Copenhagen is a city with a lot to offer, but the Danish capital’s blossoming as a foodie centre is undoubtedly its most delicious attribute. The birthplace of New Nordic cuisine, there is something inherently ‘Copenhagen’ about how food is approached here, from the initial concept to the last morsel on the plate. Local, seasonal ingredients are king, and the proof is in the pudding. Well, the dishes, but you get the point.
Befitting somewhere with such culinary credentials, the best restaurants in Copenhagen cover a whole lot of ground. If you want salt of the earth home cooking, you will find it in spades, while those searching for blowout Michelin star restaurants are in for a real treat. Every nook and cranny of Copenhagen waits on its menus, a true melting pot of cultures that do terrifically naughty things to the tastebuds. As the Danes say: Velbekomme!
