    Vollen Bakeri: A genuine local, top quality bakery

    by Saagar Updated Nov 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Vollen bakeri

    This is a wonderful local bakery that produces their own stuff , not some kind of factory outlet. They are linked to Kafe Oscar (see my tip).
    They produce a wide selection of fairly traditional cakes and breads, and do things by order, too.
    They are consistently using ecologically certified raw materials.

    Favorite Dish: Youghurt bread and the "Vollen Bread".
    And terrifyingly, a lot of different cakes....

    For Christmas I will order their "kransekake", a towering dry almondpaste cake (not marzipan) that is absolutely delicious.... They apparently have success with making these to order.
    Open: Mon-Sat 9-17, Sun 10-17 during regular working hours.

    Big Horn Steak House: For carnivores....

    by Saagar Written Nov 20, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Big Horn Steak House is a chain restaurant that just opened a branch in Asker, too.
    The specialty is beef steaks, but they do have lots of variations of that theme, as well as some game meat and good salads.
    You write your own order where you indicate how you want your steak done. Quite an informal place, and the prices aren't over the top. Slightly western decor inside.

    Opening hours: Mon-Wed 16-22, Thu-Sat 16-23, Sun 15-22

    Favorite Dish: Mexican beef steak - grilled

    Super Kebab House: At Bjerkås, surprisingly tasty food, big menu

    by Saagar Written Mar 15, 2013

    I am not a fast food fan. But there is fastfood and fast food. And some food you reserve for fasting, and some places you go after a fast.
    What's behind a menu? Good food entrepreneurs who come out of a family cooking tradition and who love satsified customers. and no chain restaurants....
    For the average fast kebab eaters there are kebabs, and large servings. The finer script on the meny reads also Indian food. In this fairly unlikely localtion for indian food, none of the Indian food has been left floating in a pan for half a day. Nor du you get the same sauce on yur chicken curry as with the rogan josh. It's all cooked to order. Forget the kebabs - the Indian food here is great, affordable and honest.
    Open Mon-Fri: 11:00-22:00; Sat-Sun: 12:00-22:00.

    Favorite Dish: Lamb curry. Very good. The other stuff is also good. Big servings, all condiments arrive unasked for, like raita.
    Take out, delivery, too.

    Peppes Pizza, Sandvika Storsenter: Bad service, mediocre pizza

    by Saagar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Peppes Pizza is a nationwide chain of pizza restaurants with generally ok prices and average or above pizzas. this particular one is located within the shopping centre Sandvika Storsenter and has tired and hungry shoppers as their captive market. When we arrived we were ignored completely, and removed the food waste, plates and glasses left by past customers, cleaned off the table with a rug ourselves, then went to order at the counter. The waiter cum teller seemed overworked, the busboy absentminded and slow. The seating arrangements are ok, but the main impression was very much that we do not loike customers here. I wonder about the pay level of Peppe's???

    Favorite Dish: The pizza menu is actually quite good and extensive, but we chose the all-you-can-eat pizza buffet which also included a salad bar. There was also some hard-to-define lasagna-like pasta present. my impression is that they do not put their best pizzas on the buffet table. If you are a pizza connosieur choose a different place or something from the top of the range. And perhaps at another place than at the Sandvika Storsenter. There is one more in Sandvika. The buffet was ok as long as you are aware of the cheaper pizzas they lay out there, and the price is ok.

    Nesbru Kebab: Consistently voted best kebab place

    by Saagar Updated Feb 16, 2010

    Nesbru Kebab has a long reputation of being the best kebab outlet this side of Oslo, if not over an even wider area. It is off E18, inside the business streets of Billingstad/Fekjan not too far from the big marts of IKEA and Smart Club.

    Favorite Dish: This is a kebab plane and kebab is what they have, plus condiments plus some other fast food dishes. Even if I aM not a kebab person, I liked what they served here and their pride of what the owners and workers here do!

    several: Cost of beer in Asker

    by Saagar Updated Apr 4, 2011

    The price difference of beer ranges up to NOK 30 for half a litre. If you are a beer dog, beware of Baracoa outside Asker Kulturhus (centre) that have some kind of happy hour until 5 pm, NOK 46 per 0,5 L. Not exactly a bargain, but... The same place charges NOK 53 for the same after 5 pm. Pavarotti at Vollen, a very nice and maritime eatery charges NOK 58 for its pint, Misto in Asker centre NOK 59. The most expensive is at snobbish Holmen Fjordhotell where a 0,44 L cost NOK 55=NOK 69 per half litre, enough for an involuntary mouth to mouth resuciation afterwards. Hvalstrand, also upmarket, but at least you know what you are in for, will charge NOK 49 per 0,4 L= NOK 61 for the pint.

