Bare Vestland is one of my top recommendations for a casual meal in Bergen, located in the basement of Bergen Børs Hotel. Go to this Norwegian gastropub to experience traditional food from the Vestlandet region (Western Norway), like the classic “plukkfisk” – mashed potatoes with codfish and bacon. At first glance, the food seems almost as rustic as the interior, but when you look closer, you realize there’s a modern touch to both of them. There is one major difference between Bare Vestland and a lot of other traditional restaurants in Norway, many of which, let’s face it, often survive more thanks to nostalgia than great tasting food. That is the fact that the chef here, Morten Tungesvik, actually has cooking skills.
Note: This restaurant has closed permanently.
