Chich + the best smørrebrød in the town
Copenhagen is no megacity with millions of inhabitants, yet even with the one million they have they’re on the radar of the gourmands and foodies of the world with their excellent restaurants – from expensive to lesser known and cheaper, but not worse whatsoever. With their one million they’re many, many steps ahead. And delicious steps they are, too.
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. Cakes, wines, salads, tea and coffee. Come to think of it, you could have the same coffee anywhere else, but here it tastes differently. So special.
Amagertorv 6. Copenhagen
In the tiny world of smørrebrød you need a bit of patience to get your hands on one, as there’s plenty of people who appreciate a top-notch smørrebrød – from the staff from other spots here at the market, popping in for a lunch meal of succulent beef and creamy sauce sandwich, to townspeople from all over the place. Of all the smørrebrød available here (and that’s over a dozen, from vegetarian to meat-packed), there’s not a single one that would be less than great. The catch of the day meals are so simple yet genius that the only thing you might ever need to make them better is a glass of white wine.
