Kalas & Canasta

Visited 8 June, 2015.

This is a pleasant little restaurant in the Baklandet. It has a glass covered courtyard as the primary seating area with a couple of inside tables and several bar tables and chairs. The decor is funky but not jarring.

They offer a evening menu which features 5 courses, you may choose any number of them for a meal. we chose two courses each. Prior to the main meal, bread was served. The bread, which was accompanied by very good butter,  had a marvelous crisp crust and a big fluffy but chewy interior. J selected the excellent slow braised pork rib dish. The meat was tender and moist and mildly seasoned so that the predominant flavor was pure pork. It sat on a bed of perfectly cooked vegetables which included cabbage, green beans, and asparagus. The dish was accompanied by a small bowl of boiled potatoes; the usual Norwegian delightfully creamy variety of fingerling potatoes. I selected the cheese course which consisted of an excellent French blue cheese, a beautiful creamy local cow’s milk cheese, and delicious house made fruit and nut bread. We both chose to have the dessert; a luscious vanilla panna cotta covered with rhubarb compote. It was served with a quenelle of vanilla ice cream and a snow of crumble. Excellent!

There were a lot of beer choices, J particularly like the locally brewed beer that is offered exclusively here. I enjoyed a Bulmer’s cider.

Service was friendly but on occasion a little lacking. Overall, an excellent meal and a very good experience.
