A truly Danish dining experience
Restaurant Koefoed has some significance for us. It’s where we ate during my very first night in Copenhagen, way back in August when Mark helped me settle into my new life here.
The food was amazing back then, so we decided to give it another go. It’s barely a 5 minute walk from the D’Angleterre, in Copenhagen’s city center, and after a day of semi-touristy fun it was the perfect R&R.
We started with some bubbles, and then settled in for the tasting menu.
Cute little breadies…
These little crackers topped with mushrooms…
And æbleskiver on top of Christmas tree branches. (What season are we in, again?)
First course: fish.
Second course: caviar. (And a hidden Mickey!)
Third course: duck.
Fourth course: pork.
Fifth course: cheese.
Dessert number 1: raspberry ice cream and white chocolate.
Dessert number 2: Jerusalem artichokes and cream.
Plus a little behind the scenes. This is what happens when they serve a different glass of wine with each course. I epically fail at keeping up, which means I end the night with a slew of half-filled glasses.
And yes, the waiters always look at me with that “mad judging your right now” sideways glance. But better that than alcohol poisoning, right!?
Anyway. If you ever find yourself in Copenhagen, a trip to this foodie mecca would be a worthy way of spending an evening.
