Tacosgiving 2018

The holiday season is in full swing, with Thanksgiving just gone and streets lighting up in anticipation of Christmas. On Sunday, Eirik and I invited our family over for a Thanksgiving dinner. We opted to skip the turkey this year in favour of tacos to add a little touch of Norwegian tradition to our American celebration. Here are some pictures from our Tacosgiving

The FireLake experience

The FireLake experiece

“Created by nature, inspired by fire”

Fire played a vital role to the Vikings, not only for survival purposes like meal preparation, but also in discussions, folklore, and even death. Viking funerals often involved cremation, whether the dead were buried in the ground or sent out into the open sea. At the heart of Stavanger, where the Vikings once roamed, FireLake Grill House returns to these roots by providing a unique grill experience that encourages amicable conversation and familial sharing.

“Connecting ancient Norwegian food culture to you”

You can tell that FireLake takes pride in its vision because the staff takes time to explain the restaurant concept to you — how everything, from the name to the menu items to the portions, revolves around the idea of fire uniting people. Here, you can really take time to enjoy your meal and your company.

From the impeccable service to the delectable taste and presentation of food, FireLake provides an outstanding experience for locals and visitors to Stavanger alike. I highly recommend the 12-hour brisket with FireLake rub (pictured above).

If I ever visit Stavanger again, FireLake is definitely a stop I will make! 😉
