Eating Our Way Around Copenhagen


If you didn't already know from my last post or from the fact I've been incessantly talking about it over on my Instagram, I recently went to Copenhagen. One of the many things I loved about it, but haven't really touched on yet, was the food.

Let's be honest, on holiday the food is one of the most important things, but I hadn't actually done much research prior to visiting Copenhagen on where or what would be good to eat. Turns out I didn't need to though because absolutely everywhere was consistently good, whether we'd looked somewhere up, had it recommended or simply popped in because it was the nearest place to go amidst a hangry episode.

So in case you are looking for recommendations, I thought I'd do a little round up of where and what we ate. (Side note: I'm vegetarian, my boyfriend isn't so these are all places that cater to both. I'm sure there are probably places with more vegetarian/vegan options available, but I did find that there were only a few options on the menu for me in the places we did eat.) Also apologies for the lack of photos, actually eating is always my priority over getting an Instagrammable shot.

RAVNSBORG KITCHEN & BAR // This restaurant was chosen on our first night purely for the fact that it was close to our hotel and it looked nice inside (have a look at their website and you'll see what I mean). It was one of those modern yet rustic places lit mainly with candles and small lamps. I had a margherita pizza (standard) and it was bloody delicious. I was gutted I couldn't finish it and I remain gutted to this day that I didn't ask for a doggy bag.

GORM'S PIZZA (TORVEHALLERNE MARKET) // Also close to our hotel was Torvehallerne Market, which was full of different street food stalls. Despite having had pizza the night before, we ate at Gorm Pizza, which is a chain (we ate it again in the airport before our flight home). The pizzas are made fresh before your eyes which meant they tasted amazing. I went for the Denny Special, which had potatoes and rosemary on it, which sounds odd for a pizza but just worked. Learning from my past mistakes I did get a doggy bag and proceeded to guzzle the rest in the evening after a few glasses of vino. 

LA ROCCA // We weren't intending to eat in the hotel, but finding ourselves really rather hungry at a time we were there we decided to try the Italian, La Rocca. The following statement is not an exaggeration; we ate the most delicious ravioli in the world. We both had the spinach and ricotta ravioli in tomato, lemon and pesto sauce and I could honestly happily eat just that for the rest of my life. Oh and the menus were digital so that was fun too.



KITCHENETTE // We chose this place because we wanted somewhere close to a gig venue and after first choosing somewhere that was closed, then going somewhere that didn't serve food we found Kitchenette. It had the same kind of vibes as Ravnsborg, but was much busier and had lampshades so low a certain someone managed to knock a light out with his head. I had a veggie burger that was like no other veggie burger I'd had before because it was made from fresh root vegetables and it was bloody LOVELY. 

CARLTON // This was the most random find because we weren't actually planning on eating but both suddenly got horrendously hangry and stumbled into the first place we came across. We both ordered nachos and along came the biggest portion of nachos I've ever seen; put it this way, when I'd finished it looked like I'd hardly started. They had everything on them and the cheese was deliciously even throughout; none of this pathetic sprinkle of cheese on the top malarky.

That's everywhere we ate and I can't really fault anything about any of them (apart from being expensive, which food just is in Copenhagen), which is pretty good going for a random not-really-thought-out selection of places isn't it?
