$225 Massive ROYAL SEAFOOD PLATTER in Copenhagen, Denmark!
Copenhagen, Denmark – If you look at a map, you’ll see that Denmark has an immense amount of sea coastline – from the different islands and peninsulas that make up the country. Seafood has and always will be a major part of Danish food and culture. And so today we’re focusing on seafood in Denmark, starting from the source of the fishermen to some amazing people serving incredible seafood.
Fishing port – To get started in the morning we first drove about 30 minutes outside of Copenhagen to a small fishing port to meet up with a fishermen and see his fresh catch of the day. Most of his catch was cod, and a few trout.
Kødbyens Fiskebar – To get the seafood tour started we then drove over to the Meatpacking district of Copenhagen and to a restaurant called Kødbyens Fiskebar, a seafood restaurant serving a modern take on Danish seafood. Their dishes are even tastier than they look, and they are some of the most beautiful seafood dishes I’ve ever seen, so delicate and artful. The food was undoubtedly fresh, and we had an amazing meal.
Cykelkokken – Chef Morten Kryger Wulff (https://www.instagram.com/cykelkokken/), also known as the bicycle chef, is an amazing man who has created a custom bicycle kitchen. After seeing some of the urban hanging seafood gardens, we then got started cooking. Chef Morten made oysters and champagne, followed by a stir fry of vegetables and mussels in a spinach leaf wrap. Gourmet food, amazing people, and an incredibly fun experience. Thank you to Chef Morten and the entire team from Cykelkokken. Highly recommended when you’re in Copenhagen!
Krogs Fiskerestaurant – Seafood Restaurant – Finally to finish off this seafood tour of Copenhagen, Denmark, Esben and I went to Krogs Fiskerestaurant, one of the original seafood restaurants in Copenhagen, a legendary restaurant. We knew exactly what we wanted to order, the moment we sat down – the Royal Danish Seafood platter. It was everything I had expected and more. A wonderful classic restaurant, and truly a Royal Danish seafood experience! Total price – 1,510 DKK ($225.58)
