Decided to have lunch today at Operapassasjen (“the opera passage”), a walk-through building that used to house Oslo’s opera (not to be confused with the beautiful new building by the sea). At the entrance facing Youngstorget, there’s a small fish market called Fiskeriet — surprisingly one of the few fish markets in Oslo.
Attached to the small market is a small eatery, with a small menu. We hovered until we could steal a table, and saw on the chalkboard today’s specials: “heart-shaped” clams (69 kroner) and salmon tartare (99 kroner). We decided to try both, along with an order of creamy mussels (149 kroner) from the fixed menu.
Very tasty! and the shellfish perfectly cooked. But we both liked the tartare best (already half eaten in this photo), with its onions, pickles, herbs, and surprising addition of salmon roe. We’ll definitely be back!Fiskeriet
