A great catch
Considering Norway’s unparalleled access to some of the best seafood in the world, one would imagine its capital was overflowing with great sushi restaurants. Unfortunately, they are rather scarce, and mainly consist of cheap, mass-produced take away or overpriced upscale joints. Then suddenly, from out of nowhere, Restaurant Fangst appears. Located in the basement of a Majorstua hotel, doubling as the hotel’s breakfast room, it’s a rather grey and not so inspiring looking restaurant. But don’t let its dull looks fool you because Fangst is a rare catch in this town. It’s run by two enthusiasts who have gathered quite a following among the local residents who flock to the small bar counter. The menu is short and focused on what’s in season, offering both à la carte and a set menu. We especially enjoy the serving of deep-fried cod tongue topped with bleak roe and fresh wasabi. A miso soup is made with dashi and langoustines, served with a delicious Norwegian king crab – an excellent blend of local produce and Japanese flavours. Our bet is that these boys will move on to better and more suitable facilities soon, and we’re looking forward to it!..
