Danes share their love of meat and potatoes cuisine with the vast majority of Europe, however, Denmark and Copenhagen have its iconic staples which should not be missed or overlooked.
- Smørrebrød, which are extravagant open-faced sandwiches, are typically composed of a rye bread base, with toppings ranging from pickled herring, roast beef, eggs & shrimp and so many more.
- The Danish hotdog, not to be confused with the American hotdog, consists of a sausage placed in a half-opened bun topped with raw onions, roasted onions, ketchup, mustard and topped with pickles.
- Stegt flæsk med persille sovs, which translates to crispy pork with parsley sauce and new potatoes, is Denmark’s national dish since 2014 where it was officially voted in.
Danish, as the Americans colloquially refer to it, or Danish pastry as it is more commonly referred to refers to the widespread assortment of danish baked goods which can be found at one of the many authentic Danish bakeries found around Copenhagen.
