August is soon over and soon will the dark months come and make a little bit boring so sitt outside and enjoy good food and wines. Therefore I desided to make a quick visit to one of my favorite get away town for 2 days and one night and enjoy some good food and wines. The town I´m talking about is Copenhagen, capital of Denmark and one of the best towns in the world when it comes to restaurants and food, according to all studies that is made.
This time I arrived by train to Copenhagen Central Sation, and the sun was really shining at it´s best. The train takes about 3 hours from Gothenburg, so I as little hungry when I arrived, so my first mission was to find food and lucky me that Tivoli is just across the street from Copenhagen Central Station. Tivoli have open up Tivoli Food Hall and I haven´t tried that one before, so that will be perfect for a quick pre-lunch before check-in at my hotel.
Choose sushi for this pre-lunch and the Letz Sushi Tivoli. Nothing special, just a 8 pieces classic sushi plate and a glass of Grüner Veltliner from Gruber Röschitz sense that was the only one by the glass. Finish and had to my hotel, and this week was a really hard time for me to find a room and I need to stay in the centrum so I can walk around the many restaurants and winebars and enjoy the food and wine whitout take a taxi back to my hotel when I finish for the night. I find a room at WakeUp Copenhagen, this hotel chain is a part of ARP HANSEN HOTEL GROUP which I normal stay at when I´m in Copenhagen. When I stay at WakeUp hotel, I don´t my points at ARP HANSEN HOTEL GROUP which I think is a very big negative.
After check-in was it time for my real lunch and that I had at one of my favorite trattorias/winebars; Trattoria FIAT. This italian place is great, every time I´m in Copenhagen I have at least one glass of wine here. Simple pasta ragu and some glass of PRIA Barbera d´Alba. Wall to wall there is GEIST where famous headchef Bo Bech work, so whats better to stop by here for a glass of wine and look at all the people that walks/ runs to somewhere to be and the beautiful Hotel d´Angleterre. All this is located around Kongens Nytorv. After this glass I went down to the docks and took a seat on Naervaer Strangade for glass of wines. For my first time I drank a glass of Ultimate Provence Côtes de Provence Rosé 2018.
Time to hotel and change before dinner with my french friend. On the way back I visit one of my other favorite winebar in Copenhagen; Nebbiolo Winebar. Now I´m back on white wine and one of my favorite producers from Alto Adige/ Trentino is J. Hofstätter and Nebbiolo have some of theirs wines by the glass and this time I went with Gewürztraminer. Lovely wine and as always they give you small plate of olives, hams and cheeses.
Time for dinner at Fishmarket with my friend and we both like fish and seafood, so Fishmarket will be perfect. Theirs seafood platter is great, but this time we went with their dishes of the day. That was Hake with mushrooms as starter and grillet Mullet as main. Have to say that this was not good. Dry, very little taste and very small portions.
I can write so much about Copenhagen, and I will do that later and give tips on my favorite places to visit and maybe that can help you when you visit Copenhagen.
