Halaigh Whelan-McManus – Restaurant Hot Shop


Originally from Ireland, now resident in Oslo, Norway, Halaigh Whelan-McManus is passionate about seasonal food. Having cut his teeth in the legendary Noma in Copenhagen, Denmark, Whelan-McManus has taken what he learned there and forged his own culinary identity with skill and prowess. From Noma, Halaigh moved to Norway to become head chef of the renowned Maaemo in Oslo.

Halaigh is now head chef and proprietor of Hot Shop in Oslo. Hot Shop is one of the latest additions to Oslo’s semi-fine dining scene; informal restaurants offering high quality fare. The menu is simple, five courses and maybe some bonus bites if you’re lucky. It’s straight-forward, letting the quality of the ingredients shine.
