@chefs_eye eating out at the restaurant “Kullt” in Oslo, Norway.

Rocky Road dessert and side order of port.

 

‘Kullt’ is a new establishment in central Oslo that offers a modern pub vibe with fantastic view over the harbor. We decided to visit this place on a Sunday afternoon where we had a rustic Caesar salad washed down with a few alcoholic beverages. As we both have sweet tooth we also went for deserts which was an Apple Cheesecake and their take on a Rocky Road. The lunch menu itself is quite simple and has the classics you would expect to see in American dinner.

All in all, it was a pleasant experience and we recommend to pop into this place if you ever find yourself wandering in Oslo.

We at @chefs_eye asked Tristan a few questions.

ChefsE: Give one piece off good advice?

Tristan: Be organised and passionate.

ChefsE: Whats the worst attribute to have in a kitchen?

Tristan: Be messy.

ChefsE: Favourite dinning experience?

Tristan: I think i have two my first was with my grandmother when i was younger, because our grandmother are the best chef. And the second one was on vanuatu island i have eaten a typical rice with wild vegetable and i have realised sometimes simple food are the best. Sometimes we don’t need to go in a 3 stars Michelin for have a really tasty meal.
