RESTAURANTS IN COPENHAGEN: MOUTH WATERING SUGGESTIONS
The Palaegade is a classic restaurant in the historic center of Copenhagen. Here you can sample some Nordic specialties such as Smorrebrod, an “open” sandwich – combinations of ingredients such as blue cheese, pear and hazelnuts, roast beef, pickles and radishes are placed and served under a slice of bread.
For lunch, we also serve Aquavita, a kind of typical Danish brandy enriched with aromatic herbs. For dinner you can order more exquisite dishes such as poached sole with cucumber, potatoes and white fish roe sauce. Accompany with one of the wines from the discerning restaurant selection.
The Uformel (in Portuguese, informal) belongs to a restaurant chain in which also includes the Palaegade. However, contrary to our previous suggestion, and as its name implies, Uformel is an unpretentious restaurant, with more affordable prices, but that keeps the focus on the quality of the products.
Taste the mullet with grilled corn, herbs and yogurt or steak tartar with pickles of mushrooms and black pepper. The 15 dishes change according to the season and the ingredients used come from domestic producers. In addition, Uformel has also gained fame thanks to its cocktails, which you can try before you start the meal.
The specialty of the Neighborhood is the pizzas, and they are not any pizzas. These are modern interpretations of the Italian classic, lighter and crisper, organic and greener. The pasta is reduced to about half of a traditional pizza and the ingredients are mostly fresh vegetables, pickled vegetables, fresh cheese, fresh pesto, seafood and high-quality meats. There are also cocktails and yes, you guessed it – they are also organic, with fresh and seasonal fruit, herbs and vegetables. If you prefer, opt for a natural juice.
The experience of making a meal in the Neighborhood is also worth it for the space. Food is served at long tables, where people sit right next to each other. The goal is to foster the spirit of good neighborliness and community.
COPENHAGEN STREET FOOD
We could not fail to suggest, on this list of restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen, the passage through Copenhagen Street Food, with its food trucks, coffees, beer and other drinks. Some of the participants serve food of organic origin, but here what matters most is the taste, albeit ally, always, a component of sustainability. And you can sample specialties ranging from Korea to Mexico, from Italy to Scandinavia, at affordable prices.
In addition, you will get to know Papiroen (Paper Island), the small island that once served as a paper warehouse and which today houses not only Copenhagen Street Food but also several art galleries, area businesses creative and trendy cafes.
