One of the best things about Copenhagen is how beautifully understated many things are. You literally stumble across amazing design stores, museums, coffee houses, bars and restaurants. Nothing seems to be flaunted in a flashy way – it seems to be a case of “If you find us, that’s cool…”
And this was very much the case with Copenhagen Street Food. Located in the Paper Island district, right on the water front, it’s a cavernous warehouse in a very industrial – but scratch the surface, and it’s uber trendy – area. If you’ve ever been to Camp & Furnace on Greenland Street in Liverpool, it’s very similar location wise. Food outlet wise, it really reminded me of a bigger version of the food hall at Altrincham Market.
We loved the above sign – why pay something fancypants when you can do it yourself? The ethos of the food market is brilliant – it’s all about unique, independent traders, all coming together under one roof to provide an eclectic experience.
The choice of cuisines is available is extensive – Turkish, South Korean, Brazilian, French, Belgian, German, Indian, Italian, Colombian, Chinese, Moroccan, Thai, Mexican and of course, Danish. There are outlets serving us fresh fish dishes – notably Hav2Go and Tolboden’s Fish & Chips, who serve up classic Fish ‘n’ Chips with Danish fish and seasonal vegetables and dips. You can get burgers, beer, brownies, gluten free options, sustainable foods, pancakes, coffees, sorbets & ice-creams, pulled pork, root food, juices, cocktails. The choice is initially a little over-whelming – so you just have to go back!
The Food Market is closed until 3rd February 2016 and then opening hours are as follows :
Thursday 12 – 9pm // Friday 12 – 10pm // Saturday 12 – 10pm (some stalls open at 10am)//Sunday 12 – 9pm (some stalls open at 10am). The bars are open until late Thursday/Friday/Saturday
