Jaf's (Oslo, Norway)
Grefsenveien 57, 0487 Oslo, Norway.
Jaf's is a hamburger/kebab chain in Norway, with most of its restaurants in the Oslo area. It has a fairly diverse menu with different sizes and types of hamburgers, chicken dishes, kebabs, pizzas, shakes, and sodas.
I ordered a kebab plate, which cost NOK 95 (12 Euro), which included NOK 10 (1.25 Euro) for eating in. It included a generous portion of 'meat' and fries, a pita, some salad, and a soft drink. The kebab looked like shoarma, but tasted and had the soft texture of kebab. It came covered under a combination of garlic and spicy sauce, which was delicious. The fries were hot and crispy and covered with paprika powder, which gives them a nice kick. Finally, there were enough greens to stuff the pita and enjoy a spicy pita shoarma/kebab.
Although it was my first snack in Oslo, it was also my best and probably best value for money. Sure, 12 Euro is too much for a kebab plate, but at least this one was really tasty!
