Hello Peter.. We call hot dogs, dicks... in norwegian (he he) Im only kidding.. ;) PØLSER is the name for hot dogs in norwegian. The letter "ø" you don't have it in your alphabet..
groovehouse: 4th Nov 2005 - 00:38 GMT
PØLSER, that's what we had during Constitution Day celebrations when I visited many years ago! Great pic!

Yes.. i am afraid that visitors to Oslo Norway and other places in Norway will be very chocked about our prizes here in Norway. Here is some examples: A beer in glas = 14 dollars pr half a liter,a beer in botle = 16 dollars. On shot of whiskey(4 cl.)= 17 dollars. Dinner for two in Hard rock cafe Oslo = 132 dollars.(depend what you eat, but this was one of the cheepest food) Cover charge in a bar = 16,50 dollars. All over Oslo the prizes is almost the same... but you "might" find cheeper places to go.. but thats way out of centrum... and you have to take a cab there.. cab fare minimum charge is = 22 dollars..( a prize you have to pay even if you only going 1/2 km..

The funny thing about norway is that people have through time lived seperated by natural borders like mountains, forests and our fjords. This has created alot of different cultures throughout this country in ways of food, dialekts, humour and other things.
My family comes from the mountains in mid-norway near the swedish border and we have a long tradiditon making so-called lefsa, its strongly recommanded.
Osloman20plus: 12th Nov 2006 - 00:45 GMT
Hey, that isn't very much typical food where I come from anymore... Oslo.. Ok, we have hot-dogs still, but "nor"kebab (a mild, crappy version of real kebabs)/shis kebab and vietnam/thai/asian etcetera foods, and general international cuisine, have started to take over for that crap fast food.. This picture was not good, sorry. Kind of sickening

From Wisconsin: 28th Jun 2007 - 17:57 GMT
I was in Norway last Christmas, Had stick meat lamb (I didn't like it at all). The Polsa was awesome! I cant find a dog like that here in Wisconsin. I also like some sort of middle eastern wrap type thing I had in Bergen. Rice pudding was very interesting. Akevitt was good. I ate so much with the family we were with at Christmas dinner. The bread soup was good too. sorry no names for the food but that is my 2 cents. Best wishes to all Norwegians!
Sarah from MN: 27th Jul 2007 - 13:01 GMT
Yes, in Minnesota we eat a lot of lefse. In fact, my hometown has a Lefse factory and it is good stuff! My family also makes it each year around Thanksgiving and Christmas time as that is the usual time of year it has been avaiable to us, in the factories. We also eat Krumkaka, Sandbachels, Rice pudding, Rosettes, Roumegrout and if you can get it past your nose, Lutefisk. Like I said though, these are usually just the Holiday season treats for us. Like them all except the last item...I won't even pass that at the table, but the rest of my family LOVES it.
Sarah from MN: 28th Jul 2007 - 17:56 GMT
I posted a second note following my first yesterday, but somehow it is not there. I said I realized I spelled Rommegrout wrong. Wanting to add that in my area the people go crazy over it, espeically the older folks. I remember working in the nursing home and Eli Syverson was getting in his last stages of life, it was hard to get him to eat, but the nights it was Rommegrout or Sunday Lutefisk he was there, cleaned up his plate and wanted seconds! There are only seven people left in my town that can actually speak Norwegian...wished they would have passed it on to the rest of us.

Interesting notes on Norweigian foods. Can someone explain Akevitt; krumkaka; sandbachels and rosettes? Visiting Norway this February '07. Oslo to Kirkenes, to have a little Arctic adventure. Great experience for a Southern California gal!

