Copenhagen Street Food
Copenhagen Street Food on Papirøen (Paper Island) in Copenhagen is the city's first and only genuine street food market. In the small food trucks you can get delicious sustainable street food from all corners of the world for only DKK 50 - and enjoy it indoors in the raw halls or in the sun overlooking the city's waterfront.
There is something very Copenhagen-like and something very foreign about Copenhagen Street Food. There are scents of Cuban and Mexican as well as Italian and Danish food from the small colourful food trucks, but the place - the raw halls in the maritime setting - has a destinct Copenhagen feel to it, that resembles that of Copenhagen's Meatpacking District. Something raw, genuine and authentic.
The ambitions are as high as the ceilings inside the great halls. They are to create a cheap street food market in Copenhagen, where both culture, food, sustainability and the good cause go hand-in-hand at the last untouched place in Copenhagen's harbour. There are about 20 food trucks plus a coffee truck and some bars, but the goal is to fill the halls with 40 food trucks and a beer bar.
One of the newcomers is Yatai by Jens Rahbek, the man behind the popular Danish sushi chain Sticks ’n’ Sushi. Yatai means street kitchen in Japanese. Here you can buy sticks with meat, seafood and vegetables, soups and small authentic Japanese dishes. Another newcomer to Copenhagen Street Food is Handmade, where you can taste a new version of the traditional Danish open sandwiches "smørrebrød".
Some food trucks serve organic food, but the priority is that the food tastes good, is made from scratch, and it must be sustainable, meaning for an example that the ingredients are not transported over long distances, but are local produce. "Genuine, honest and aesthetic" is the motto. Last but not least, you can eat a meal for DKK 50. Some dishes cost more, but there is always at least one option in that price range.
Events, music and art
Copenhagen Street Food is also a place for creative souls, such as artists and musicians, and there are often events and activities in between meals. Check out the website for what happens when you are in town.
The food market is on the so-called Paper Island (Papirøen), which is also inhabited by Experimentarium City science museum and designer Henrik Vibskov's new little coffee shop Den Plettede Gris. When it rains, you can eat inside, and when the sun shines you can relax in the deck chairs out on the pier, with one of the city's best views.
Please note that Copenhagen Street Food is open according to the weather, and if it rains a lot, it may close earlier or open later that day.
