Wednesday, Michelin announced this year’s stars for the Main Cities of Europe. Two new Oslo restaurants were awarded with one star each: Ylajali and Fauna. Next time you visit Oslo you have five Michelin star restaurants to choose from.
The Michelin Red Guide, the oldest and best-known European hotel and restaurant reference guide, awards one, two and three Michelin stars for excellence to a select few establishments.
Newly star-awarded Ylajli has taken the name of a woman in Knut Hamsun’s novel ‘Hunger’ who lived in the building where the restaurant is located. Ylajali focuses on Nordic gourmet food and has a menu that varies with the seasons.
Fauna is regarded one of the best restaurants in Oslo considering the price. Their five dish course is based on Nordic ingredients and provides a wonderful taste experience.
Restaurant Maaemo kept its two stars, and the restaurants Bagatelle and Statholdergaarden kept their one star. Statholdergaarden has been awarded one Michelin star 16 consecutive years.
