Worlds best 1 Star restaurant at Søllerød Kro

Two months ago I had one of my best meals ever at Søllerød Kro and when that happens I could not resist going there again before leaving Copenhagen. Having already written a long post covering some of its histore, location and so forth this post will be somewhat shorter, so for the long version see the previous post.   To start the meal a series of snacks and smaller appetizers were served. My favorite was the small truffle egg. It was rich in umami and just pure delicious... Continue Reading

Rediscovering Peru at Central

There are certain restaurants that I always return to when I have the chance. Central is one of them so whenever I am in Lima I will book at least one table. Eating at Central is an all consuming experience where Virgilio takes you on a trip covering 17 altitudes and ecosystems covering rainforrest, high mountains and costal climate. The menu will off course change quite often, but the same route through Peru is used for all menues. With 17 dishes the menu off course starts with a series of ... Continue Reading

An undiscovered gem at Barra Lima

Usually when I visit a “highend restaurant” in another country it is usually because I got it recommended from a friend or it has a good spot on a prominent list like Worlds 50 Best. This is not the case for Barra Lima which I actually first noticed on Instagram.   The restaurant is quite small with jus a couple of tables inside besides the long bar by the kitchen where we were seated tonight which off course gives a good insight in the workings of the kitchen. True to ... Continue Reading

A delicious finedining version of Peruvian comfortfood at Astrid&Gaston

The foodculture in Peru has been open to influence from kitchens all over the World. The traditionel peruvian kitchen therefore contains influence from both Asia, Central America and parts of Europe.

Eating at hipster central at Ancestrale

Vesterbro in Copenhagen was earlier this year voted as one of the coolest neighborhoods to live in in the World. Every cool and trendy neighborhood needs a small local wine bar that gathers the locals for a glass of wine before dinner or a late glass after dinner. Located in the heart of Vesterbro Ancestrale fits right in the lively and diverse neighborhood.   Ancestrale is a small wine bar that seats max 20 people. I am not sure who did the decoration but it is filled with persona... Continue Reading

Barr – my favorite restaurant in Copenhagen

About a yeat ago I wrote a blog post entitled “A love affair with Noma”. I still have a love affair with Noma, but now I also have a mistress called Barr. While Noma is femine, elegant and very sophisticatede Barr is no fuss, to the point and bit more maskuline but also very accessable so in that sence it has some of the traits of a mistress. Barr opend 6 months ago and as this was my visit number 11 some calls me a regular, others calls me addicted and some people think I am just plane ... Continue Reading

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. The trio wants to cook comfort food from their ... Continue Reading

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...

Cooking in Motion brings the Nikkei kitchen to Copenhagen

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
