After much tossing and turning, I finally fell asleep last night at 3am. When I woke up it was already 12 noon. I must have been super exhausted. Realizing that I already lost the morning, I headed out for Torvehallerne. It’s one of the biggest markets in Copenhagen featuring the best meat cuts, fresh fish, and small food stalls for people to eat in at the bars or take out. The market looks very posh and so Danish. The whole building is class to allow for ample amount of sunlight in and allows those outside to see all the happenings inside the market.
There’s definitely something for everyone. Cheese shop…
Bottled juice goodness…
Danish baked goodies filled the air, tempting all by-passers.
An abundance of fresh vegetables. Perfectly arranged, grown in a nice shape. The Danes approve.
Here, I also had my first Mikkeller beer. And let me tell you, it’s so good!! SO GOOD! They were recently featured in the NY Times. I’m not a big beer drinker, but boy did the beer go down easily with a smoked salmon asparagus smorrebord. I’m going to make sure I have a few more pints of Mikkeller before I go home.
And if only I had more room in my tummy..
I also tried an avocado, citrus, ginger juice from the juice bar. Their tag line? Look good naked! (So Danish) Great message, hits home, sticks with you. Bravo once again to the Danes.
..and as for my juice? Delicious!! You can barely taste the avocado, but the consistency is there. You can taste the ginger, and citrus.
And as always, there is a focus on relaxing, comfort and enjoying life. Like these girls..
And this couple, stealing a kiss behind the lemon tree.
