Oslos last remaining hotdog kiosk serves up boiled sausage with fiery mustard. Its cheap, comforting and savours explosively marvellous
Forget hygge, the cosiness of enjoying life’s simple amusements. The original Nordic lifestyle trend was all about the ultimate in convenience meat: hotdogs. The Syverkiosken is an Oslo landmark. The kiosk, near to Alexander Kiellands plass, has been serving hotdogs since 1979. And with costs starting from 20 krone( PS1. 90 ), it’s one of the city’s cheapest snack options.
But there’s more to the Norwegian desire of hotdogs than only a inexpensive snack. There used to be more than 40 such kiosks around township but late-opening Syverkiosken is the last one standing, fending off cheap hotdogs from convenience stores with its household recipes and retro-fashion style.
” Hotdog kiosks have always been a part of our culture, a place where people from all walkings of life stand beside each other ,” says owned Erlend Dahlbo.” For Norwegians, real hotdogs are the savour of nostalgia .”
