Worth tasting when visiting the southernmost part of Norway:
Local specialities from Southern Norway

You should sample some of the region’s local specialities when you visit Southern Norway. Many restaurants and cafés serve locally produced food and beverages. Ask the staff to recommend local fare on the menu.

Why not also try some local beer from the local breweries Nøgne Ø or Lindesnes Brygghus? Lindesnes Brygghus is Norway’s southernmost brewery. When you travel through Setesdal, you should look for products marked ‘Smaken av Setesdal’ (a taste of Setesdal) – these products are produced locally in Setesdal.

Visit the local fishmonger to buy fresh prawns and other delicacies from the sea. Follow the example of the locals and enjoy fresh prawns straight out of the bag on the quay.

Keep an eye out for locally produced food such as sausages, ham, cordial, jam and "lefse". Several shops sell locally produced specialities. Restaurants and cafés that serve local food often use the "#SpisSørlandet" logo.
