the copenhagen food hall (torvehallerne)

My first morning in Copenhagen last week consisted of a lazy breakfast, coffee at one of the many scandi-chic cafes, and my first foray into Danish bike riding (more on that later…). We biked it down to the Norreport area where the Torvehallerne is – food hall to you or I. Too much good food to feast your eyes upon!

First we eat. Then we do everything else.

In essence it’s an indoor market – but a sort of Borough/restaurant hybrid. A great place to get a good lunch with a tonne of interesting things to choose from. Although it houses fruit and veg stalls, as well as cheese, fish and meats where you can grab bits to take home, it also provides an enormous choice for a meal in a sociable atomosphere. Pizza, open sandwiches, mezze style selections as well as fresh juices, wine and coffee, it’s a great place to take newbies to the city who want to experience a chilled out (tasty) afternoon, Danish style.

The Torvehallerne has over 60 stalls in two buildings – you can find out more about here on the VisitCopenhagen website. Definitely somewhere to lose an afternoon sampling everything and anything!

It’s also worth me mentioning Copenhagen Street Food here – an amazing warehouse of food trucks which we visited and I, frustratingly, forgot my memory card! I sampled some Korean chicken as well as delicious pudding – it was a brilliant evening out. You can find out more about that here!
