Rise of the Phoenix – PMY

About 10 months ago I had one of my best meals ever at Taller so when they they announced they were closing I was off course sad. I brighted my mood a lot when they announced that Taller was to reopen at a new location and PMY would take its open at the old Taller spot. With PMY Karlos Ponte is teaming up with Peruvian superstar Diego Munoz who together with head souschef Emilio Marias took Astrid & Gaston to nr 14 on The Worlds 50 Best list.

Mexican comfort food at Restaurant Sanchez

Rosio Sanchez has with Hija de Sanchez introduced Copenhagen to a whole new side of Mexican food than it has seen in the past. Where Hija de Sanchez primarily focuses on tacos restaurant Sanchez has a much broader specter.   Opening night at restaurants in Copenhagen are always an amazing place to be. There is a buzzing vibe and off course it is filled with lots of industry people, bloggers and instead of having it revealed on countless Instagram pictures you get a firsthand experi...

Nomad chef Sebeastion Mazzola and sakesommelier Sussie Villarico brought their Nikkei cusines to Copenhagen for 4 nights only at the luxurious Sølyst.

A common denominator for the snacks was that several different variations of ... Continue Reading

Extreme deliciousness at Søllerød Kro

Søllerød Kro is a 340-year-old inn located about 20 km north of Copenhagen in a very small and idyllic town with less than 20.000 people. Søllerød Kro has had many giants as head chefs including Søren Gericke, Michael Michaud, Paul Cunningham and Jakob de Neergaard but despite this they have managed to maintain a certain style so consistent that if people say that it is “Søllerød Kro delicious” everybody knows what they mean.   This was my first visit to Søllerød Kro, ...

Contemporary New York cuisine at Contra

I am not sure how or why but a year ago when I started going to New York quite often Contra was one of the first restaurants I wanted to go to. In February, I had a reservation but had to cancel so it took another 8 months until I was finally able to go.   The menu at Contra is pretty. Fixed 5 course menu making it very easy to be a guest. A smaller menu available at the Barr, but why choose a smaller meny when the 5 course looks good:-) We started with a very small snack. ... Continue Reading

Noma under The Bridge – Finedining under a bridge?

Having won best restaurant in the world 4 times no matter what they do the expectations are bound to be high. As a self-diagnosed Noma addict after I was very happy to see that the staff made good use of the time between Noma Mexico and the opening of Noma 2.0.   The pop up consists of a long table fitting 60 people under Langebro in Copenhagen where all of the food is cooked over hot coal inspired by the pop up in Mexico. The wine is provided by Rosforth and Rosforth and as is ... Continue Reading

Starting crossing of the bucket list with Substans in Aarhus

Recently I took a decision to move from Copenhagen to New York and off course, I created a bucket list of restaurants I need to try before I leave. With a strong preference for Nordic food and having never visited Substans it seemed obvious that I had to try Substans.   We started the evening with 3 small snacks. Radishes with a Arla Unika cheese sauce, puff pastry with caviar and what I think was trout served with daikon and edible flowers. The highlight was the puff pastry with ... Continue Reading

In the hunt for the second Michelin star at Clou

Less than 2 weeks ago Clou moved to a new more intimate location with a bigger menu and fewer guest with the goal of achieved the coveted second Michelin star. A good friend of mine is a close friend with the owner so we had talked about going to Clou for a while so now the timing was right on the money.   The first snack was a Clou classic in form of an oyster with passion fruit and ginger. Nice combinations of flavors with off course was a great match for our vintage Cava. ... Continue Reading
