Maaemo Oslo Norway restaurant

***

Maaemo

As the founder and head chef of Oslo’s only three-star Michelin restaurant, Esben Holmboe Bang has set an exceptionally high bar for himself and his team. Maaemo, a name that derives from the ancient Norse word for ‘Mother Earth’, indicated where his priorities lie. He makes sure that all produce on the set menu is either biodynamic, organic or wild. As such, Maaemo is an exploration of the Norwegian terroir. Guests are invited to enter a dramatic, dimly lit space with high vaulted ceilings, designed by local firm Radius design, that feels both sophisticated and clandestine at the same time.

Hot Shop Oslo Norway restaurant

Hot Shop

Hot Shop, named after the sex shop that formerly housed the premises, is part of Oslo’s semi-fine dining scene – an unofficial movement that serves up high-quality fair at reasonable prices in fringe locations on the outskirts of town. Founded by Jo Bøe Klakegg and Siri Haslund, partners in life and business, this casual neighbourhood bistro has a Nordic-style simple five-course dinner where local produce is front and centre. Veggies as food porn, in other words.

Hyde

At the exact address that used to house an Oslo restaurant icon – Pjoltergeist – is Hyde, another must-visit eatery in the Norwegian capital. The music, which is cranked up, and the lights, which are dimmed, give an almost nightclub-y vibe. It is in this casual setting that British chef Matthew North serves up his punchy dishes, created with a few simple quality ingredients. When you reserve a table, there’s a set menu, but if you enjoy a more spontaneous menu with smaller dishes, drop by for a spot at the bar.
