Eating Out in CopenhagenEdit This
Copenhagen is a city where cultures unite, which makes the cuisine choices vast and delectable. Some eating customs are still specific to the area, but the meals themselves have grown since the days of rye bread and porridge. A few of the old meals are still eaten today but much of Danish cuisine has flourished into a more international standard. 5 meals a day used to be common in the pre-industrial times of Denmark, but today you will find the regular main meals that you will find in most countries - breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Meal times are similar to those you will find in the U.S. and many other large nations. Breakfast is usually eaten at home and is generally only eaten elsewhere on weekends or for special occasions. Somewhat typical of Scandinavian countries, many workers take their lunch in a lunchbox instead of buying it elsewhere, though you will still see this at times. Dinner in Denmark is usually a time that the whole live-in family attempts to get together and share a meal with one another. Danish families try to have this meal in their homes and only go out for special occasions.
Breakfast in Denmark is typically buttered bread, 2 different types of cheese, and strawberry jam washed down with numerous cups of coffee. Meat sandwiches are also a typical morning meal. The cereal and milk breakfast usually found in the U.S. is also a food you will see often. Children and elders still sometimes eat the meals of the past - porridge or breat-and-beer soup. Open sandwiches are often eaten for lunch, made at home and taken to work. These usually consist of bread, meat (land-animal and/or seafood of some sort), and a condiment such as horseradish or mayonnaise. Dinner usually has numerous courses - an appetizer of seafood, a soup (split-pea is a national favorite, but there are a variety), and a main dish which is usually typical of Danes (numerous fish dishes, as well as bird, beef, or a specially-made pudding). Ice cream is a very common dessert.
Since many Danes in Copenhagen and elsewhere don't go
out much for dinner, you will mostly see singles or those our for a
special occasion in restaurants. Though Danes love having company for
dinner, going out is sometimes warranted. For lunch, check out Ida
Davidsen, a restaurant serving typical Danish cuisine. For dinner, Noma
may be expensive, but worth every cent, boasting an experienced chef
and delicious local cuisine. Make note - for many restaurants, you must
