Restaurant Review: Vippa, Oslo, Norway

This is among the coolest places I’ve been to lately and definitely the coolest and best food court/market I’ve ever been to. The place is an old warehouse building with a lot of foodtruckish stand that ll serve dishes from different places in the world. Italian, Thai, Chinese, American, Middle east and so on. And in the middle is the tables and the seats so all could sit together even if you want different dishes.

Great selection and but I tried the duck burger which where amazing and the fries with oregano which where to much oregano but okay. The duck truly where real great.

However, the experience in it self and the selection made me just want to come back. They also have a pretty cool outside area just by the water where you can enjoy the amazing view. Its  cool setting, perfect for lunch and brunch or just something to eat spontaneously. Its affordable among the best prices I’ve seen in Oslo for this kind of food so highly recommends it!

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.

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.

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.

Restaurant Review: Hvaskjer

Yesterday I visited the restaurant Hvaskjer (Norwegian for approximately what is happening) thats located in Torshov. First visit to this place and I really like it I can say you that much already now.

So lets start with the exterior, it all looks like a cinema or a small venue for concerts which is also is and a bit luxurious in the put side. When you get in you get a hipster vibe, modern, good food, rustic and focus on meat. Very dark interior which I can have a hard time to like often but not this time because the make their concept to 110% without any compromises which I really like. The open kitchen where you can see how they make your food over the open wood fire just makes it great.

And this place is a restaurant that really have focus on the meat and it’s very obvious that it is that way. I had the burger of the day which probably is the most innovative burger I ever tasted anywhere in the world. I was well composed and with Asian taste influences and probably the best meat I’ve eaten in a burger, might be of all time or might be just in Norway. Not sure about that yet. If you like fires they are perfectly crispy and just perfect inside as well but I think they would be even better without the Parmesan cheese and the spices. But still top notch fries.

If you like burgers or meat at think this is a must visit place. I will go here again just to try out the meat very soon I hope.

However, I have nothing bad to say about this place  and I really want to review it with top review but I just can’t. I can not say what it s but there is something missing that I cant pinpoint so I will rank it with 4 out of 5 points as close to 5 points as it possible gets and I will more than recommend this place.

If you want to check this place you can find more info on their webpage: http://www.hvaskjertorshov.no or at Yelp: http://www.yelp.no/biz/hvaskjer-oslo?utm_campaign=www_business_share_popup&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_source=(direct)

Restaurant Review: Kverneriet, Oslo, Norway

The interior of this place is trendy and cool might be the best interior for in Oslo

This is a popular place, no doubt about it. The first time I tried to eat here it was full end the second time I got a table but it was rather full then also. But that doesn’t affect in a negative way at all, quite the opposite. I like this place and the interior design is great for a burger restaurant. It’s rustic and a cross over between a barn and the industrial look at the interior and I really like it a lot. The only burger restaurant that comes close to this interior design is probably The Barn in Gothenburg. But enough about the looks, how about the food.

I had The Boss Burger with honey- and pepper glazed bacon, fried mushrooms and onions, chipotle mayo and jarlsberg cheese. A real good burger in almost perfect, in fact its so close to be perfect but it’s not totally there even if wish that it was it isn’t but it’s as close as it get to a perfect score.

The fries is world class and among the best I ever tasted.

I warmly recommend this place and in Oslo and I would give it 4 out of 5 points.

Restaurant Review: Burger Lounge, South Lake Tahoe

I stopped by the Burger Lounge on my way from Emerald Bay on may to the beach during my stay in South Lake Tahoe during my California road trip.

Its looks like a small little cabin and its a fast food restaurant but with charm I would say. I liked it and think its not the place for fine dining but for a great vacation lunch wit great burger and fries this is the place I would recommend in South Lake Tahoe and for you that is on a California road trip I would almost say it’s a must in Lake Tahoe.

Located pretty much in the wood surrounded by big trees and a great place outdoors where you can eat. A bit limited with parking but most of the guests seamed to solve that issue and one way or another anyway.

I had the smoke burger which I can highly recommend. Not the absolutely best burger of my life but defiantly high standard and a great burger. I warmly recommend this place. So whats the grade? I give it 4 out of 5 points!
