The tacos is the best tacos in the world. World can’t describe how good they where I went from this place happy.

This place gets not only recommended by me but I also give it 5 out of 5 points.

Fake Christmas #2

Yesterday I celebrated fake Christmas with my family couple of miles south of Gothenburg. Today is a new day and the plans for today is to celebrate fake Christmas together with my girlfriend Gs family a couple of miles north of Gothenburg.

So I think that today will it probably be more traditional Christmas food. Some relative to G will also join us which will be nice.

Tonight I’ve got some plans with two old life guarding buddies J and S so we will go out and have dinner together at a restaurant in Gothenburg. I’m really looking forward to that.

Restaurant Review: HQ Brgrs

This is a street food stand that looks better than the most places. In fact it looks a it trendy and cabin and bbq stylish. It’s not fancy but it probably got the best exterior I’ve seen on a street food stand in Scandinavia.
So let’s look inside it got a few seats if you want to eat there but by the amount of seats it’s obviously a take away place. But it still look good. 
Time to say something about the food. I had the bbq burger with fries. The burger tastes great and you can see that it’s good meat in the burger and home made or that’s at least what I think it is. The burger it self tastes great and so do the fires. It’s also not the usually thin and small fries, these are about thinker and tastes good but have a great crispness that always is good and ads something if you ask me.
Would I recommend this place? Yes. And I would give it 4 out of 5 points. If you want to check it out do it at Yelp at:

Restaurant Review: Stateline Brewery & Restaurant, South Lake Tahoe

Another stop at my California road trip when I visited South Lake Tahoe.

The Stateline Brewery & Restaurant was the second brewery I visited during the road trip. Its a restaurant and bar in the basement for a more mountain and cabin inspired shopping street with small malls in a similar style of buildings.

I had the chipotle chicken pizza with seasoned chicken, bacon, red peppers and pepper jack cheese with marinara sauce with chipotle aioli and green onions. Never ate this kind of pizza earlier but got to say that it was much better than expected and tasted good. Nothing but an ordinary pizza in my world but nice to try something different and this was apparently the pizza that where most popular and had been on the menu for the longest time. So, enough about the food. How was the beer? The beer was good or I would even say that it was great. The fact is that I could recommend this place only for the beer.

A place I would recommend, especially for the beer. I give this place 3 out of 5 points a real good place that I would recommend this place.

Restaurant Review: The Venice Whaler

During my road trip to California last summer I visited Venice Beach and tried out The Venice Whaler. Located in a unique blue house with a clear surf vibe to it which I really like and its located just by the Venice beach boardwalk. And because it was the first day in California i just had to get a burger.

So I tried the Whaler burger which where a real good burger with the place own beef patty blend, cheddar, slaw, chefs secret sauce and had fries with mayo to go along with the burger. The burger where a real good burger no doubt about that but the real thing here is really the fries. In fact I think they have the best fries in the world here. Its just perfect from the inside and out and the crispness is just perfect. Have never experienced better fries than these once.

If you visiting Venice beach I would really recommend this place and if I would grade it gets 4 strong points out of 5.

Café Review: Café Da Matteo, Gothenburg Sweden

I visited Gothenburg a city where I lived for 7 years before my nice to Oslo. But one thing I always wanted to try but never got the time to do is to try café Da Matteo. It’s mentioned in several international magazines and papers and is to be seen as the best café in Gothenburg if I got it right. Its also mentioned in the Swedish White Guide that rank the best places in Sweden to eat and drink.

So I finally tried it. I tried the nougat Croissant and the apple juice. Nothing very spectacular to try and all this where good. In fact it was very good but not the best I ever tried of the top croissant of apple juice. I had higher expectations after read and heard all about it.

However the the environment where cool it’s located in a very central but still a bit secluded part of the city and with a little square in front of it with trendy stores which I also visited. But the setting of the café is old fashion. The best feature is its location and interior or to be able to sit outside and look at people. I would try it again if I got the chance. I will give it 4 out 5 points and would recommend it.
