[what I ate.] 14-23. December 2018

Whoopsie! Holidays happened and I cut my finger and needed to get stitches and then I had some rough times at work, so this is why I fell behind with posting again. Welp, time to catch up 😀

14. December

Coffee, marzipan pastry.

Chicken curry.

Chicken curry and a coconut yoghurt drink. The drink was great and had actual pieces of coconut in it which was cool.

15. December – Escape Room

Chicken nugget wrap. Coffee.

Fried squid with dip at Noya. We crashed this restaurant after going to a Leonardo DaVinci inspired escape room. Most dishes we had were shared among all of us.

Mediocre beef tartar and super yummy salmon tartar with avocado.

Hubby ate a waguy “burger”. It was alright. Good beef served with lame bread.

I really liked the tempura mushrooms and white fish. The soup was a Nordic style “ramen” where noodles were replaced with strips of squid. The ramen concept was cool, but I only ate a few bites, because the entire thing was inedible salty. Both I and another girl sent these dishes back 😦

The kitchen sent us some tasty yellowtail tataki as an apology. That was a sweet gesture of them.

My replacement dish for the ramen was Nordic shrimp “tacos.” They were okay I guess, but I would in no way call these tacos xD

In general, Noya left me feeling a bit meh… there were some tasty treats and some failures, but in the end, I felt it was too pricey, especially considering that I was still kind of hungry after sharing all the food (as the restaurant concept suggested). Not worth all the hype I have been hearing about this place, sadly.

Puchitto Soda candies. An amusing treat. (I bought a computer pad 😀 Had to show it off, because I am so happy with my newfound ability to now comfortably read fanfiction in bed 😀 )

I had my first day at my new job… uh, have I even mentioned that I am changing jobs? I don’t remember xD Anyway, I am between changing jobs right now. I was so nervous and stressed out, so I didn’t sleep well for the past few nights and had many horrible dreams (mostly how I messed up at the new place and they fired me on the spot). In my worried and tired state, I forgot my work clothes at home… neatly packed and ready to go by the door. How lame is that??? Thankfully boyfriend was sweet enough to bring them to me.

Anyway, my first day went well. The place wasn’t open to public yet, so I just helped with organising things and washing new equipment. Easy-peasy.

Noms in Stavanger day 3… 1. December 2017

 Some traditional Norwegian treat- lefse flatbread with butter and cinnamon. It was really nice. Also, had some porridge with nuts and berries in dark chocolate.

 A green smoothie and a ham sandwich

 We made Japanese style curry with fried sausage xD Like all Estonians, the curry was served with some sour cream :p We also drank some Kriek de Ranke.
