3 vegetarian restaurants in Copenhagen that’ll make you drool badly

March 15, 2017 • 2 min read

Scandinavia, in general, has always been progressive when it comes to vegetarian food. Since more and more citizens are becoming vegetarians, more dining places have had to adapt. Great news for vegetarians! There are a bunch of vegetarian restaurants in Copenhagen, but here are 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. You’ll find vegetarian sausages, burgers, pizza, fish sticks and fejcon (fake bacon) among them. 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 high-quality local food. This vegetarian restaurant is listed in the top 10 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 the nearby 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, the vegetarian restaurant simpleRAW offers vegetarian RAW food of all kinds. Or how do hot ramen miso, poke bowls, zucchini noodles and rice paper with delicious stuffing sound? Simple Raw offers raw food at its finest; no colourings, additives, dairy products, sugar, yeast, gluten-containing products or preservatives are added to the mix, and they only use their recipes.

Up and coming: Noma has been one of the most hyped-up restaurants in Copenhagen for years. It was well-earned as well—in 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2014, Restaurant magazine ranked it the Best Restaurant in the World. Noma is closed for the better part of 2017, but it will soon open again as a half-time vegetarian restaurant. During the warmer months, the restaurant will be all-vegetarian. Keep an eye out on the restaurant’s Facebook page for when they open.
