If you ask me, this forearm-sized langoustine served with blackcurrant sauce will soon be a 3 Michelin-starred dish together with the rest of the menu @maaemo in Oslo. Tonight, the new stars for 2021 will be revealed. Good luck to all the great restaurants in the Nordics!

Beautiful sweetbreads served with wild garlic and herbs @maaemo ⭐⭐⭐ in Oslo. Another stunning dish from the now closed restaurant. But don't worry - Maaemo 2.0 opens next month.

Great Dinner

on 16 Feb 2018

After about 20h travel, we arrived in Oslo for the begining of our trip and Maaemo was the first stop. Maaemo is one of the two 3 Michelin stars restaurant in the Nordics and run by chef Esben Holmboe Bang. Maaemo means « mother earth » and focused on local produce and revisited traditional dishes.

Second stop on the Scandinavian Triple Crown Tour (Fäviken, Maaemo and Geranium).
The team there continues to produce outstanding food with a extraordinary execution and best ever products.
The Arctic Cod, steamed with salted butter was just sublime. This is as good as it gets.
