It might come as a bit of a surprise that there is so much good quality vegetarian food in Denmark - a country traditionally known for its pork and herring.

Yes, we do love our meat here, but we also love things that grow - so much so that Denmark is a world leader in organic food, and even our street corner hot dog stands offer vegetarian options. 

There is a growing list of restaurants offering vegan and vegetarian options on their menus, along with speciality eateries that focus just on plant-based food. Here are just a few of Denmark's best options if you're looking for vegan and vegetarian food.
