When Hitchhiker first opened its doors in April this year, Anders went there seven times in the opening weeks because he loved it so much. Finally, Oslo had a Mekka for street food with inspiration from all over the world! Like a child growing up, Hitchhiker has had its challenges, and during the summer and early autumn we saw it go through a pretty rough puberty. However, now it seems Hitchhiker is back! Back on track - back to the origin of simple and good flavors. We tested the whole tasting menu, and one of the lunch options, together with Fredrik, Marius and Anders.
On of the new trends we see in Oslo is that the big malls are refurbishing and opening food courts in their lower floors. Paleet in Karl Johan did so earlier this autumn, as parts of modernizing their mall. Now Steen & Strøm in Nedre Slottsgate has done the same. While Paleet's attempt turned out to be more of a gathering of restaurants in one floor, Steen & Strøm has actually made a food court where you can shop around and grab a table where you feel like it.
Here you can find all the restaurants I visit and frequent. From Berlin to Helsinki and from Oslo to Lima.
