Norwegian delicacies foreigners can't stomach
Smalahove. Norway's sheep-head special.
15:23 CEST+02:00
Norwegian cuisine is generally sneered at by the country's Scandinavian neighbours. This is unfair, as some of it is very tasty. But here's a list The Local has put together of 15 dishes foreigners find particularly challenging.

The list, available here, mixes outlandish dishes made from things like sheeps' heads or fermented fish, with the boring but unpalatable, drawing on a group of Oslo expats for their opinions.  

Feel free to comment on any glaring omissions or complain about unfairly maligned favourites.
