New Orleans Cajun-Creole dinner in Oslo

posted on 17th April 2013 under Food, Habits

New Orleans in Oslo #C2Restaurant New Orleans reflects colonial elegance, with high ceilings, large arched windows, crystal chandeliers and classic furniture and is the only place to get real Cajun-Creole in Oslo. It’s a casual and popular establishment – with mostly Cajun, jazz, blues, zydeco and ragtime music on the menu. This is the place to go if you love classics such as jambalaya, gumbo and ceviche plus other Creole inspired meat and fish dishes. You are also welcome to invite friends to a Crawfish Boil Party: a Creole tradition consisting of steamed freshwater crayfish served in large portions to share with accessories.
My lovely wife invited me to a surprise date on Saturday and since she is an American, she said it was about time – both to have a date and to dine out : -) You’re welcome to join and sit in while I tell you about our quality time. Let’s start with the described interior, inspired by the American colonial period in Louisiana with crystal chandeliers, dark wood and brocade upholstered chairs:

So it was in these surroundings with long roots and traditions of the New Orleans area we enjoyed our meal. We love food and especially with a local connection and then it’s a bit special to eat Cajun-Creole in the capital of Norway. I have noted what they have to offer and from the rich menu we chose our respective main course:

Left: Cajun Popcorn – Right: Po´mans Jambalaya Louisianans

Everything was pleasingly served and delicious – a really nice staff provided good service in a nice atmosphere. My dear wife felt almost like home and had the following suggestions for dessert:

Pecan Pie with vanilla ice cream

All in all, this was a positive food experience that can be recommended for those who want to try something different in Oslo. The New Orleans restaurant is located right in the center, just a stone throw from the main street Karl Johan. If you are a jazz lover, I recommend that you check their web site when you book, so you can simultaneously check the live music events – bon appétit!
I had some fun using PS Touch for image editing on my iPad for the time being. Of all the pictures we took, I made this summary:

All this resulted in a pleasant and interesting dining experience. I recommend you to check it out if you are in the area.

    I’m still up for adoption, Renny. You two have the most fun and I’d love to tag along. I get to see Diane’s activities on LinkedIn and occasionally on Google+ but I never seem to catch up with you anywhere these days unless I go looking for you. Then, when I do find updates, they’re days old. I hate that and find that I really miss your smiling face. We’ve somehow lost touch so let’s fix it, k? ٩(͡๏̯͡๏)۶

    Keep me updated whenever you have the time and energy, k? I’d really like that. ♪(´∀`) ♫