Hey guys. I have a report on Norway and was wondering like what the main typical dinner Norwegians have?
hux: 4th Dec 2007 - 14:18 GMT
hi guys, your comments about the typical Norwegian recipe was quite interesting. But I'ld really like to know if hotdogs are the only kind of fast food found around there? if not, what are the varieties that can be found there esp Oslo and Bergen
Peter: 4th Dec 2007 - 15:52 GMT
hux: i may be reaching here, but common sense would seem to indicate that hotdogs are probably not the only kind of fast-food available in oslo, or norway as a whole... im sure they have fast-foods of the commercial ilk that are seemingly in every city in the world...
busker: 13th Dec 2007 - 18:27 GMT
My grandmother is from Norway and lives in minneapolis and every time we visit she makes lefse. I have never tried it on a hot dog, we always put butter and brown sugar on them.
IC: 14th Dec 2007 - 14:36 GMT
Okay, just returned from Norway in September, visiting family. Yes, their hot dogs are popular and very good. There were several things that I had that were typical of the area Kopervik/Kvilhaug. They all seemed so simple but so good. My Dad is from Norway and I would like some recipes also if possible so I can make them for the holidays for him. He is getting up their in years and I would like to spoil him a bit. Any suggestions? Please mention you favorites and any others as sometimes we are unable to get the same ingredients here. Thanks!!

It's Christmas eve, and I'm up late making all the above mentioned things. Am right now ricing the potatoes for making the lefse. Oh, by the way, in Arizona where I live now, (grew up in Minnesota) I now use the lefse griddle mostly for making Mexican tortillas, and fajitas. YUM YUM. But tomorrow, actually, today, but later, we are having herring both kinds, pickled and creamed! YUM YUM YUM
tracy: 7th Jan 2008 - 02:45 GMT
My grandmother is norwegian, we always have lefsa, lutefisk, and (not sure of the spelling) russ-pa-cock phonetic spelling? at the holidays. mmmmmmmm all except the lutefisk!

For all the people doing reports on Norwegian food: I personally like Lefsa alot but thats just me. I don't live in Norway but my family is Norwegian and we have lefsa every Christmas (we buy it because it takes a while to make)
Ekimsknird: 16th Jul 2008 - 22:02 GMT
Yeah my wife and I went to Norway last summer (when the dollar was pretty close to the kroner) and we took out some relatives for pizza. Two large pizzas with 2 or 3 toppings each, 1 pitcher of beer a couple of coffees and ice cream. About $150 as I recall! And VERY small refrigerators - no ice in drinks. Blech! Pretty country though!
snappyhat: 26th Oct 2008 - 13:23 GMT
I come to Norway alot for work. Mostly around Aalesund, and Ulsteinvik. I really love this country and the people I've met. The hot dog is not a diet staple but is very available as a quick snack just about everywhere. I won't eat a hot dog, but that's only because I've seen them being made in the States. I have had Lefsa, and I like it alot, it goes with alot of the local dishes. I think some of the best food I've had here was Ox stew, and the milk in Norway is better than anything in America.
Terri from MN: 23rd Nov 2008 - 20:16 GMT
I miss my hometown at this season. They have a lefse factory right in the town which only operates a few weeks out of the year and they make the BEST lefse...I've tried to make it at home, and it just doesn't turn out right.
Ellen: 7th Dec 2008 - 23:44 GMT
We are selling lefse next Sunday and the money goes to Relay for Life.

Hei allesammen! OK, firstly, Pølser is pronounced (Puhhhl-seh-rr). They sell them at the gas stations instead of greasy nachos and chips, although we have those too, the hot dogs in Norway are really good. Sort of like a costco dog only no steroids in the beef. So if you're a vegetarian, you're sooo out of luck. Anyway, also, the girl in the photo is adorable cute, whoever commented on her hair and whats up with how she's HOLDING her hotdog, eh, dood, we are all different, OK? I personally like her hair and thats how I hold my hotdog too, because you pick that tip up after you spill on your really expensive wool coat as you are standing in the freezing and I mean freezing weather whilst your husband is filling up your car with the last of your savings! OK again, I exaggerate.. but.. its expensive but you just have to go and experience Norway. You will no doubt fall in love with us! Go to Finn.no and click around on the houses and look for east telemark Skien, thats where our family is from..
OK back to the hotdogs.. Holding it, we covered that.. -its just better, the sennep and løk don't get on your hands, coat, car, etc.! I was going to say if you don't know what that stuff is, it's danish fried onions and a sweeter mustard than they have in the states, and it is pretty good for a gas station snack. The little cafeterias all have pølse med brød too, so you are so good to go if you find almost any gate kjøkken. (street kitchen)..
To the man commenting on no ice in the drinks, (duh, you have to ASK for it, as most Norwegians like their colas non diluted .. so they chill them and serve them ice cold. Its like a cold beer, they don't put ice in that, either. Nor do I! :o But of course you can ask for it, silly, just say ICE PLEASE? And they'll bring you a bucket of the stuff. Believe me, we have plenty of ice in Norway.

