Because in food I trust. In all forms and shapes.

See if you can spot this these. Copenhagen

There is no way that someone could starve to death in Copenhagen. Packed with great and tasty spots Copenhagen is a place for foodies of many levels starting from good specialty coffee to chic dinners. These are just few of them. 

Royal Smushi Cafe

If you’re looking for a slightly extraordinary and bohemian Copenhagen feeling, head to Royal Smushi Cafe. Tucked away in a backyard off the central square, it’s a bit tricky to see, but when you find it, there’s no forgetting this place. Masks, quaint bowls, lacework, golden candlesticks, huge paintings, murals, and everything you’d normally consider to be over-the-top, but here it fits so perfectly.  Address: Amagertorv 6, Copenhagen; www.royalsmushicafe.dk

Grød

Grød is all about grain – from oatmeal and gluten-free flakes for breakfast to barley, rice and all kinds of cereals for all meals up to dinner. If you’d like to start with everything on one plate, the all-in-one breakfast porridge will be the best choice – a base of your choice plus caramel, peanut butter, Valrhona chocolate drops, almonds, hazelnuts, granola, berries, apple compote and much, much more. Looking for more of a lunch? Get the barley risotto with green peas and local cheese, a Congee with rice or a Groddeller.  Address: Jægersborggade 50, Copenhagen; groed.com/en

The Corner

The little brother or sister of Noma restaurant, pretty decent in their prices and absolutely excellent in their flavours. A side dish to the famous Restaurant 108 just around the corner, where the locals pop in all day long for a cup of coffee or a hot barley drink (their version of a hot chocolate), grab a delicate pastry to take away for breakfast (the coffee mille-feuille à la croissant is a must-have) or have a seemingly so simple but so uniquely magnificent bread with whipped butter and cheese. Address: Strandgade 108, Copenhagen; www.108.dk/thecorner

Fleisch

Fleisch with the historic white tiles, furnishings almost identical to the original and some new furniture thrown in the mix have really brought a true air of Meatpacking District, from the interior to the meat dishes (don’t panic, there are vegetarian options as well). One of the three spots in the city where you can get biodynamically bred pork, and then of course aged beef and dishes made according to the “nose to tail” philosophy. Try the local drinks, homemade sausages and smørrebrød (the same finest ever you’d find at Hallernes Smørrebrød, as the owner of these two places is the same). Address: Slagterboderne 7, Copenhagen;
