Colonialen Litteraturhuset in Bergen Hearty & Modern Nordic Food

Sponsored by Visit Bergen

Colonialen Litteraturhuset is the largest and most easygoing eatery in the restaurant portfolio of Ken and Laila Skorge. I went here for lunch one day and enjoyed a very decent two-course meal, selected from the à la carte offering on the waiter’s recommendation. Gnocchi with braised carrots and parsley roots, buttery toast, and ramson emulsion was the highlight. Tartar with red onions, crispy potato chips, and shaved cured egg yolk was not equally impressive, but tasty nonetheless.
