Is there fast food in Norway?

Norway fast food restaurants serve a variety of traditional and unique cuisines. Most places such as McDonald’s, Burger King, and Subway sell their “American-style” burgers and sandwiches for between $3-$5.

Even though the price may vary from country to country, it should be noted that fast food is more expensive in Norway. This is because Norway has the highest food prices in the world. Another example of fast food chains that serve traditional Norwegian cuisine is Spanish restaurants like Taco-Arena, which offer Norwegian ingredients such as reindeer meat and whale meat.

Even though this may sound weird to some people, these items are considered delicacies for Norwegians and other people in the Nordic regions. If you’re wondering, whale meat is high in protein and low in fat. This is why it’s perfect for those who are health-conscious!

The Bottom Line

Have you been to Norway? I was there last week, and the one thing that surprised me was how much fast food in Norway. It seems like a paradoxical situation because of all the health-conscious folks living in this country, but it’s true!

The only exception is the little kiosks selling hot dogs for kroner 20. Otherwise, burgers at gas stations go for about 60kr (about $9). Weird right? Anyway, if you have any questions or want more information on my experience, please comment below.
