Happy Food!

Last weekend was Glad mat- festival in Stavanger. This translates in english to Happy food festival. You get a lot of the local restaurants, bars, caterers and farmers etc coming to town to sell and promote some of their food. This year was no exception. I went dow a cople of times to try some of the food and drinks that was there.

In one of the tents many different brewers, had gotten together to have a beer tasting. You bought glasses like the ones in the photo and a few little slips that you could trade in for the beers you wanted to taste. There was plenty of different exiting things to try!

A sushi place nearby had a stand with, well you could probably guess, sushi. They also have a concept called Sapas, that is basically sushi-tapas, that you could order for parties and  likes. The sapas we tasted was very good, and the prosecco we had with it was also quite nice.

I tried a lot of other exiting little dishes from various places, but as i mostly ate them as I walked they were not photographed. All the stands has to offer something they call the “glad mat dish”. This is a little dish for 30 NOK that can allow people to taste different kinds of food instead of just sitting down in  one place and have a full meal (you can of course do this as well). I like the idea of this and it gives me the opportunity to taste different kinds of food.  The Glad mat festival always gets a lot of people out to Stavanger city centre. I think it’s very nice for a short while. But I find it a bit crowded and this weekend was really warm. So I did not stay for long periods of time. For dessert I decided to take some nice french pastry and some berries

back to my place and eat them with a good book on my roof-terrace.
