For a fun foray into Norway's culinary traditions, look for the stuffed reindeer in the window and pop into this meat, cheese, and fine-foods shop near the town hall in Oslo's historic center. Always clad in a white apron and eager to share the foodie appeal of his country, owner Eirik Braek happily slices off pieces of geitost (a golden-brown Norwegian mountain cheese) and pulls salted dry lamb shank down from its drying mount on the ceiling to shave off a savory sample for visitors. In one room, stockfish hang to dry, while the drying lambs and hams are relegated to another room that's designed to look like a log cabin. You can put together quite an impromptu authentic Norwegian picnic to enjoy along the nearby waterfront with Braek's selection of rich reindeer sausage, herring, and delicious cheeses. Many of the items are packaged to travel, too, including the cloudberry jam, a Norwegian summertime specialty.—Terry Ward
