Beaching and eating at beach club blooming in Bergen


Yesterday I blogged about my wonderful weekend escape to blooming hotel in Bergen.

Presentation is everything

Chief cook Thom Groenendal serves up the most beautiful, colorful plates. Inspired by his travels and global flavours he presents unpretentious, soul food made from scratch with an international sizzle. Think mackerel ceviche with avocado, bulgur, lime and red pepper. Or sample the salmon millefeuille with orange and tomatoes. My favourite was the portobello with regional goat cheese, bulgar and zucchini. The lamb was also a big winner. And did I mention the garlic gambas already? I literally loved everything!

Lunch

The next day we went back for lunch which was also a treat. Pokebowls, and burito bowls in the sun with the sound of the seagulls and waves in the background. Can it get any better than this?
