During B’s and my trip to Copenhagen we came across Torvehallerne, not far from Nørreport station, its a food market shelling out tasty goodness. There are two indoor food stalls packed with different vendors, from wine merchants to coffee connoisseurs, charcuteries to fishmongers to freshly baked breads.
B and I visited Torvehallerne several times throughout our stay always hunting out new edible treats, outside they have outdoor seating in and amongst the fruit and veg stalls. On our first visit we were feeling slightly drained and headed straight for The Coffee Colective, all they pretty much sell is coffee, hand-brewed to perfection in Kalita Wave brewers. Much like all of the stalls within the market, The Coffee Collective focuses on doing one thing perfectly, celebrating the craftsmanship behind their produce.
Following that we went on to enjoy Vietnamese 5 spice pork in a french baguette from Bánh Mì Daily, washed down with an apple, melon, ginger and wheatgrass smoothie from Vita Boost, both of which I would recommend. However the crowing jewel for us was Hallernes Smørrebrød (Hall’s Sandwiches), they were amazing!
Apparently open sandwiches have long been up there as one of the top Danish delicacies, but they had somehow managed to escape me. Not only do they look like 5 star Michelin dining served on a paper plate, they also taste incredible. We had Salmon & Cream Cheese with fennel, Beef & Horseradish with deep-fried onions and then breadcrumbed Sole with lemon and Hollandaise sauce. They were amazing, if you ever get a chance to visit Copenhagen you would be mad not to pay a visit to Torvehallerne.
