Am tot auzit despre “Inside” cum ca au un hamburger foarte bun astfel ca ieri, fiind la plimbare in oras,  ne-am oprit si noi pe la ei. Adresa nu este greu de gasit, este in apropiere de Zupperia, la adresa Vaskerelvsmauet 7, chiar pe straduta care porneste de la Zupperia in jos spre centrul orasului. Imediat pe stanga se gaseste Inside Live and Rock Cafe si este deschis zilnic incepand cu ora 14:00.

Noi am fost acolo ieri la 14:10 si pana ne-am asezat la masa si pana am verificat putin meniul, localul a fost plin. Este de apreciat ca domnisoara de la bar ne-a atentionat ca mancarea va fi gata in 40 de minute, asa ca puteam alege daca sa asteptam atata sau nu. Bineinteles ca am asteptat, am mai facut poze, am verificat meniul si am savurat atmosfera speciala a barului. La Inside, studentii beneficiaza de 20% reducere, la orice au in meniu, pe baza carnetului de student (trebuie sa il arate inainte de a comanda), se organizeaza seri special de Quiz sau concerte rock live.

La Inside se pot servi salate, sandviciuri, hamburgeri si cateva alte feluri de mancare in aceeasi categorie si ton, se poate alege meniul scazut in carbohidrati (elimina chifla), etc. Preturile variaza intre 44 NOK/6 euro si 195 NOK/ 25 euro, in functie de meniu, gramaj si continut. Inside ofera si asa numitul Suicide Solution – 1 kilogram de carne tocata, cu legume proaspete si cativa cartofi – in total un hamburger de 1,3 kilograme – 449 NOK/60 euro. Acesta se comanda cu 1 zi inainte si este GRATIS daca il mananci in mai putin de o ora. Chiar ca suna a sinucidere curata, dar se pare ca recordul este de 11 minute si 30 de secunde…

In fine, mancarea noastra a venit exact dupa 40 de minute, am comandat 2 Burgeri de marime medie:

– Inside Burger, burger-ul casei cu un dressing de mango – 160gr, 151 NOK/18 euro

– Dr. FeelGood Burger, cu marinata BBQ – 160gr, 157 NOK/ 19 euro

—- servite cu branza cheddar, cartofi prajiti, sos de usturoi si legume proaspete: salata verde, rosii, castraveti.

Eu nu sunt adepta hamburgerilor, nu mi-a placut sa ii mananc si niciodata nu am inteles farmecul acestui fel de mancare, dar hamburgerii de la Inside au fost absolut de-li-ciosi !!! In viata mea nu cred ca am mancat un hamburger mai bun, nici macar in America, suculenti, facuti bine, cu o aroma extraordinara. Sosul de mango ii dadea o aroma dulce/acrisor/fructata, foarte-foarte interesanta, speciala. Singurul lucru care as putea spune ca nu mi-a placut au fost cartofii prajiti, care nu erau proaspeti, cred ca erau din aceia gata congelati, iar dupa prajire au fost cam uleiosi. Nu imi dau seama cat de greu ar fi sa se pregateasca si sa se prajeasca cartofii proaspeti, dar cred ca ar fi extraordinara combinatia. Eu am evitat cartofii prajiti ca sa ma pot bucura de hamburger.

Baia arata foarte bine, curata, miroasea a curat, sapunul lichid curge cam incet din recipient si trebuie asteptat dupa el – poate ca numai in toaleta in care am fost noi restul fiind OK, nu am verificat. Noi am fost acolo chiar la deschidere, am fost printre primii poate ca in serile cu concerte si zeci de persoane, si zeci de litri de bere nu o sa fie exact cum am gasit-o eu :).

