Jamie`s Italian Norway

Ei ole vist eriline uudis, et mulle meeldib hea toit. Ei ole vist ka eriline uudis, et Norras restoranides käimine ei ole kõige rahakotisõbralikum tegevus. Aga…juhtub imesid ja on erandeid.

Eile peale koosolekut otsustasin ma natuke end Aker Bryggel tuulutada. Kui te külastate Oslot, siis Aker Brygge on must-visit-listis küll esikolmikus.Eriti suvel. See lihtsalt on üks lummav paik. Isegi kui te ei külasta restorane, baare ega Astrup Fearnly moodsa kunsti muuseumi (http://afmuseet.no/), siis see lihtsalt on koht, mida nautida – moodsa Oslo sünonüüm. Minu jaoks. Kuigi ooperimaja katus ja Barcode on tihedalt kannul.

Eile jalutades avastasin ma, et seal oli avatud uus söögikoht. Olgu ausalt tunnistatud, et ega ma väga sealsete restoranide poole ei vaata, sest nagu öeldud…hinnad. Aga eile juhtus kuidagi nii, et Jamie`s Italian püüdis mu pilku ja mul tekkis vastupandamatu soov end seal premeerida. Minu üllatuseks olid hinnad Norra mõistes pigem sõbralikud (https://www.jamieoliver.com/italian/norway/menu/). Minu tomati ja vahustatud riccotta salat maksis ca 16 eurot ja taldrikul oli nii mehine ports, et mina vana õgard, jätsin osa toitu alles. Seda juhtub harva. Ma siiani üldse nuputan, kuidas üks nii lihtne salat saab nii paganama maitsev olla. Tomat, kõrvitsaseemned, ricotta, natuke rohelist ja oivaline oliiviõli. Keele viis alla.

Asukohast ei pea rohkem rääkima, kuid koht ise oli täpselt selline hubane ja kodune, nii nagu ajurveeda raamatust ma teada sain, et üks koht olema peabki. Väga ei kippunud ära minema. Istusin seal, vaatasin brygge´l jalutavaid inimesi, kuulasin salaja pealt ühe ja teise laudkonna vestlusi ning lihtsalt nautisin.

Selline “hygge” koht.

I have always liked Jamie Oliver and his cooking (shows). I think he makes simple food look and taste so fantastic.

Yesterday when I was walking on Aker Brygge after an intense meeting I saw that a new restaurant has opened its doors there. Jamie´s Italian. I must be honest and admit that it is not often I have got the thought to go to a restaurant on Aker Brygge, because… common knowledge about the prices in Norway. But yesterday I felt like I want to have a lunch there, treat myself. I went in and to my big surprise the prices were not that high. My tomato and whipped riccotta cream salat cost around 16 euros and I am still amazed about the taste – how can something so simple taste so devine.

I probably do not need to talk about the location more. It is Aker Brygge. It says it all.  When in Oslo this is in top3 on “must-visit-list”. Just to walk there, sit on the benches, look at the boats, the sea, the city hall, Astrup Fearnly museum – it is a summer heaven! The interior of the restaurant was cozy and warm – like a good restaurant is supposed to be according to this ayurveda book I just read. A place for “hygge”.
