I almost feel local in the streets of Copenhagen now. I’ve been there thrice in the span of 4 years, My husband’s office is located there – and sometimes I tag along. My initial reaction to the country was that its “alright” but it can burn a hole right in your pants, honestly, forget about it merely drilling a hole in your pocket. Extortion is the key word here. I vividly remember a bowl of roasted potatoes costing me the equivalent to 15 pounds. I almost died on the spot. The inner cheapskate in me had fainted. But now, being a local foreigner there (yes, the juxtaposition was necessary) I know cheap vegetarian eats that are delectable. So here’s my little guide of must-sees and must-eats (vegetarian food in Copehagen). Vegetarian Must Eats in Copenhagen:
- DOP – Vegetarian Hotdog from a hotdog stand. OMG – there’s one! DOP. It’s located on Stroget itself, opposite H&M. I had it three lunches in a row! It was that good
- RizRaz – located near Stroget. It has a vegetarian buffet (salads, pasta, lasagna, falafels) It’s EXCELLENT.
- Chilli-Milli – very fresh salads. A bit costly but healthy!
- Rajisimmo – Churros from there with chocolate. OMG!
- Sticks – yummy fruit kebabs with chocolate and nuts. Taste is quite gourmet.
My yummy pictures:
Yummy hotdogs! Can you believe its VEGAN + all organic produce?!
Churros with milky chocolate topping and vanilla soft serve
Honestly, there’s not much to do in Denmark (compared to other European Destinations) but here’s a list of possible things to do. Places to visit in Copenhagen: Canal Boat Tour – 1 hour tour that’s just about 7 pounds and lasts an hour. Nice way to see the country. Little Mermaid – Very disappointing. So don’t go all the way there to see a small black statue. Instead go on the canal tour, it passes it and that’s suffice. National Museum – I enjoyed it. It has many rooms and is very well made. Gives you a good outline of the Stone Age – Bronze Age – Iron Age etc. It even had a skeleton in a coffin. That was quite unusual. Stroget – walk the main street and eat hotdogs!! 🙂 Tivoli Garden – it’s a beautiful place to walk around even if you’re not planning on going on rides! Some pretty pictures:
The pathetic little mermaid. It’s like Where’s Wolly – so tiny that you have to try spot it
The beautiful Tivoli Gardens that has been there literally forever (there’s Sticks there if you want to eat gourmet fruit kebab!)
Spot our names on the walls at Nyhavn!
Have fun while you’re there. And if there’s something I haven’t mention that’s worth a shout, do leave me a shout out 🙂
