    Michel Seylmager`s Hus: Porsgrunns beste mat

    by Svartkledd Written Mar 18, 2006

    Michel Seylmager`s Hus er opprinnelig et gammelt seilmakerversted fra 1750, det eldste seilmakerhuset i landet blir det påstått. Og enda bedre, huset ligger der det engang ble bygd like ved Porsgrunnselva. Veggene, tak og gulv bærer preg av fordums tid, men så er også restauranten stedet for de store anledninger.

    Favorite Dish: I usually go for the fish here.

    Kafè Caspara: Porcellained out

    by Saagar Written Mar 6, 2005
    Cafe & shop entrance

    This cafe is located at the Porcellain Factory's main outlet store "Magasinet" a bit in the back of the store. Chance is that you have very glassy eyes by the time you arrive here, ripe for a coffee or something.
    Caspara doubles as a factory workers cafe, so the fare beyond regular cafe stuff is also sturdy Norwegian lunch-paket style food with open-faced rolls and sandwiches with spread.

    Opening hours the same as for the shops.

    Favorite Dish: Waffles were good here, a winner with hot chocolate...

    It was apparent that toward of the end of the day the stock of food runs out. Toward closing hours for a late meal or fresh roll or so, opt for someplace else to eat.

    Smuget: Fish restaurant

    by Saagar Updated Mar 1, 2005
    Good seafood inside...

    Down by the harbour I finally found one sea food specialist restaurant. However, the opening hours did not suit my schedule, so i never got to taste their food.
    I guess things are quite seasonal here, too, as is my guess for all restaurant life in Porsgrunn - February doesn't give any spring or summer mood and leisure time.
    Nice outdoor spot (backside) for warm summer evenings...

    Favorite Dish: Their fish soup seemed to be a good deal as a lunch. Price level indicated for lunch dishes.

    Eigil's Pub: Out for a beer

    by Saagar Written Feb 28, 2005
    Eigil's

    If I was let loose and could have my beer where it fancied, I'd go to Eigil's Pub for a beer. Definitiely a brown place, with live music. My female company backed off after a peep through the curtains.

    Good bakes

    by Saagar Written Feb 23, 2005
    Inside here somewhere

    The apparently best bakery in town is located to the far end of the shopping mall "Downtown" (what a name!) in Porsgrunn. Any kind of cake and bread you'd wish to taste withing the framework of Norwegian conservativism can be had here.
    A bit of French and Italian slang is getting into the picture, too.
    Seems to be a very popular hangout for newly-baked mothers and middle aged women shoppers. Watch for sharp elbows...

    Favorite Dish: Good take-away or eat-there salami ciabattas and hand and cheese baguettes.
    Good on coffee and hot chocolat, too.

    Cafe Lily Ann: Best - and only! - Chinese restaurant in Porsgrunn

    by Saagar Updated Feb 23, 2005
    Cafe Lill mary

    Finally, a good quality Chinese restaurant that doesn't compromise spice and taste with Norwegian blandishness.
    Very odd interior decorations, with a mix of south Chinese dark wood panneling and ornaments with Greek nubiles and Norwegian pub--style sitting arrangements and tables.
    South and Hunan Chinese dishes with an emphasis on hot spice and black pepper. However,covered a wide span of south and central China on the menu. Some Norwegian mainstays as well.
    Enjoyed very friendly service and relatively low prices.

    Favorite Dish: Tasted shrimp in hoisian sauce, sweet&sour dressed prawn in hot sauce of the house, spicy shredded beef in hot black pepper sauce.

    Enjoyed very tasty sticky rice - rarely do any aromatic and superb rice find its way to Norway's Chinese restaurants.

    La Piazza: Best Pizza in town - and more

    by Saagar Written Dec 22, 2004
    2nd floor, La Piazza

    Real pizza in this country of frozen spongy, pizza? Yes, here in Porsgrunn!
    A nice place with two "departments", one for the decent crowd for prime evening dining (the menu has a good selection of what seemed high quality and upmarket-typisch Italian dishes) and a bar/winter garden area for those who drop by for a pizza or other snack or quick bite during day time - I qualify.

    Favorite Dish: Pizza Toscana was as expected and promised in an italian restaurant. Quick service, well-cooled beer and nice atmosphere and people here.

    I'd be happy to come back here for any celebratory dinner: deer, reindeer fillet, and interesting sea food items featured prominently on the menu for about NOK 200-230, a good 100 down from similar food standards in Oslo.
