Egon Restaurant (Oslo, Norway)
Karl Johans Gate 35, 0162 Oslo, Norway
Egon Restaurant is a Norwegian chain of some 25 American-style restaurants throughout the country. It has a big and broad menu, mostly combining Italian and American dishes: pasta, pizza, burgers, salads, and steaks. I visit the one on the most touristic street in downtown Oslo.
I get the Egon Burger (NOK 225 or $27): a 160g burger with mushrooms, onion, bacon, and pepper sauce as well as a side of fries. The burger has a great taste, but more like eating a soft pepper steak on a soft and delicious bun. The fries taste a bit old and bland.
It is expensive, even for Norwegian standards, but this might be in part because of the location. Overall pretty good food and the Egon Burger is original.
