the.hungry.tourist - Dear AN OPEN LETTER TO BJORNFRANTZEN⠀
Dear Björn,⠀
Your restaurant was the last in our epic Viking food trail, and Dudi Califa told us before, that he thinks that yours is the best restaurant in the world today. Therefore, you can imagine my expectations.  Well, the actual experience exceeded those expectations! Your restaurant is so beautiful, the service is perfect and the food, oh, the food, it was a really a continuous delight. ⠀
I was celebrating my birthday that day (Thank you for the cake!) and I cannot think I could have done it in a better place on earth. Thank you!⠀

CAVIAR DRAMA AT FÄVIKEN!

@magnusfaviken always serves caviar with a green vegetable. Sometimes with lettuce and sometimes with cabbage.
Tonight he outdid himself when he combined it with the first giant asparagus of the season.
Sit back and enjoy the drama.

BEST KING CRAB EVER!
I have never tasted anything that even comes close to this.
@magnusfaviken seems to be controlling the supply of these 2 meter Viking monsters, so it’s hard to meet them in any other restaurant.
The Faviken team then make this supreme product shine by treating it with a very simple and gentle method. This dish alone was worth the trip.

THE KING OF SHELLFISH!
I love lobsters, Shrimp, Crabs and Crayfish.
I love all shellfish, but nothing compares to the sweetness and tenderness of Langoustine.
Here, at @maaemo, Oslo, 3 Michelin stars Chef Esben Holmboe Bang gives the best possible produce a lot of love and care before serving them in a very ‘Norwegian’ way.
I could easily eat the whole pan! •••• _______________________

Many thanks to @maaemo’s team for the unforgettable experience 🙏🏼

Instagram post 17963426824116155 FÄVIKEN. After  two plane rides and a bus trip we arrive in invigorating weather. Dorm style living on premises in cozy rooms with wooden walls and birch floors. How rare that a restaurant has such a sense of place that casts a veneer over food, style, remembrances. (Willows Inn on Lummi Island is best example in USA). So we take a brisk walk before dinner, another before breakfast, and spot the mushrooms we will surely eat at some point. #bucketlist #thehungrytourist #tht_grand_viking_trail #fäviken #swedishfood

Instagram post 17914727617208562 Pretty much self explanatory. I have right of passage on all highways. If I am squashed on the road, you will be fined 1,600 kroner. Life is fairly bucolic. The trick is to avoid slaughter when they turn the sheep dogs loose next week to round us all up. They like to ferment my meat or turn my hide to a cozy hygge throw. Put it in people’s chairs to warm their hind ends. Philosophize frequently with flock fellows. To comfort or feed?  To  bleat or not to bleat? That is the question. #faroeislands #faroesheep  #sheep #thehungrytourist #tht_grand_viking_trail #deepthoughts #hygge
