A foodies guide to Copenhagen

So in December I traveled to the beautiful city of Copenhagen for a weekend break this trip was part of an anniversary gift from Adam. We decided to start the wedding traditions early and this year was of course paper - so a flight ticket was always going to be a winner for a Lifestyle Blogger and getting me one year closer to the year of the diamond đŸ˜œ

Best for: A weekend break with lots of walking or cycling.

Location: Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and is bursting with history and amazing architecture, gardens and palaces. I was based on the main street of Vesterbro in the citys ‘hip’ district with boutiques, art galleries and some great bars surrounding us.

Nearest Airport: Copenhagen's airport is only a short drive from the centre of Copenhagen so just get in line for taxi, no Uber’s here I am afraid. I also believe the train is super easy but it was too cold.

Accommodation: We stayed at the ComfortInn Vesterbro, part of Nordic Choice Hotels and boy what a good choice that was, it was close to everything… a 5 minute walk to Tivoli, 2 min walk to bars and restaurants and 15 minute taxi ride to the airport and a few steps to the Forum Subway station.

Some additional things that made this hotel great was on Sunday’s you can either check out at 12 or 6pm, you just need to let reception know and seeing as our flight wasn’t until 10pm this was an added bonus.

Breakfast is included and you can get everything from full English to muesli. There is also a modern restaurantand bar called Plectrum with a number of awards with the main draw seeming to be the huge burgers. I didn’t actually have a proper meal here just a glass of fizz and the garlic bread with Philadelphia, habaneros and aioli which I can totally recommend.

Where to eat and drink: Fancy a specific cuisine, you will be able to find it here in Copenhagen as there is every place under the sun with so many places being Instagram worthy.

As we were only in Copenhagen for a short time I couldn’t go everywhere but I thought I would share where I did end up for food / drinks đŸ·:

Restaurant Frascati

This restaurant doesn't look very fancy but does the best traditional pizza or pasta dish, perfect if you land late as its open until 11 pm.


Madklubben Vesterbro
You will need to make sure you pre-book or pop in early enough as it’s a popular gem with its simple yet sophisticated menu. You can choose between 1-3 dishes at set prices and choose between around 4/5 options.

On the drink front the cocktails were divine and every night they have a new ‘Cocktail of the day’ although ours was basically Gin and Tonic so I was not tempted.

For starters we had the charcuterie board and the steak tartar we were also treated to a bag of pork scratchings as an aperitif. Then a mushroom risotto and the duck confit for mains.

Copenhagen is not cheap so as you can imagine this meal was not but for two people it cost us £90 including three cocktails. For Copenhagen I thought this was really reasonable and the service was superb as there were quite a few places where the service was pretty awful.

For a good cocktail bar you need a good menu, great ambiance and some type of theme and Duck and Cover Bar has it all. I am not sure how often they update their menu but as we went at Christmas time the Cocktail menu was created in its honour with pine infused everything and catchy names such as Reindeer Diesel or Mrs. Claus’ pear dessert.

I don’t even think there was a sign outside the bar so use Google Maps as a guide, it is dark, a bit of a speak easy vibe but the cocktails and service are perfect and fun.

Café Norden is at the very heart of the city just by all the fancy shops like Hermes and Louis Vuitton we just popped in for a hot chocolate and a white chocolate and cranberry cookie and the place was packed and super cozy. The breakfasts looked incredible!

Copenhagen Street Food
You can’t visit Copenhagen and not go to the street food market, it’s insane, extremely busy but people are leaving all the time so just wait, someone will move.

It is sad that its closing but I believe it is moving to a different location soon so I thought it was still worth a mention. You can get anything your belly desires and with so many options Adam and I end up with the creative option of toasties although mine was goats cheese which wins over most other ingredients.
