Scandinavia in general has always been progressive when it comes to vegetarian food. Since more and more citizens are becoming vegetarians, more dining places has had to adapt. Great news for vegetarians! There is a bunch of vegetarian restaurants in Copenhagen, but here’s three that’ll make you drool badly!
1. Astrid och aporna Spiseri, Jægersborggade 39
Astrid och aporna has been famous in Sweden for a long time, creating vegetarian substitutes for sales. Among them you’ll find vegetarian sausages, burgers, pizza, fish sticks and fejcon (fake bacon). In 2014 they opened their restaurant Astrid och apornas Spiseri on Jægersborggade 39, a hip street filled with cute cafés and cool shops in Nørrebro. Their motto is “Feel good fast food”, meaning they’ll serve classic vegetarian fast food dishes with a twist, as much as possible with their own products.
2. Souls, Melchiors Plads 3
Souls is a vegetarian restaurant founded by two Australians. If you eat here, you can expect local food of high quality. This vegetarian restaurant is listed in the top 10 of vegetarian restaurants in Copenhagen, and it’s no wonder; on the menu you’ll find everything from tofu steak to bbq mushrooms. Souls is open for breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. Why not combine a meal with a visit to nearby located Little Mermaid? Melchiors Plads 3 is located quite close to the inner-city of Copenhagen.
3. simpleRAW, Gråbrødretorv 9
Located as central as one can be on Gråbrødretorv 9, vegetarian restaurant simpleRAW offers vegetarian RAW-food of all kinds. Or how does hot-ramen-miso, poke bowls, zucchini noodles and rice paper with delicious stuffing sound? simpleRAW offer raw food in it’s finest; no colorings, additives, dairy products, sugar, yeast, gluten-containing products or preservatives are added to the mix and they only use their own recipes.
Up and coming: Noma has been one of the most hyped-up restaurants in Copenhagen for years. Well earned as well – in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014, it was ranked as the Best Restaurant in the World by Restaurant magazine. Noma is closed for the bigger part of 2017, but is soon opening up again as a half-time vegetarian restaurant. During the warmer months, the restaurant’s going to be all-vegetarian. Keep an eye out on the restaurant’s Facebook-page for when they open.