Concluzii: Atmosfera din bar este exact ceea ce ar trebui sa fie si la care sa te astepti doar se numeste Live and Rock Cafe, decorat in ton, lumina difuza, pozele sunt facute cu blitul asa ca se vad peretii rosii, dar in realitate era cam greu de observat culoarea :). Mancarea este senzationala, burgerii extraordinari de gustosi, cei mai buni pe care i-am mancat vreodata. Imi place foarte mult ca localul isi pastreaza profilul, adica este un loc unde se maninca hamburgeri si variatiuni pe aceasta tema… nu incearca sa iti vanda si alte tipuri de mancare, sau alte combinatii ciudate care nu ar avea nimic de-a face cu tema barului. Aici se maninca hamburgeri si se maninca bine! Destul de ieftin, portiile le alegi tu cat de mari sa fie, la bar poti servi o gramada de bauturi de toate felurile asa ca nu ratati acest loc, acesti hamburgeri trebuie neaparat incercati .

I kept hearing about “Inside” that they serve a very good hamburger, so yesterday, being in town, we stopped by for a little while. The address is not hard to find, it is next door to the  Zupperia, at the address Vaskerelvsmauet 7, on the same street that starts from Zupperia and goes towards the city centre. Right after that on the left you can find Inside Live and Rock Cafe and it is open daily from 14:00.

We arrived there at about 14:10 and until we found a table and check the menu a little, the place was already full. It was nice that the miss from the bar warned us that the food would not be ready before 40 minutes, so we could chose whether to wait so long or not. Of course we waited, took some pictures, checked the menu and savoured the special atmosphere of the bar. At Inside, all students have a 20% discount, for everything on the menu, based on the student card (which must be shown before the order), special quiz and live rock concerts are also organized.

At Inside you can eat salads, sandwiches and hamburgers or dishes in the same category, you can choose a low carbo menu (basically without the bread bun) and so on. The prices vary from 44 NOK//6 euro and 195 NOK/ 25 euro, depending on the dish, weight and content. Inside offers the so-called Suicide Solution – 1 kilogram of minced meat, with some fresh vegetables and a few potatoes –  in total a hamburger of 1,3 kilo – 449 NOK/60 euro. This has to be ordered one day in advance and it comes free if you manage to eat it in less than an hour. It really sounds like suicide, but it seems that the record there is 11 minute and 30 seconds…

Anyway, our food came exactly after 40 minutes, we ordered 2 medium size burgers:

– Inside Burger, the burger of the house with a mango dressing – 160gr, 151 NOK/18 euro

– Dr. FeelGood Burger, with a BBQ marinade – 160gr, 157 NOK/ 19 euro

—- both served with cheddar cheese, fried potatoes, garlic dressing and fresh vegetables: green salad, tomatoes and cucumbers.

I am not that into hamburgers, I never enjoyed eating them and never understood the charm of this kind of food, but the hamburgers at Inside were absolutely de-li-cious !!! I don’t believe I ever ate a better hamburger in my life, not even when I was in the US, juicy, well done, with an extraordinary flavour. The mango sauce gave it a sweet/sour/fruity aroma, very very interesting and special. The only thing I could say that I did not like were the fried potatoes, which were not that fresh, I am guessing they were the frozen kind, and after frying were a bit oily. I don’t know how difficult it would be to prepare and fry some fresh potatoes, but I guess the combination would be extraordinary. This time I avoided the potatoes so that I can enjoy the hamburger.

The bathroom looked very well, clean , smelled like clean, the liquid soap was dripping quite slow and had to wait a bit for it to come out of the dispenser – maybe it was only in the toilet we were in, I have not checked the rest. We were there just after opening, between the first customers, so maybe after long evenings with concerts and dozens of people, after tens of litres of beer it might not look the same way I found it :).

Conclusions: The bar atmosphere is exactly what it should be and what you might expect, it called Live and Rock Cafe after all, decorated accordingly, diffuse lighting, the pictures I took were with the flash so the walls appear red, but in reality it was difficult to observe the colour :). The food was sensational, extraordinarily tasty burgers, the best I ever tried. I like that the place keeps its profile, meaning that it a place where you can eat hamburgers and variations of it… they do not try to sell or serve other kinds of food, or odd combinations that to not have anything linked to the bar theme. Here you can eat burgers and you can eat well! Pretty cheap, the portions can be chosen, at the bar you can serve different types of drinks, so do not miss this place, these hamburgers have to be tried! 5 lilies from me!
