Officially my first post in Copenhagen! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!
So I’ve moved to the best city ever. This place has everything that’s amazing in the world. Biking, boats and Danish babes. Food-wise, they’re literally not short of anything. Michelin-starred restaurants (Noma, anyone?), coffee houses galore and STREET FOOD. EVERYWHERE.
One of my first stops had to be Papirøen (Paper Island in English), meeting up with the crew I came from uni with (plus Louise, who lives there).
I didn’t have my bike yet, so it was a metro and a long walk for us. How a bike has changed my life. You need one if you want to get around in Copenhagen.
We came in the early evening, when the sun was shining and it was bustling with people.
HOW FREAKING COOL IS THIS PLACE? I know that any of my friends reading this are going to make me take them here when they visit.
Then there’s inside, with more seating and where all the food is at.
We swarmed through the crowds to try and see what was good. I did a lap to make sure I saw everything before making any hasty decisions.
I’d eaten a couple of hours before (big mistake) so I wasn’t all that hungry. I thought I’d take it easy with some Summer Rolls.
I’m still going strong as a Pescetarian, so the Spinach Omlette and Warm Smoked Salmon rolls sounded pretty good.
Sadly I was clearly not the only one who thought they sounded good. After waiting in the long line, I was told to come back in 20 minutes to pick up my order. Fineeeeeeeee.
I waddled outside to find everyone and to bag a seat.
No seat yet, but I did find two girls very happy with their drink orders.
Then, it happened. What are the chances that out of everywhere we could sit, we got to sit in one of the crates upstairs? YESSSSS!
I was majorly perving on Ekin’s Duck Buger. Holy crap.
This is delicious by the way. I can confirm by Ekin’s statement, and the 3 other people that I know ordered it on visits after this (obviously this was not the only time I went since I moved).
Lewis got a curry.
I skipped off after what felt like 20 minutes (it probably was about 5) and waited inside until my rolls were ready.
I got it with the Goma sauce, which I think was a mix of yoghurt and tahini.
It was light and perfect for how I was feeling. See, they literally have something for EVERYONE.
Can you tell that I’m excited by this place?
How could you not be? Book your flight to Copenhagen, make a ‘Must-Do’ list and whack this bad boy on here. Copenhagen 2015 OH YEAH.
