The Felleshus canteen offers three different lunch dishes each day - including fresh fish and a vegetarian dish every day - typical Smørrebrød, pastries, fruit, hot and cold drinks as well as Nordic beer and aquavit. The chef behind the daily menu is Kenneth Gjerrud, originally from Norway, also running the Norwegian restaurant Munch's Hus in Berlin. You can try some of his creations every Monday until Friday from 10 to 16. At peak time from 11:30 to 13 clock, the Felleshus is open only to embassy staff.
