Say Cheese

One of the things that I really want to do again is to host a party and/or invite friends over for a cosy dinner/wine evening. My friends and my partner think that I cook good food. I believe them, but I suck in presentation. So yes, I envy people who can make a plain boring meal look awesome.

Last weekend I visited my friends in Stavanger. One of them invited me over to her place and cooked for me. Not only that, she also asked me to stay at her place for two nights. It was really nice of her and to think that she was busy painting her crib. On my last evening at her place, she opened a glass of Merlot and prepared a cheese platter for us to enjoy.

A bottle of Merlot. This is one of the best wines in my opinion. A must try!

TAKE Sushi Bergen

Moving to a bigger city is tough and so as finding a good sushi restaurant. Luckily, during my visit to Galleriet (a name of a mall in Bergen) last year I found this sushi restaurant by accident. It was not hard to find because it is located near the main entrance of Galleriet. I love Japanese food so I am glad to find one.

TAKE Sushi is a small restaurant with a sitting capacity of 14. It is not big but I love how the restaurant looks, simple and minimalistic. I have never been in Japan but it felt like I am close to Japan.

Yesterday is my second time eating here. I treat myself with a bowl of miso soup and 10 pieces of crispy spicy laks (salmon) with avocado maki because I am now a certified volunteer of Red Cross Norway (will do a separate post about that later). The miso soup is perfect (The best miso soup I have tasted so far.). The amount of tofu and vegetables is just right and is not bitter compared to the other miso soups that I have tasted before. The maki rolls are good too. The salmon is fresh and the sushi rice has the right consistency and temperature which only proves that all are fresh.

When it comes to service, they are one of the best. They are very accommodating and friendly.

 

Take note: I am not paid nor asked by TAKE Sushi to write about their restaurant. This post is my personal opinion only.
