    Copenhagen - Told & Snaps

    by ant1606 Updated Jul 9, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although "smørrebrød" (open sandwich) is more of a lunch thing, it's not a crime having it for dinner as well and something that shouldn't be missed in this part of the world. Easy and delicious, various herring suggestions are the most popular servings.
    Beer varieties are brewed in-house and several "snaps" flavors seem to be homemade as well. Served in a small "shot" glass, this strong spirit is generally made from grains or potatoes.
    Eating and drinking here isn't easy on the wallet but Denmark is notoriously expensive, even more so regarding alcohol, therefore pigging out is unlikely to happen.
    Great ambience and location in the middle of Nyhavn, it's a busy place worth the wait for a table.

    Traditional Danish Snaps: Try Danish Akvavit!

    by lbhspatriot Written Jun 10, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Akvavit (the water of life) is a distilled liquor which alcohol content varies from 42 to 45% and it's produced and very popular throughout Scandinavia. Akvavit might not be of everyones taste though; clear in colour it is very dry in flavour and has strong herbal taste. There are many different flavours you can find. One of the best comes from Aalborg and it is a must have for everybody visiting Denmark. The Aalborg Akvavit in particular is more fruity but contains coriander, carmel, cirtrus note and a hint of aniseed.

    Someone might find it interesting that it is the only brand exported from Denmark, as it is produced by Danish Distilleries, a private organization granted the sole right to produce alcohol under a monopoly of the Danish government.

    Akvavit is best drunk chilled and accompanied with smorgasbrod (Danish sandwiches) :)

    Restaurant Noma (Best in the world 2010 and 2011): at the gastronomic top of Denmark (and WORLD)

    by TheView Updated Feb 18, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With a determination to create a Nordic modern kitchen the Copenhagen restaurant Noma have reached the attention of the gastronomic circles and are at present valued as one of the ultimately best in the world.

    With this status you can imagine that it has a price tag and you have to reserve a table sometime in advance (that is more mounts ahead) but go to there webpage.

    Voted the World best restaurant 2010, 2011 -?

    Nadia's House of Bagels: perfect for breakfast or light lunch

    by marielexoteria Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The title says it all. Nadia's bagels won't disappoint you. They prepare the bagel on order so you get it fresh and if you're lucky sometimes even with a "just baked" bun taken from the oven while you wait.

    Favorite Dish: The bagel of my preference is #14 on their menu: a bagel with prosciutto, mozzarella slices, pesto, ruccola lettuce, tomato and cream cheese.

    Jensens bøfhus: cheap food and great tasting

    by tracknfield Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Jensen's Bøfhus is a great price and great tasting food. You can buy lunch for 50 kroner and it is too much food to eat. This restraunt is in two places in Odense. The first place is in the city and the other is in the Rosengård centre. I ate here many times with my friends after school or if we had a break during school.

    Favorite Dish: They serve typical danish meals of potatoes, bøf(beef) and sauce. It is my favorite, they also serve other food such as hambugers. The best is the ice cream desert you can buy. It cost 20 kroner for the ice cream and you can get as much as you want with lots of toppings.

    Take away food is cheap.

    by cachaseiro Updated Jan 8, 2011

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take away food is much cheaper than restaurants.
    Take away places are often owned by emmigrant families who are ready to work long hours and have a few kids to help out and that makes the them very competetive.
    Ethnic take aways used to be a big city thing, but these days you see them in most small towns too, so you don´t need to starve even if you are on a budget.

    Favorite Dish: If you want danish food eat fish.
    it's one the things that danes really know how to prepare.

    Hard Rock Cafe COPENHAGEN: Rock My world!

    by lbhspatriot Updated Feb 16, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hard Rock is my favourite around the world! Groovy staff, nice food and amazing atmosphere is what lures me inside this place! Hard rock in Copenhagen is not that different from what I've seen in Warsaw, Dublin or Philadelfia. Great interiors, delicous Mojitos and a perfect dish for two the Combo! It is rather expensive but worth dropping by at least once. And of course check their store for some souvenirs.

    Favorite Dish: Hot chicken wings... or the Combo Dish (for two!).

