We visited Nordic restaurant, Oslo, which just so happens to double as a live music venue. Although we didn’t see this side of it, we tucked into a few of their dishes and here’s our verdict.
Our favourite dish of the evening would be the Polse, which is flame grilled Norweigan sausage with horseradish flavoured beetroot and sourdough. A lovely little entree that caught our eye and of course we had to have it since we were surrounded by the Nordic influence.
On to the mains and I had a beast of a burger, which was the New Orleans burger. Stacked with a cajun spiced buttermilk chicken breast, lettuce, tomato and served with homemade guacamole and sirachi mayo with a side of sweet potato fries. A messy but satisfying burger.
My guest decided to go for the catch of the day, which on this occasion was salmon. This was served with homemade dumplings and a mixed salad.
To finish off a pleasant meal, we went for the chocolate melt. Although my burger almost defeated me by this point, I always make room for dessert, no matter the circumstances. The chocolate melt, served with salted caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream was just sumptuous.
This former railway station turned restaurant and bar, is a great haunt for music fans and food fans alike. It offers a very chilled environment with cool decor, our personal favourite being the haunted house like ceiling shades.
It’s in the heart of Hackney, situated next door to Hackney Central station. The quirkiness of Hackney is not lost in this place!
The service was hospitable and food complimented this. We’d be happy to recommend this place for those looking for something different.
Ideal for: socialising and live music.