    Skytterkollen: Food excellence - game

    by Saagar Written Jul 29, 2006
    Skytterkollen is a bit to the left of this lake.

    Coopting a neigbouring municipality restaurant again, Skytterkollen serves excellent food. So good that people travel from afar to get here.
    Serves up hearty meals based on game and fish. Their red deer steaks are great.
    Need to prebook during weekends.
    Located near a shooting range, and originally established as some sort of club house for the shooting club, it is now a restaurant and a day conference centre in its own right.
    Excellent hikig nearby, and many people combine a day hike with dinner upon returning to the Skytterkollen car park.

    Favorite Dish: Wild game, deer or roe deer preferably.

    Tveter Gård (farm): Restaurant in the countryside

    by Saagar Updated Jul 29, 2006

    Tveter Gård is a municipally owned farm at Semsvannet lake just above Asker centre. While farming jher is obsolete, there are other activities in tha area. Considered the most beauriful farm in Asker. The main market is the local one and they regularly hold Sunday dinners, special events, holidays and connect food service to their other cultural and sports activities. Linked to the reknown (in oslo area at least...) restaurant company "Sult". See web site for further details.

    Favorite Dish: Specials vary from time to time and season to season.

    Pose og Sekk or Vollen Grillservice: Your own BBQ party

    by Saagar Written Aug 14, 2006

    Asker is a summer consicentous community and a local friend told me when I needed a part-size grill/BBQ that surely there must be someone renting out such ones?
    So, through local research I came across the Vollen Grillservice also called Pose og Sekk, run by Christian Reffheng in Heggedal.
    Cost of a medium sized grill (I did for 25 people), coal, delivery, cleaning and pick up was NOK 725 per day/night.
    They can also do the actual provisioning of the food, the BBQing etc. also, but it is not a real catering company. Odd place, difficult access etc no problem.

    Dolly Dimple's: Dolly Dimple's in Asker

    by Saagar Written Jan 8, 2006

    Dolly Dimple's is part of a large internatinal chain and thus not very exciting, and rather predictable. But they do good quick dinners and very good pizza for the Askerianians ("askerbøringene").
    They have a sit-down option, take home-option or they-bring-option.

    Favorite Dish: Got to be pizza.

    Kosmos: Mexican out, Kosmos in!

    by Saagar Written Jan 8, 2006

    After saying good-bye to our Mexican fav Mucho Mas (you still find their restaurant in Oslo), Kosmos has moved in on the same premises.
    Aiming at being a family restaurant for a modern and well travelled clinetele, there isn't much that sounds like Norway on the menu. Nor do they seem to have much in terms of a food line. Very eclectic, in other words, and something for everybody, presumably. Very close to an American diner. Sort of place I think I would tire from, I like profile and ethnicity and strength in one direction or the other.

    Favorite Dish: Tuna salad is good here!

    Misto: Misto, a place I have not been to...

    by Saagar Written Jan 8, 2006

    OK, got to admit it; I never went here.
    But let me list it for future review:

    Misto mixes a cafè and restuarnat concept, they do parties, Christmas buffets and catering, take-out, contains a delicatessen shop and food gift shop. How could I have missed it????

    Favorite Dish: - need to try it out first...

    Haveli: Asker's only South Asian

    by Saagar Updated Jun 17, 2005
    Haveli

    Haveli will probably object to being ticked off as Indian restaurant (VT categories...). They proudly advertise themselves as Haveli Pakistani Tandoori Restaurant. With a sizeable Pakistani local population also frequenting Haveli, the food got to be good.
    Given that apart from Nagina's over in Sandvika it's also the only South-Asian (diplomacy employed here...) food restaurant in Asker, there is little other choice...
    Outdoor serving also.
    Open Mon-Sat 15-23, Sun 14-22.

    Favorite Dish: Tandooris here are good.

    Intermezzo Cafe/restaurant: Lunch in Asker centre - Intermezzo

    by Saagar Updated Mar 10, 2011

    Intermezzo is located in Trekanten shopping centre.
    The food is youngish oriented, international with a bit of fashion flavour to it. Here you can get a variety from sushi to tapas, but it's the lunch menu that stands out. Good set lunches.
    Open Mon-Thu 11-24, Fri, Sat 11-01, Sun 15-23.

    Age limit 20 yrs after 8pm.

    Favorite Dish: Lunch menus. Food in a dead shopping centre after hours isn't my thing.
    I went here recently again, with others including children. The service was very bad, waiters inflexible when it came to adjust the food to children's needs, the portions small and prices high. I felt there was more focus style and design and Asican chic rather than service and actual food for the stomach.
    Not recommended for people with children.