    Saeby - have tasty fish and chips on the Marina

    by lbhspatriot Updated Feb 16, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I don't remember the name of this place but it is the only restaurant directly on the Marina in Saeby. The food there is tasty and, when comes to Danish standards; cheap. They offer delicious and fresh fish and other sea food. This is nothing fancy, just a fish and chips diner on the pier but the ambiance is great and the food even better! So if you are in Saeby, drop by and bon apetit!

    Favorite Dish: Try fish and chips of course!

    Noma: The Best Scandinavian

    by Ekahau Updated Jun 27, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness



    I asked around looking for a great Scandinavian meal and was told by many that Noma the only Michelin 2 star in Denmark was the best. So, I went for lunch and was very happy with my choice. They call the food "A Nordic Sensation” and I discovered from reading the walls that it was rated the 3rd best place dinning experience in the world. Anyway it was good for sure and the Chef René Redzepis produced some fine Scandinavian food for this VTer. Noma has a beautiful location.




    Favorite Dish: I had "grilled lam" Wild herbs and fjord vegetables along with Rhubarb and beets meringue and hip rose.

    all which was presented very nicely -- a very classy place.

    Hot dog stand: good "French" hot dogs

    by marielexoteria Updated Jun 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A "French" hot dog is the classic hot dog we know and love (or at least I do hehe), but instead of having the bread cut on the side, so that the sausage is in and sort of on top of the hot dog, this kind of hot dog uses a bread that has one hole. First, if you want dressing, they fill the bread (not entirely) with it and then they press the sausage down into the hole.

    The day I went to Legoland, by lunch time I was too hungry to sit on one of their restaurants and wait for my order to be done so I chose to have a good "French" hot dog with juice (or coca cola, can't remember).

    Natalie Ristorante: so far, my favorite restaurant in Denmark

    by marielexoteria Updated Jun 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The best Mexican food place in Aalborg. They made my tacos the way I make them at home. Their food presentation is excellent and colorful. My companion had one of their Italian dishes and was very satisfied.

    Not only the food and the environment is great (it's good to be able to talk without shouting), but also their prices. Choose a 2-course meal for 99DKK or a 3-course meal for 109DKK, and then combine between 11 appetizers, 11 main courses and 8 desserts. The staff is very friendly and organized. I mean, they kindly (but firmly) told someone to please wait at the door to be seated because he (and his family) came in as if it was their home. You don't need to book a table but better safe than sorry. Casual/leisure clothing.

    The pictures on this tip are taken with my mobile phone so they don't have the best quality.

    Favorite Dish: I recommend their Taco de carne with Corona.

    Kunst og Spaghetti: great pasta

    by marielexoteria Updated Jun 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Now, I mentioned Vesuvio Restaurant in Cph as a great pasta place. Well Kunst og Spaghetti (Art and Spaguetti) deserves a tight 2nd place!

    While the restaurant itself is a tad small for my taste, I still give it a chance to go and enjoy great freshly made pasta. The whole place is decorated with sculptures, paintings and little decoration figurines that they sell. You can see their price tag and buy it right then and there if you fancy it.

    Good prices and quite centric.

    Oh, try one of their sorbets as they come inside the fruit, for ex. I had their orange sorbet and it came in an orange.

    Pizzeria Da Marino: The best Italian in town

    by marielexoteria Updated Jun 28, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizzeria Da Marino is without a doubt the place with the best pizza in Nörresundby. They also prepare pasta dishes on order and sell Italian food items, like olive oil. This pizza place is owned by an Italian, and they know their stuff! Highly recommended.

    Royal Shawarma Bar: Very Royal Shawarma

    by Ekahau Updated Jul 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Right behind the Royal hotel where i stayed in Aahrus is a very good Shawarma place with real authentic Middle eastern food cheap and simple.

    Favorite Dish: This place makes a wonderful Middle Eastern-style sandwich made of beef or chicken The Shawarma is here is the real thing made of strips of beef and marinated chicken placed on a skewer. It has the real stuff on the top as well tomatos and fat with the juice running down the cooking meat. The meat is roasted in front of you slowly on all sides as the skewer rotates in front of or over a flame for a period of several hours cooked with a gas fire. Note this is not the cheap version of shawarma is made of ground meat that is pre-formed and frozen onto a skewer which is a real yuck this is the real thing.

    Than they take a sharp knive and cut off the cooked meat in thin slices they slap this on pita bread with and a tahini sauce if you like they will add hot sauce.
