The restaurant Mon Oncle is the latest in Maaemo chef Esben Holmboe Bang’s expanding Oslo empire, located next to his casual restaurant Kafeteria August. The luxurious French bistro is hard-to-book, but with good reason – this is a fantastic addition to the city’s food scene. From the swanky design, to the fun playlist, to the decadent dishes, it’s hard not to fall in love with this place. The menu is à la carte, so start with some snacks like the melt-in-your-mouth Iberico toast, move on to an appetizer (we adored the vol au vent with sweetbreads) and finish with the Beef Wellington in a truffle sauce. But take caution: the food is exceptionally rich and you will leave quite full, so don’t overorder!
