Food diaries are becoming my new favourite blog posts to write when I return from a trip. They do however make me super hungry looking at all the delicious food. Last month, I visited Copenhagen and I’ve written all about my trip here – go check it out! I usually pre-plan where looks good as I’m a fussy eater and it’s always good to have a few suggestions.
On the first evening in Copenhagen, we had booked into the Hard Rock Cafe for their Superbowl viewing party. For around £32, we got a legendary burger, nachos at half-time and popcorn. Additionally, we got a bottle of Budweiser and 2 for 1 drinks all night. Overall, it was a pretty sweet deal. It was a really fun evening, despite not having a clue what was going on in the game and the language barrier did not help.
The next morning we had breakfast at our hotel. We stayed at the Hotel Kong Arthur for three nights (my hotel review here) and breakfast was included with our room. I made a total blogger rookie error and didn’t take any photos of the restaurant or our food, so I’ve included a press photo. The breakfast was a traditional danish spread with a range of meats, cheeses and pastries. There was also a waffle machine which I was very pleased about. Around lunchtime we had more waffles in Nyhavn – You may notice that I ate a lot of churros and waffles on this trip.
I thought I’d also include my trip to Visit Carlsberg in this post where we had a couple of drinks in the bar. With entry to the museum, you get two tokens which can be used in their gift shop bar from a selection of beers, ciders and soft drinks. Ironically, you can’t actually get a pint of Carlsberg. I settled on Somersby Apple Cider which I’ve not tried before but I really enjoyed it. I think the gift shop bar is probably a highlight for most visitors.
Despite been told over and over to avoid eating in the Nyhavn area due to prices been ridiculously expensive we decided to go to Gorm’s right by the waterfront. I recently bought this book which basically tells you the best places to get Pizza around the world and Gorm’s featured in it. Other pizza places in Copenhagen included Mother and Baest which were a little further out of the city centre. Next time I hope to cross them off.
Gorm’s was an absolute gem, though. The restaurant was so cosy and the staff were very friendly. I wouldn’t say the pizza was the best in the world but it wasn’t bad at all. We also ordered garlic bread as a side which was delicious. I also noticed that there was a Gorm’s in the airport, I’m still regretting not getting another pizza! Copenghagen Airport is also one of the best airports I’ve been to!
The next evening we ticked off a burger joint I’d previously researched. I was pretty excited about visiting Cock’s and Cows, I believe there are a couple of branches throughout Copenhagen but we went to the one on Gammel Strand. It seems that it was the place to be and it was only 5.30pm! We got told the only seats available were outside which didn’t seem fun as it was still snowing but she assured us we would be in a tent thing warm enough to sit in a t-shirt. It was all very Hygge, log burners, fairy lights and candle – pretty cosy to say we were basically in a tent in the snow.
My Mum and I both went for Bacon and Cheese Burgers and shared twister fries, regular fries and onion rings. Honestly, this was one of the most delicious burgers I’ve had. I’d been recommended the onion rings and they didn’t disappoint! I do have to say that it was quite a long wait for the food but it was such a lovely setting and we wasn’t in a rush so it was no bother. The meal cost around £45 which is on the pricey side but most restaurants in Copenhagen are similar price points. It’s quite an expensive city.
Our final stop before heading to the airport was the Torvenhalle Food Market. This market was a short walk from our hotel. One hall featured all things sweet with plenty of pastries, chocolates and yummy indulgences. The other hall was for fresh fish, meats and had a few stands with the Danish favourite; Smørrebrød. With all these amazing stands, I decided to play around with my 45mm lens on my Olympus Pen and I was quite happy with some of the shots.
There is also another food market in Christianhavn. I’m gutted we didn’t get to as we just didn’t have enough time. Next time, eh? Looking back on this, there was a lot of waffles, pizzas and burgers. This is probably quite boring for everyone, especially as I didn’t try a lot of traditional danish food. I’m just not the most adventurous eater but everywhere we did go was delicious!
Hope you enjoyed my Copenhagen Food Diary, let me know if you’ve been to Copenhagen. Have you been to any of these places?
