ChefsEye eating out @tukthuset in Oslo.

Bread and alioli.

 

Cod Ceviche, chili, crispy sweetcorn and banana chips.

 

As we walked around looking for a nice place to eat we stumbled across this unique restaurant Tukthuset in Oslo city center. It was a sunny day and we fancied just to have some small dishes to eat and the tapas menu here looked perfect.

We ordered some white Riesling wine as we made our minds up, in the end we went for bread & alioli and cured meats and cheese to start. Not the best cured meats we have tried or the strongest alioli but not the worst neither. The next course was the cod ceviche as you can see in the picture above its swimming in the juices something I’m not use to i prefer the ceviche being dressed enough to slowly cure the fish but we enjoyed it. The crispy sweetcorn and banana chips were amazing and the parsley chili lime dressing was nice. Next we had the albondigas (meatballs) which were tasty and came with a rich tomato sauce quickly followed by the patatas bravas, these were nice with a slightly spicy bravas sauce and alioli. The star of the meal was the crispy langoustines with honey mustard puree deep fried and crisp to perfection.

For dessert we shared the cheesecake it was ok nothing special most likely would not order it again unfortunately.

The server Mikael was very knowledgeable and helpful also the restaurant is very modern and bright with big windows to watch the world pass you by whilst you relax and enjoy your evening. However, being a Friday night we would imagined it to be more lively.
