Smørrebrød - bread
Near Amalienborg and close to the Citadel, our guide enters a cosy restaurant called Café Toldboden. He is planning on converting us to Danish cuisine. And by ordering Smørrebrød, he does a really good job of it! This traditional Danish open sandwich on rye bread, covered in herring, salmon or even roast beef or tartare, is a refreshing delight. While the range of options is vast, as the owners say and laugh: “If you’re in Denmark, you should have fish on your smørrebrød!” By the way, the Little Mermaid, Copenhagen’s most famous attraction, is 10 minutes’ walk from here.
