Where the local vegans go
Posted on 06 / 02 / 2014
I have been going to this store for about 15 years. It's an institution in Bergen and pretty well-known in all of Norway (among veg*ns that is). They are expensive, yes even by Norwegian standards, but they have items no-one else carries so they are able to do so. They have ecological and locally produced fruit and vegetables, gluten free foods (mostly frozen...) and plenty of fake meat as well as nuts, seeds, skincare products. They also have a section for bodybuilders, though that is mostly whey-based so ok for vegetarians but not vegans - they do carry a vegan one though. All in all I love this store because I can get soy products in town, all kinds of gluten free flours etc. Being a vegan and gluten free is always a problem (seitan get away from me!) and sadly, out of all the 10+ sausages they have none are gluten free. Some options are there though, and good marinated tofu for cooking. They have some non-dairy cheese too although not the best. When it comes to buying tofu regularly, you will find it a lot cheaper in asian stores, my favourite being at danmarks plass.
