Palmyra is made by native Sri Lankan food lovers, where they maintain their food traditions. I tried their small, cozy restaurant and chose their vegetarian option. It contains rice With salad, pappadam and various curries. It is a completely vegan option indeed, and quite affordable, only 110 NOK.
As a child in Sri Lanka, we would grow with my mother making so many different types of curries, and we got used to that custom. When we came to Norway, we missed Our traditional Foods and wanted to create the Magic Our mother created. Accordingly, that lead to the creation of Palmyra where we make our most traditional dishes.

A little hidden behind Jakob Kulturkirke you will find the entrance to the little green café, in the same building as DOGA. Everything they make is vegan and they also have touches of raw food. The menu is small and varied and they go to great lengths to accommodate you with allergies.
We recommend their Loaded Flatbread for 139 kroner. Flatbread with parsley and basil pesto, fermented tomato ketchup, their own mozzarella, pickled red onion, fresh champignon and rocket leaves. What to drink? Try their kombucha!

Dinner has served food from the Szechuan and Cantonese cuisine in the heart of Oslo since 1989! Traditionally, a Chinese meal includes many dishes that are shared between guests at the table to form a social setting around the meal. Dinner is the place for trying out an authentic Cantonese food experience! I recommend their vegetarian option “Sprø Fristelser” for 175 kroner. A combination of the best seasonal vegetables. Wok-fried with ginger.
