Take your tastebuds on a journey.
Jutting out into the Øresund, Reffen – Copenhagen Street Food has the best views of the water and an amazing atmosphere to boot. Here, street food chefs have set up shop in old shipping containers, offering food from over 17 different cuisines. Exploring the tastes of the world from the comfort of Copenhagen has never been so easy! [Photos: @reffen_copenhagenstreetfood]
Most of the material used to build this vast food hall has been recycled and the chefs are encouraged to use organic ingredients to make their dishes. Reffen isn’t just a place to eat (although we strongly recommend that you indulge yourself here). Organisers run events here like workshops and quizzes so that you can exercise your brain whilst you stuff your mouth.
If you’re looking for the crunchy deliciousness of a corndog, look no further than the aptly-named Corn Dog stall. Watching them fry the food and slather it in the tasty sauce will certainly get your mouth watering.
On the hunt for some Asian flavours? No problem! Check out Dhaba Kitchen for some rich and complex Indian food. Their naan bread is to die for. Try not to spend all of your wages if you happen upon the Everest Food stall, but it might be difficult to resist their momo noodle soup or butter chicken!
There’s always room for dessert and you won’t regret a trip to the Bad Habits food stall for one of their amazing milkshakes. The unicorn milkshake really lives up to its name: it’s pretty magical.
Of course, after all of that hard-work, eating your way through the food hall, you can enjoy a few cocktails or beers and relax in the exciting hustle and bustle of the food market. It’s a brilliant place to catch up with family and friends, appreciating the flavours of the world from your own city. Reffen will, of course, have to stick to certain guidelines when it re-opens next week but it’s not clear how this will work yet. However, you can keep up to date with what’s happening on their Facebook page.
We’re can’t wait to visit the new food stalls, at which we will be able to try Thai food, paella, Hungarian goulash, tacos and kebabs, amongst many other tempting dishes. The only way to try them all is to head to Reffen next week, and we know you can’t eat everything but we will certainly try!
You can read more about the different food stalls and book a table on Reffen’s website.
