Copenhagen Street Food

Hal 7 & 8, Papirøen, Trangravsvej 14, 7/8, 1436 København, Denmark

Don’t be confused by the name: This isn’t street food so much as dockside warehouse food. Walk over Inderhavnsbroen, one of the city’s newer bridges (opened in 2016), and you’ll cross from the heart of Copenhagen to a former industrial area that is now a foodie paradise. It is to the city what Borough Market is to London—a hugely popular attraction where people flock to eat great food off paper plates. Chinese, Korean, Italian, Moroccan . . . It’s all here and so inviting that it’s hard to know where to start. The only note of caution: Copenhagen Street Food is so popular that the weekend crowds can be intimidating.

Sip by the Sea at Cow Bar

I wasn’t quite in the mood for a drink yet, but a visit to Cow Bar to see the giant cow disco ball hanging from the ceiling was a must. I perused the selection of local and international wines and beers before realizing I wanted something sweet so I sampled the organic juices from Anton’s, a local juicery. Fun fact, purchasing a bottle of water at CSF supports the Original Red Danish Dairy Breed and the bio-dynamic farm Thorshøjgaard with a 5DKK donation. Stay hydrated, support sustainability!

An Island Of Food

Disclosure - I was involved in this project! We wanted to add diversity to Copenhagen‘s food scene, not to mention a bit of fun. A huge hall with a bunch of different food stalls, you can sample cuisine from Turkey, Mexico, Italy and more. Rain or shine, there is often something going on, from DJs to flea markets to cultural events.

Good food and good vibes

This place has it all. All types of food, types of people and types of moods. You can come here for a relaxing lunch or a vibrant dinner with a DJ spinning in the background. You will find Korean, Japanese, Chinese, Polish, British, Mexican, Scandinavian, Italian and the list goes on. Some of the places change so don’t go set on a specific type of food. I had Cuban the first time I visited but it was gone when I returned. I haven’t had anything I didn’t like so go and get something you love and try something new! The best part? The prices and the fact that most stalls take debit card. Tip: -Bring water if you don’t want to pay for one at the drink stall -US folks make sure you have a chip & pin on your cards if you don’t have cash.
