Restaurant J2 Modern Korean Tasting Menu in Oslo

Although it opened a few years ago, J2 flew a bit under the radar since it was forced to close for many months due to the strict lockdowns in Oslo. But now, a reservation here should be a priority for any food lover in Norway. With a modern Korean tasting menu, restaurant J2 is a refreshing addition to the Oslo food scene – there’s no other place like this in town! From the Norwegian scallops to the bibimbap, we enjoyed every dish on the seasonal seven-course menu. Our favorite serving was the main course of Iberico pork with lettuce wraps, cauliflower purée, and kimchi. A beverage pairing is available with a mix of wine, sake, and Korean rice wine.
