Norway: Birthday celebration - Enoteca Svanen and Restaurant Fjord

I had a great 50th birthday celebration. We started my birthday at Enoteca Svanen in Oslo.

It is a fairly new place for wine tasting and is located on the premises of the old Swan Pharmacy. The interior is retained and creates a pleasant environment with historical buzz. You also get a tasty cured meat and cheese plate there, which can be recommended if it is a little too long for dinner.


The trip continued to Restaurant Fjord, where my boyfriend had ordered a romantic 6-course meal for two, with accompanying wine package:

Norwegian mackerel sturgeon with horseradish, ponzu and wasabi

Milk-poached monkfish cake with mussels and celery sticks

Jerusalem artichoke and smoked haddock

Fried Håbrann with «gnocchi», pumpkin and sage sauce

Ripe cheeses

Plum with yogurt powder and licorice

The food tasted lovely and the staff were nice and attentive. Here's a little taste of what we were served.




After dinner we went on to Gardermoen and spent the night there until the next morning. We took the plane to Milan, where the trip continued to Barolo. I have to say that this is a perfect 50th anniversary with an even better sequel.
