The Golden Chimp Oslo's New Dumpling Heaven

The new project of former Hitchhiker head chef Jan Robin Ektvedt, The Golden Chimp, is located in the former venue of Tøyengata Bodega. His love for Asian cuisine, in particular, street food, has brought him to further delve into the world of dumplings and create a concept based around that. Reserve a seat downstairs for a set menu that features more than just dumplings, or drop by their upstairs area for a simpler selection and natural wines. This is Oslo’s new dumpling heaven! Signatures include crispy kimchi dumplings and thick-skinned dumplings in XO sauce.
