No surprises here, your 24 hours of eating starts with a pastry (yes, even before your coffee). Nikolaos Strangas will charm his way into your heart with his oh-so-sticky cinnamon snails, and his oh-so-Greek warmth and generosity.
Nickie Mydung is the humble and lovely owner of District Tonkin — a Vietnamese street food café where her bánh mì sandwiches take centre stage. We always go for the B2 — every bite is brilliant!
After lunch, stroll over to Kongens Have and pop into Café Det Vide Hus where Claus will blow your mind with his homemade ice-cream-on-a-stick (flavours vary). Or, cosy up with another coffee (in Denmark you can never drink too much coffee).
With your stomach nicely lined, it’s time to get your wine on! Cross the harbour to Sankt Annæ 8 — the cosiest wine bar in Christianshavn, with a small, ever-changing wine list and one delicious dish served every day for dinner.
A moonlit stroll along the canal, to the always-buzzing Copenhagen Street Food. Grab a jar of wine, a chilli mojitos or a local beer from one of the many food-and-drink trucks. Sit by the water with a blanket and soak up the vibes and the harbour breeze.
It may be getting dark, but the tour continues! Take yourself back into the city centre, to a little street called Valkendorfsgade, where you’ll find the notorious Balderdash and probably its owner, Geoffrey. A place for fun, (quality) drinking, and our favourite espresso martini in Copenhagen (ask for extra bacon salt)!
If you’ve made it this far, congratulations! You can still find food on the streets at this early hour. Hotdog vans or “pølsevogne” are loved and worshipped by the Danes, and Johns is one of the city’s favourites, usually to be found outside Hovedbanegården (Copenhagen Central Station), or in Kødbyen in the early hours of the morning!
