I stayed in Norway for 2 weeks and a few of those days were spend in Bergen. I didn’t make it out to Oslo, so I can’t speak for how vegan friendly it is there, but Bergen was by far the easiest city to eat in as a vegan.
There are only a couple of fully vegan restaurants in Bergen, but a lot of places with vegan options. We also didn’t have problems finding vegan snacks and toiletries at the supermarkets. There weren’t a lot of vegan cheese/meats, but we did find some frozen vegan meals, butter, snacks, oat milks, etc. to make some of our own food, too.
1. Dirty Vegan
I’m going to start with my favorite place! Dirty Vegan is located not too far from Bryggen. It was about a ten minute walk from where I was staying, which was great! They have a full vegan menu and are a fast food joint. Seriously, this food was amazing! So tasty!
Vegan vacation is the second place in Bergen that is 100% vegan. The owner is so nice and makes everything in house. Including the cheeses. That vegan cheese platter is to die for, I highly recommend it! The vegan salmon is made with carrots, which is interesting. It had a nice smoky flavor to it and the texture was very close, too.
3. Daily Pot
Daily Pot is a restaurant with vegan options. They have soup, salad, sandwiches and even cheesecake, for vegans. My friend got the vegan sandwich and I opted for the vegan protein bowl salad. Both were delicious! I also had a slice of cheesecake, which was very tasty 😊
I didn’t get the chance to eat at Kroathai, but my friend did! She said it was really good. They have a good grasp on veganism, so it’s pretty easy to eat here as a vegan. Unfortunately I don’t have any photos from here, but there are some on HappyCow, if you follow the link there.
5. Los Tacos
Los Tacos is so good! We ate here twice (at the Stavanger location, too) and I don’t know which to recommend more, the burrito or tacos. Tacos might be the winner… but it’s hard to choose! They were both delicious, and the staff inside were so nice.
These are just a few that we had the chance to try out in Bergen, there are many more. While walking around, we saw a Chinese restaurant that advertised vegan food on the window. I’m not sure if they’re transitioning to 100% vegan, or if it’s just options, but there are a lot of options to go around in this charming city. Check out HappyCow, to see the other establishments you can grab some vegan eats at 😊
