Copenhagen Street Food Festival

August 15, 2016

Who doesn’t love a good food truck when hunger strikes? This weekend I put my walking shoes on and walked down to Søerne for the first Copenhagen Street Food Festival, arranged by Kødbyens Mad og Marked, Rebel Food, Kitchen Collective,and YELP Copenhagen. The whole area from Dronning Louises Bro, up towards Åboulevard, and Sortedam Dossering was filled with small food trucks and the smell of food was in the air, despite the somewhat bad, occasionally rainy, weather.

Jacob was hungry, so he tried the veggie tacos from Yuca taco and they were sooo delicious – even though they were out of guacamole when we came. I loved to see so many people that came out to enjoy the good food and hang out. It was a very well organised event with lots of places to sit (maybe a bit too few waste baskets though), food from all over the world and options for everyone. I’d love to see it come back next year. I am always amazed by what good chefs can do with little means.

A lot of people came down to enjoy the food despite the occasional rain.

I went for the pearl barley risotto, veggie balls, salad and a dressing with some parmesan on top. Absolutely delicious!

As you can see above I went for delicious veggie balls from a place called Average Meatballs, paired with pearl barley risotto, some salad and a dressing, it was the perfect small lunch for me. It tasted exceptionally well and I could have eaten 2 more of these, but it was enough to leave some room for a bigger dinner later in the evening.

Copenhagen Street Food Festival was a great event for all of us foodies – with lots of vegetarian options!

If you missed the food festival but love street food, I suggest you visit Copenhagen Street Food on Papirøen which can easily be reached from Nyhavn in central Copenhagen.
