Eating out in Bergen

On Friday, we ate dinner just behind the wharf in the oldest dining place in Bergen – the Bryggen Tracteursted. Since 1708, this has been the place where fishermen could come in with their catch and farmers with their produce and then have a meal. The menu had a selection of Bergen and Norwegian traditional fare and everything we had was quite good. I had the Prinsefisk or steamed cod and Robert tried the stekt törrfisk or stockfish. Here’s their website: Bryggen.

For lunch that day, we ate at Cornelia, a former food hall that dates back to 1877 and I had an amazing salmon. And for lunch on Saturday, we ate at the fish market. Though it was crazy busy and packed with tourists, we had some amazingly good frish seafood. The crab just melted in the mouth. Bergen was definitely no slouch in the seafood department!

We also had lunch at the fish market – a shrimp sandwich with the freshest shrimp I probably ever ate!

The fresh stuff is so much better, isn’t it Sharon?
