Cinderella, cinderella........

When driving to and from our summer home at the southern coast of Norway, there is a striking absence of good places to eat by the road - with one exception. Cinderella café and restaurant at Brokelandsheia is known for its good food, and has been there for years. First at Fiane, another location by the old E 18, then by the newly built main road further inland.

We have stopped there twice, lately, to eat dinner on our way back to Oslo. You pay one price, close to NOK 200 (€25), and then you may eat as much as you want from the buffet.

Plate 1 - surf and turf

When approaching a buffet, you are often tempted to mix everything. I am afraid I was tempted to make a little surf and turf on this plate. Thinly sliced, fried beef, deep fried shrimps, baked, creamed rice with onions and cheese, onion rings and a few dauphinoise potatoes.

Very filling and appetizing - indeed!

Plate 2 - lasagna al forno and sausages

Garfield the cat is not the only one that loves a creamy lasagna - I do!

Lasagna is the ultimately comfort food, and in spite of the missing bechamel sauce, this lasagna was de-li-ci-ous! Many caterers and restaurants forget that a proper lasagna must have separate layers of tomato sauce and white creamy bechamel sauce.

I also picked a few bites of fried sausages, and with a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers, and a good dressing you left the table content and ready to drive on.
