Next door to restaurant Colonialen 44, you find Colonialen Matbar – the more casual food and wine bar. Literally, one big rectangular bar where the guests are seated on stools facing a bartender in the middle. The kitchen is shared with the flagship restaurant Colonialen, but the dishes are simpler bar snacks like carpaccio, tartar, dumplings, steam buns, and croquettes. I also had a delicious scallop served in its shell with sweet local tomatoes. Not as strictly Nordic as the other venues of the group, but more international and playful.
