Copenhagen: Where to eat

I must admit, the first thing I do when researching where to travel is check what the food scene is like. I have been known to book a holiday based solely on the food I would find when I got there..!

There are so many delicious places to eat in Copenhagen but I reckon these are my favourites...

We had heard about Grød from so many different people so we headed straight there from the airport for an early morning breakfast. Serving up the most delicious porridge Grød knows exactly what's needed on a cold Scandi morning. Head to Torvehallerne Market and warm yourself up with a big bowl of breakfast love!

We went for a salted porridge with bananas, blueberries and cocoa nibs and then the most incredible sweet porridge with apples, freeze-dried raspberries and almonds on top of a huge spoonful of caramel sauce! (Highly recommend putting caramel on porridge!)

Mad & Kaffe

A little way out of the city Mad & Kaffe is well worth the walk! The menu is made up of lots of different delicious things.

Sweet baked goods, spicy sausages, cheese and jam, yogurt bowls, cheese and ham toasties and so so much more! You choose to have 3, 5 or 7 items and then just choose what you'd like from the menu.

Walking back to the city is a little harder when you have stuffed yourselves full with breakfast goods but boy is it worth it!

Copenhagen Street Food

You'll need to jump on a boat to get to this market for lunch and you'll need to take a warm coat if you plan on sitting outside watching the world go by on boats.

We feasted on 'fish og chips' and a confit duck burger. Both were delicious but the burger in particular was just the right amount of salty, sweet, soft and crunchy. The duck burger stall was on the left hand wall of the cavernous room so have a hunt around, try some samples, pick up a few other bits then end up there!

(We did also go back inside to get a huge slice of cheesecake but we ate it far to quickly to take a picture, alas!)

After hearing nothing but good things about this little Italian restaurant we knew we had to go and get involved in their five course set menu and my goodness it was good. We were in Copenhagen in Spring and their ingredients reflect that. Asparagus in the lightest but most flavoursome butter sauce, an incredible lovage and ramson risotto and a white chocolate, ginger and rhubarb desert were three of five very impressive courses. Book a table and go hungry!

There were two cafes/bakeries we would dip in to if we passed them Mayers Deli and Lagkagehuset. They're just regular chain cafes but whenever you need a cinnamon bun (all the time right?!) they'll sort you out!

The last restaurant I want need to tell you about isn't exactly in Copenhagen. In fact it's not even in Denmark...

Malmö is the third largest city in Sweeden and conveniently is only a 55minute train ride from Copenhagen. I know what you're thinking, 'why would I go on a two hour round trip on a train to a different country for a restaurant?'. Saltimporten Canteen is why.

This is one of those meals that the minute you start eating it you know you're going to remember it for the rest of your life. Nestled towards the end of Malmö's port it's about a 15 minute walk from the train station and if you feel like you're going in completely the wrong direction you're heading right for it. 

Open Mon-Fri for only two hours a day (12-2) this place is worth making the effort to get to. They serve a meat dish and vegetarian dish and provide huge loaves of fresh bread that you just help yourself too. We got there a little late but talked the chefs into whipping us up one of each dish. (We had come all the way from Denmark after all!)

Sat in the gleaming sunshine we enjoyed two plates of some of the best food we have ever eaten and after a lemon and olive soft serve ice-cream (just trust the chefs on this one!) we headed back to Copenhagen airport very pleased with ourselves.

If you end up in Copenhagen and go to any of these yummy places let me know on Twitter or tag me in an Instagram so I can live through you!

Do you have any foodie destinations you'd recommend I get on my travel list?
