Vegan Stores/Bistros in Oslo ?
Posted January 18th, 2012 - 12:18 pm by from Cologne, Germany (Permalink)
Hi there,

next week I'm in Oslo for a short time and I'm searching for some nice Store where I can get vegan Food/Fastfood.

Are there any people who know some locations ?

Greetings

Hey there!
Well, as always, first thing to use is HappyCow ;-)
http://www.happycow.net/europe/norway/oslo/

In terms of stores, my absolute favorite place is Røtter, an organic store that is open every say (also Sundays and holidays) until 9pm. Address: Ullevålsveien 39

In terms of eateries, I highly recommend the Loving Hut (Parkveien 6). It's all vegan, and their staff is super nice! Try the spicy burger :-)

Hope that helps! :-)

Thanks for the happycow app!
I've been anxiously waiting for vegman.org (a similar restaurant search app) to come out with an android version. So far they only have their app available on iphone.
Now I have the happy cow app and I think I've found a new vegetarian restaurant/hotel not far from where I live!

Hi there,

I was @ Lovin Hut, sadly they'd only one of two Burgers and it was very expensive (but I think Norway in general feels expensive for someone who wasn't there before ;) )

The Burger was tasty, but just a little bit to small I think and without soyacheese.

i don't know the prices in oslo, but normally the healthier a food is, the more expensive it gets because of fewer agricultural subsidies they receive. it's "weird" but true...

normally you could ask in every lovinghut to get additional soyacheese in the burger, but you have to pay a little extra

Hi VeganChris,

That's an insteresting angle to see the high prices of organic food. Do you have any information to back that claim? I'd love to hear more.
I always assumed that organic food is more expensive because it costs more to produce and you lose more of the harvest because of not using pesticides and herbicides. This is also what a friend of mine told me about his family's organic farm in Ecuador.
If you have information about lack of subsidies being the reason for high prices, please post a link or something.
Thanks!

@ veganchris:

Yeah of course the vegan food and fast food is sometimes a little bit more expensive, but in relation to some vegan burgerstores in barcelona, hamburg or berlin (in which the burger are really big and very tasty), the price in oslo of ca. 9 € for a burger is far away from the vegan standard ;)

But such everything in norway is two or three times more expensive than in germany or france or spain. So it's not the fault of lovin hut. But the burger was just to small ;)
