After opening in November 2019, Skaal Matbar quickly became Oslo’s hottest new restaurant. Since it’s walk-in only, people line up outside until they can get a table – that is unheard of in Norway! Skaal is a food bar (a restaurant with a bar vibe) so you can pop by for a drink, a snack, or have a full meal. Some of the highlights on the menu include Skaal’s layered potato “fries” with whipped crème fraîche and dill oil, and the grilled cheese with cheddar and jalapeños. Chef Matthew Webber also creates incredible vegetable-focused dishes like deep-fried eggplant with hummus and jalapeño salsa, and parsnip with apple, yogurt, and black sesame seeds.
