Copenhagen, Denmark?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created April 06, 2012 at 4:19 AM

I am going to be working abroad in Copenhagen from May to September. I'm having some anxiety because I really don't know what to expect from a food standpoint. I will have a kitchen, which will be extremely helpful, but I am wondering if anyone could lend any suggestions as to where to get quality food. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

I forgot to mention that the Palæo fastfood that Wowza mentioned is very close to Nørreport station too, so you may want to check both at once.

We have some high end supermarkets, where you're able to get wild game meat and good quality food.

Such supermarkets are: F??tex, Super Brugsen and Irma. These have free range meat and/or organic meat. A few of those have wild game such as boar and deer (Irma in particular).

The discount places: Super Best, Fakta, Netto, Rema 1000 and LIDL. These have some organic products, like eggs and cream/milk, but you won't find much quality food there. Although, Super Best has the best grass fed butter, which is actually cheaper than other brands of butter.

There are alot of butchers and specialized convenience stores etc. that have wild caught fish, wild/organic/free range meat and organic/bio-dynamic greens and vegetables.

As Isa points out, you are welcome to write Paleo Damnark if you have any specific preferences, if you're looking for something special or any other query at all.

Regarding dining out: it is expensive, but you will be able to find paleo-friendly restaurants - orgainc restaurants as well. The aforementioned fast food restaurant is "Pal??o", which a michelin stared restaurant owner recently opened. (www.pal??o.dk).

There are some threads about Scandinavia and Norway here. What applies for Norway generally applies for denmark, perhaps a bit more difficult to get game meat in Denmark, but food prices in general are much cheaper than Norway. There is also a paleo fast food restaurant there!

Nothin to worry about!

Everything you can dream of and more at the big food hall/farmers market downtown: http://torvehallernekbh.dk/

Copenhagen is currently Europe's most foodie city. Have no fear. The Danes adore butter.

Meat: Kultorvet , right next to Nørreport station (for both metro and train)

Dairies: Irma (supermarket) has some Jersey cow products. I especially like their sødmælk, which is whole (not skimmed) and comes in ½ liter boxes. If buying meat at the supermarket, Irma is also the best place since they have some free-range animals, although not the cheapest place. They do have some things in offer often, though.

Vegetables/fruits: most supermarkets will have a section of organic vegetables and fruits.

EVCO: about the same price in every supermarket, but 10 dkk cheaper at Matas. ;)

I can't remember what else is vital for survival, LOL. Just ask anything you like. :)

PS: I thought I was the only cavewoman in CPH, since one of the things I did recently was to leave facebook...
