Vaaghals Family Style Sharing Platters in Oslo's Barcode Area

After paving the way for restaurants in the Barcode area, Vaaghals is still going strong many years later. On the menu, you’ll find modern twists on Norwegian classics, served family-style in the middle of the table for sharing. The menu changes seasonally but always starts with house-made charcuterie and bread, and may continue with dishes like celeriac pasta with butter sauce and “løyrom” (vendace roe), and slices of entrecôte with potatoes and demi-glace sauce.
