 2. Madklubben – Dig in delicious Shawarma to Tempting Vegetable dishes

A true neighborhood spot with a bustling atmosphere on a Tuesday as well as a Saturday. Let the 4 meter tall ”Madklubben” neon sign guide you through the passageway to the courtyard and Madklubben Nørrebro furnished with a mix of stylish Danish design icons and rustic architectural details from the venue’s warehouse past.

Just like the district of Nørrebro, the menu wants do do it all while still maintaining a special love for the Middle Eastern cuisine. Once you enter the restaurant you’ll easily spot our enormous charcoal grill, which is the beating heart of the open kitchen. It’s used to cook everything from scrumptious shawarma to burger patties and tempting vegetable dishes. A three course menu starts from as little as DKK 200. Copenhagen Food Guide would want you to have a sample of this if you are in this city.

3. Kadeau – Menu inspired by Bornholm specialities and Danish ingredients

In 2013 the restaurant was awarded its first Michelin star and to this day you’ll still find it with the coveted star in Guide Michelin Nordic Cities 2017. Kadeau underwent a major refurbishment in 2016 and reduced the number of seats to be able to focus even more on each guest and, in their own words, “get even closer to their max.”

Originally there was only one restaurant Kadeau in Denmark, and that was situated on the island Bornholm. But in the 2011 the people behind Kadeau decided that it was time to share the Bornholm delights with Copenhagen.

Ever since they have served high class gastronomy in the restaurant in Christianshavn. Here the menu is inspired by Bornholm specialties and Danish ingredients. As a result of the success both of the two fine dining restaurants, the owners have since opened two other restaurants: The neighbouring Nabo in Christianshavn and Pony, which you’ll find in Vesterbro.

The menu changes according to season. And so does the opening hours. Check out Kadeau’s website for up to date info. This a must try as per Blackboard’s Copenhagen Food Guide.

4. Local Market Bikes

Powered by the objective of making ecological, fresh and locally-sourced produce accessible to Copenhageners, the Local Market bikes out to six different locations in the city this spring.

Inhabitants of Vesterbro, Nørrebro, Østerbro, Sydhavn and Amager will be able to purchase fresh fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and bread directly from The Local Market’s signature blue and white coloured bikes. On a designated day, once a week, The Local Market will visit each one of the above mentioned boroughs. The ecologically-conscious bike-based initiative is aligned with the goals of green transformation and vibrant urban environment set by The City of Copenhagen. Hence, Blackboard’s Copenhagen Food Guide definitely recommends this.

5. Tacos Chucho, Copenhagen Street Food

Copenhagen Food Guide wouldn’t be possible without street food. In the small food trucks you can get delicious sustainable street food from all corners of the world – and enjoy it indoors in the raw halls or in the sun overlooking the city’s waterfront.

There is something very Copenhagen-like and something very foreign about Copenhagen Street Food. There are scents of Corean and Mexican as well as Italian and Danish food from the small colourful food trucks, but the place – the raw halls in the maritime setting – has a distinct Copenhagen feel to it, that resembles that of Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District. Something raw, genuine and authentic.

The ambitions are as high as the ceilings inside the great halls. They are to create a cheap street food market in Copenhagen, where both culture, food, sustainability and the good cause go hand-in-hand at the last untouched place in Copenhagen’s harbour. There are food trucks, coffee, beers, and drinks.

Some food trucks serve organic food, but the priority is that the food tastes good, is made from scratch, and it must be sustainable, meaning for an example that the ingredients are not transported over long distances, but are local produce. “Genuine, honest and aesthetic” is the motto. Last but not least, you can eat a meal for DKK 50. Some dishes cost more, but there is always at least one option in that price range.

6. Enjoy devilishly delicious lobster at Restaurant Hummer

How can Copenhagen Food Guide be complete without lobster? The restaurant wants to present the lobster in a new way. Reinvent and reinterpret it. So much, in fact, that they have created an entire restaurant to take on the task.

Bringing the highly desired shellfish down from its pedestal, Hummer takes the unusual, the informal approach and simply let the white meat do what it does best. Satisfy your tastebuds in all ways imaginable. So if you love lobster and is man enough to try something new (something that tastes great) then you have come to the right place.

However, Hummer haven’t turned their back on all traditions, as they still stick to the perfect combination of bubbles with their innovative lobster dishes and snacks.

Besides the iconic and highly covet lobster, Hummer’s menu counts a wide range of other delicious fish fishes, so there is definitely something for every seafood lover.

7. Toldboden’s Fish N Chips

It is right by the waterfront and still located in central Copenhagen. Toldboden offers light and open rooms to groups of all sizes with a beautiful view of the Copenhagen harbourside. One of the benefits of Toldboden is that customers are able to design the event space themselves with help from a meeting designer.

The lunch can be enjoyed standing, sitting or from a picnic basket on the quayside or in the green surroundings of the citadel.

Toldboden offers a varied and flexible catering service, and will serve deli-snacks, sandwiches, grand buffets, canapés or a delicicious menu of six courses among many other things.
