Last sunday I had a lazy breakfast/brunch with one of my good friends. Something I haven´t done in quit a while, although I LOVE it.
On instagram (follow me as foodMAD) I had seen a breakfast picture from this Nordisk Brødhus (The Nordic Breadhouse - directly translated), and it seemed intimate, and down to earth... The perfect place to wind down after a hectic work-week... I convinced my friend, that THIS was the place to try this time!

The place is located in the hipster-area of Copenhagen, where small, and at times odd shops of all sorts, thrive. The cafe itself bakes all of its bread in a large stoneoven situated in the middle of the cafe, and the delicious smell of fresh bread encloses most of the street. Everything is ecological, and the taste, amazing!

The cafe itself is rather chabby, like and unfinished bakery, but that is definitly part of the charme. Get yourself a table at the window, and order the breakfast, that comes with a coffee of your choice, and have a look at the various people the passes by.

The breakfast is composed of a big basket of freshly made bread, some good cheeese, good quality ham, some rose hip marmelade, a soft boiled egg, lots of butter and a glass of apple juice (besides the coffe). Furthermore there was a delicious piece of spicy carrotcake to finsih the meal of with. We ordered a cup of green the as well and paid in total for the entire thing, 120 dkk (a really decent price in Copenhagen).

Áfter the meal, you could stop by the cosy (yes, cosy) graveyard, behind the cafe, and look up the grave of the famous danish writer Hans Christian Andersen or perhaps Søren Kierkegaard. A lot of famous danes are buried here.

If you want to visit the cafe, you will find it at this adress:

This year, Copenhagen Dining Week is running for the third year in a row. It is a concept run by Copenhagen Food Magazine and San Pellegrino together, and is part of the winter edition of the food festival "Copenhagen Cooking". For 200 dkk you can eat a predefined three course meal, including a bottle of sparkling San Pellegrino water in one of the more than 100 good Copenhagen restaurants in the concept... Now thats cheap! Tickets should be bought well in advance of week 7 here.

Last monday, I decided to try a restaurant that I have never been to, together with a good friend. We went to "Nimb Terasse".

Nimb Terasse" is located in the old Tivoli garden in Copenhagen, but is not situated inside the Nimb building facing Copenhagen Central Station. Instead it is located inside in the garden itself, in a rather anonymous building... But don´t be fooled. The interior exceeds the exterior.
(All photos were taken with my Iphone.)
The athmosphere was warm and welcoming. Our coats were taken and put in the wardrobe, and we were seated immediatly.
The menu was as follows:

  • Starter:Tartar of codfish, with cucumber, dill and a horseradish sauce.
  • Main Course: Chicken with celery root, burnt charlottes and a sauce with smoked marrow
  • Dessert: Poched pear with white chocolate parfait and liqourice
First dish:

My favorite of the evening! Smooth and wonderful, with a nice kick from the horseradish. Great dish!

Second dish:

Third dish:

Third dish was the favorite with my compagnion. Great dish with amazing flavours!
After the dessert, we decided to take our coffee in the lounge next to the bar. A great place to get a cocktail, or to just relax with a cup of coffee.

We had a cafe latte with cinnamon macarons and a chocolate with passionfruit.

A great and cheap evening! I love Copenhagen Dining Week, especially because it gives you the ability to try out some restaurants that you might not have tried otherwise. I will definitly return to this place in the future.
