Fishy Times in Bergen, Norway

While planning my trip to Norway, I was quite intrigued reading up on the Bergen Fish Market but was considering giving it a miss since I have seen enough of those in India. It so turned out that the hotel we were booked into was close to the harbour, a stone’s throw away from the Fish Market. With a tad bit reluctance, I made my way and what transpired over the next two hours is anybody’s guess. We did a quick recce of the place before settling down in a corner sampling the taste of Torget (Bergen Fish Market).

My friend soon shed all her doubts and indulged into the fresh aroma of the mildly spiced salmon, smoked chewy whale and the juicy succulent lobster as they made their way onto our plate one after the other. The cool breeze across the harbour and the warm sun shine on our back just added to the taste !!

Bergen is the central point for a trip around the fjords – Sognefjord, Geirangerfjord and Hardangerfjord. If you are in Bergen, make sure to visit the fish market for a meal if not all :). The market is open from 8 am in the morning until 7 pm in the evening on all days.

    Does it taste as good as it looks ? I mean , we Indians are so used to the Curry preparation for everything…Makes me wonder how would Lobsters taste with french Fries ๐Ÿ™‚

      I love food in any form as long as it is well cooked and not raw and I am a great experimenter with food. I loved every meal in Norway and this one was well spiced and cooked to perfection to retain the juice. You have to have it to believe it.

    Glad to meet another traveller here. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Norway is a beautiful country and is on my wish list. Oh! that way every place is on my wish list.

    How long were you in Norway? Looks like it was summer.

      I have been to all three but this one was special from the taste and the setting next to the harbour. The vibrancy of Pike Place is etched in memory
