“Copenhagen’s hidden gem”
Their ethos is to offer excellent food and drink for an unusually reasonable price (especially for Copenhagen) and their manifesto is simply to keep their customers in good spirit, continuous laughter and if there are any problems to let them know immediately so they can make any problem go away. Well, there wasn’t a single problem – the food was far, far too good for that.
To start I had cured salmon, daikon, beetroots, butter milk and horseradish – the dish was delicate, light and sweet with a hint of acidity that helped to lift the dish in a beautiful way. Each element of the dish was cooked to perfection and created various different flavour elements which were very enjoyable.
The reason for our visit though was the lobster (oh, and the steak for Mark), but I’d never had a whole lobster before and was super excited to dig in. Sure, I’d had lobster in spaghetti or in ravioli but never whole and so when the time (finally) arrived, I was dribbling with giddiness. Cooking lobster is an art, and if you do not get the timing just right, it can render it tough and chewy. The lobster was served whole but cut up ready to be eaten with minimal fuss and served with a béchamel sauce.
I have to also say that the chips there are also fantastic. I’m a real potato lover but chips can often be an afterthought and often always bland and boring but these were thrice cooked and delivered with a rich gravy sauce to compliment them and I certainly wasn’t disappointed. For me, chips should either be served with rosemary and truffle oil/salt or exactly how they were served in Copenhagen. I’ve not had them quite like that since so perhaps I’ll have to take another trip back there to taste them once again… What a shame!