Hi..I have a very good friend I met in Texas she was an exchange student from Norway I have known her for 11 years now. I have been to Norway 3 times and it never gets old. I LOVE NORWAY. Summer 2008 I took my husband to see it and he enjoyed it alot. Yes Norway is so much different than the US but in a way it's alot better there. They eat healthier and walk more where we are lazy and drive and eat out all the time. We have changed our eating habits and have been eating better since last summer and we feel better. Salami is the BEST there OMG if you ever go they have amazing bread.I always bing some home with me. And Candy yes people that live there love the Candy and I love the Little Piece of Norge the best choc..EVER. I miss Norway can't wait to go back next Easter for Holiday as they would say..Thanks Hope anyone who goes has a great time it's a beautiful country with high prices but it's worth it,
K-dog: 22nd Apr 2009 - 00:43 GMT
What is the name of the Norwegian cheese that is kind of like swiss cheese, but without the holes? I think it starts with an "N"? HELP?!
K-dog: 24th Apr 2009 - 19:26 GMT
No, its got the word knuckle in it...like Knuckle-isk or something. Sorry i'm not good with the spelling. Right now, I'm trying to look for it online. By the way, nice picture Rune! It looks like you don't like the taste very much :(
S from Norway: 26th Apr 2009 - 16:47 GMT
When we translate the letter 'Ø' in eg. our names, we write 'oe'. It is pronounced kind of like when you say those letters together at the same time. My father used to say it is pronounced a little bit like the 'o' in 'worried'.
The cheese you are looking for is'Nøkkelost' (nøkkel=key, ost=cheese).
K-dog: 1st May 2009 - 19:50 GMT
That's right, thanks. Thats one less item for me to worry about. I appreciate it S!

You should really try lefse with butter, sugar and cinnamon.!! I love it! ;) can anyone tell me some things they've heard about Norwegians.? If you were gone describe a typical Norwegian, what would you say? Hehe..Think it's quite interesting;) it's true that Norway is quite expensive.. Met people who's been to all the scandinavian countries, apart from Norway. They all said they wanted to go, but couldn't afford it.. It's a shame really! Cause it really is a beautiful country!:) I'm from a place just outside of Oslo, called Bærum- and I love it!!!:D the æ is an other letter the English alphabet doesn't have.. It is pronunced like the 'a' in bad.. And the written transelation is ae. And the last Norwegian letter is the å. It is kind of pronunced like the first part of the 'o' in the word open.. (in American) imagine you pronunce open åupen.. Maybe someone else can explane it better.. It's written 'aa' ;)
K-dog: 29th Jun 2009 - 23:56 GMT
i would tell you that those scandinavian women can jump pretty high, based on the women's high jump in the olympics. they could probably jump on top of my tool shed's roof, which is about 8 feet high. IT'S RIDICULOUS!!!
K-dog: 30th Jun 2009 - 01:35 GMT
Actually from what I hear, Norwegians are sometimes reffered to as "square-heads," is this true? if so, why are they called this?
Jason: 29th Sep 2009 - 05:41 GMT
Hi y'all my stepfather was norwegian so we had lefse all the time I would eat it for breakfast or for a snack. In fact I could go for some right now but tis the season right around the corner for lefse. I usually just warm it up a bit and spread butter on it and then sprinkle it with sugar and then down the hatch and start another. Rosettes are like a cookie and they are really good also. I haven't tried lutefisk or been near it and I think I would have to be plastered before I tried it just because of what I ahve heard about it. Oh well good luck to all
Rune Willem: 19th Oct 2009 - 00:52 GMT
the cheese your¨re looking for dude,,, is Nøkkelost.. In english it would be something like "key cheese"
Bea: 11th Nov 2009 - 20:32 GMT
This article was or mostly the comments was very interesting to read, because right now I am an norwegian in California, I love California, and the prices, Omg, It is so cheap here, never experienced such low prices before. Norway is really expensive yes, but it is a beautiful conutry with a beautiful nature, and if you go to a grocery store you can always find cheaper alternatives, so then it si not that expensive. I have now been in CA for 3 months, and I have to say it is really hard to get around here, no public transportation and it is far to everything and it is so strict, norway is prettys trict compared to other european countries, but here it is rules for everything. I miss the norwegian candy most, cant find any good chocolate here, and cant find any salty licorice. The scandinavian candy should be sell in america, it is really unique and nothing can be compared to the cnady we have. Miss it so much!

