Tucked away in the Danish capital's, Latin district, the interestingly named Greasy Spoon offers a fun diner experience that will have you coming back for more. The place is a great blend of mood-lit bistro and traditional American diner, a concept that is mirrored in the menu thus offered. The focus is on All-American comfort food that never fails to bring expats and tourists in droves! Top picks here include Big Cheeseburgers, onion rings, and the strawberry milkshake (lots of delicious milkshakes on offer here). The prices are affordable, the service is friendly and the offerings are quite tasty.
This is a very popular old-style lunch restaurant, not far from Hjbro Plads, dates back to the 18th Century, and has belonged to the Kik family since 1910. Kik is a place where ordinary Danes go for lunch with a beer and schnapps. In this crowded, smoky restaurant, the traditional smørrebrød, (open-faced sandwich) reigns supreme. Here, you won't find a single leaf of coriander or drop of balsamic vinegar: this is old-school Danish. All the open sandwiches available are lined up on a big table, and what you see is exactly what you get! Then you order, and while you wait at your table the open sandwiches are freshly made, typically with rye bread, butter, herring and onions or mature Danish cheese and a drop of rum. Another classic is smoked salmon with fresh dill on it. A good selection of Danish schnapps is available.
If one person is associated with the Danish smørrebrød (open sandwiches) par excellence, it must be Ida Davidsen. In the 1960s she composed the world's longest à la carte list of smørrebrød, which still has locals, tourists and celebrities flocking to her shop. Once you're in line at the sandwich bar, you can pick and choose from a wide range of ingredients and fillings to create your own custom smørrebrød, or you can try one of their tried and true favorites. Be sure to make a reservation.
This is an extremely popular sandwich bar with a range of interesting sandwiches and quick service. Whether one opts for an exotic or regular sandwich, the ingredients are fresh and full of flavor. A variety of salads are also available. In all their preparations, one has the choice to add or subtract ingredients, but it is best to go with the recommendations. Some renovations have made the relatively small space brighter and able to accommodate more people. The most popular sandwich seems to be the Club sandwich with chicken, bacon and curry dressing.
