Lunch@Torvehallerne, Copenhagen

It is our last day in Copenhagen and, following advice from Karoline of Kødbyens Fiskebar , we are visiting the Torvehallerne. Torvehallerne is a foodmarket with stands selling everything from fresh meat and fish to exotic spices and fancy patisserie. It also has dozens of places to buy lunch.

As we wander round we are amazed at the variety and quality of the stalls. It all looks very appetising and we are getting hungrier with every moment that passes. Rock eventually decides to go back to get a mixed salad from one of the salad bars – leaving room for a danish pastry to follow. But, my attention has been grabbed by something else…

Stedsans Farm to Table Cuisine is an offshoot of an organic, sustainable eco-restaurant in Østerbro. They have a notice up advertising their 4 stage seasonal board which really appeals to me. While waiting for my lunch to be freshly cooked, I wander off to one of the craft ale stalls to get a lunchtime beer.

Back at Stedsans – my lunch is ready. First item on the board is carrot with smoked cream cheese. Then new potatoes with mature cheese. Next a beautiful piece of beef brisket with a herb butter. Finally strawberries with honeyed whipped cream, cocoa nibs and chocolate. Wow!

Great advice Karoline!

Wade and Rock are a UK based couple who love good food and wildlife and love travelling to find it. Wade does most, but not all, of the writing and the photography. Rock shares the eating experience and tells Wade when planned posts fall short on sense or style or taste. In the opinion of Wade (and many of our friends) she is also a fabulous baker. WadeandRockandFood mainly consists of reviews of restaurants and pubs we have recently visited. WadeandRockandWildlife and WadeandRockandPlaces are mostly photoblogs.