I live in Norway, I'm Norwegian and I'm craving mac n' cheese! Yes we eat lots of pølser in Norway. You can find plenty of pølser stands in town and even in the suburbs (equivalent of a hotdog stand). I like American hotdogs, but somehow Norwegian ones are yummier. Norwegian families tend to make tons of hotdogs for birthday parties, celebrations (e.g 17th of May -the National day), dinners, etc. It's more of a fun food. Kids & adults love them alike! It's best with lomper (similar to lefse) but you can also buy it with the hotdog bun.

Martin: 7th Apr 2010 - 19:10 GMT
for you that want to go to norway, but can't because they can't afford the food, the best way is to make it yourselves. many fresh wares can be bought in the many supermarkets, and the recipes you can ask the people behind the fresh food drives for. this is of course a very odd alternative for tourists, but you can get a traditional norwegian meal for under 20 dollars.

I grew up in Brooklyn New York and my parents always shopped at a norwegian food store. They would buy fiskebollers, which is fish balls. The would also get middags polse. One smoked and one fresh. It was like a ring bologna and it was great. I still shop at a little norwegian food shop in brooklyn but the prices are high. My parents were born in Oslo and we ate like they did in Norway and I still do that today for my grandkids. They love lapskaus and fiskeboller and middags polse. It was good food..

My wife is from Bergen. When we visit her family we are treated to skottekakke, fiskeballe, fiskekakke, pizza, polsa, fiske soupe...in Bergen fish is a big food item. At christmas time they eat penneskotte which is smoked salted lamb ribs. Kalurabe (rhudabagga) is also served at Christmas time. For small meals and snacks, smorbror and open faced sandwich with deli style meat or shrimp...but my favorite: melkesckolate and Hansa!

I stumbled upon this thread just now, and love all of the enthusiastic posts. Wish I had known about "citynoise" earlier in my project. It would have been great to get your views on various foods and culinary practices in Norway. Check me out if you are interested: http://www.eatsmartguides.com

I lived in Norway from 1969 - 1972 (my dad was stationed at the American Embassy in downtown Oslo). We lived in Bekkestua and I went to the Oslo American School there. I have to say that of all the countries I have lived in (add Japan and Holland), Norway was my favorite. The people are very friendly and I found them very easy to get along with. I found this thread because I was trying to research something I remembered eating when I was there, but was not sure on the spelling. Polser met lumper. Lumper were like flour tortillas and the polser were like natural casing hot dogs. We put this sweet mustard on them and rolled them up in the lumper. YUM! We also drank something called Donald Duck Brus. It was like a lemon-lime soda. Someone earlier asked about cheese from Norway that is similar to Swiss cheese. I remember eating a lot of Jarlsberg cheese over there. We would slice it thin and put it on top of a thin layer of rose bottle jam on flatbrod. Very good if you have never had it. And my father learned to make forikol (sp?). This was basically layers of cabbage, lamb, and peppercorns alternating all covered with water and simmered until done. I loved riding the trykk and all the skiing and ice skating we did over there. It was the best time of my life! I would so love to go back and visit some of the places I lived. I also have fond memories of family fishing trips in the Telemark region. Pristine water and untouched wilderness...it was beautiful! Some day....I will go back for a visit. Now to buy that lottery ticket and make some plans.... :)

i am doing a project on Norway and I need to make a menu about foods only produced in Norway. Can someone please help me? Is it true that you eat elk stake in Norway? I am a vegetarian so I don't know.
