Award winning delicatessen and butcher selling a range of meat, cold cuts, pates and salami as well as Fano beers and various foodie stuff. This is the main butcher on the island.
What to buy: The salami are divine! My two favourites are the garlic salami and the carrot salami. Nothing to do with the stuff you buy in supermarkets! These are much leaner and are made on the island. Beautiful meat, delicious taste.
What to pay: You're in Denmark, it's not cheap!Related to:
