Fyr – Bogstadveien has a new hot spot

Fyr Bistronomi& Bar

Fyr happens to be a stown throw away from my apartment; It’s always fun when a new place opens up nearby.

Fyr Gastronomi & BarLocated in one of Oslo’s busiest streets, Bogstadveien, it’s the perfect place to stop for lunch on a shopping trip, or a nice place to eat dinner. In the summer you can sit outside in the cozy garden, and in true norwegian style there are blankets so you can use up the last of the summer days even when it’s gettin a little cold.


When I visired I opted for mussels, one of my favorite dishes, but there were many other tasty items on the menu. And as for wine, they had Rocche de Bellene on the list, for which I give them a thumbs up!


The inside of the restaurant is very well executed. I almost wish I had gotten a table inside instead of outside. Thankfully winter is coming so I’m sure I’ll have the chance soon!



Piemontegirl Needs Your Help

tbt cedar treePiemontegirl is going back to Piemonte – Finally!

It’s been waaay to long since last time. In May we celebrated my dad’s birthday and there was little time for exploring and going off on my own. This time I will be there for a long weekend, all by myself, and I am looking for recommendations on who to see and where to eat.

What wineries should I visit?

This is an area where I, Piemontegirl, could use some work. I usually just go back to the regular ones, mostly because I want to see old friends and try their new vintages. I will of course do that this time as well, but I also want to try something new. Any ideas?


Got any good food recommendations?

There is no shortage of food in Piemonte, but I am tempted to try something new for once. Got any suggestions? I am obviously not looking for sushi or spanish tapas, but maybe it’s time I venture outside of La Morra? hehe…

Vinmonopolet: Wines under 200kr

Vinmonopolet: good selections for a reasonable price

There are quite a few wines available at Vinmonopolet, but you can find some great wines at reasonable prices. (Although that’s not always the case). In any event, I have listed some wines that I think highly of and that as of now are available. However, bear in mind that most of these wines have to be ordered, as in they are not usually in the stores.
