Danish food

If you like food, you’ll love Denmark! Not only does it have one of the world’s best restaurants, noma, but it’s also Scandinavia’s gourmet capital with 22 Michelin-starred restaurants. It’s not all about fine dining though. If you’re in need of a good hearty meal, Danish pubs, inns and cheap-eat restaurants are great options. Traditional Danish food has enjoyed a recent revival. Eat like a Dane at the country’s eponymous hot dog stands, or by ordering a famous Smørrebrød (open sandwich) for lunch. With a vast array of world cuisine available too, you won’t be going hungry in Denmark!
