After living several years in one of the most popular and modern cities in Europe I thought it was time to share my best tips for places to eat! And one thing you may know for sure – The copenhagen eating places are constantly moving. Every month there is loads of new and interesting cafés, take aways and restaurants – so this guide never stands still.
It’s not expensive places – even though Copenhagen can be quite expensive to visit. I tried to find the most budget friendly places, cafeés, markets and restaurants in case some of you plan a visit in the summer. Hope you find some inspiration!
My Copenhagen Food Guide:
La Neta – Say Hola at one of La Neta mexican street food places. Ask for a veggie – and try their quesadillas with creamy avocado dip. Don’t forget to order one of the local Mikkeller beers.
