Gone are the days when all Copenhagen had to offer in the way of take out fare was a hot dog stand or a barely nutritious China Box: These days, foodies in a hurry--or gourmands who would simply prefer to eat at home--can enjoy everything from authentic Italian pizzas, delicate sushi rolls and fragrant Thai take-out to the best in Nordic cuisine, all packed up to go.
Top of our list is a place that helped kick start Copenhagen's food revolution, Cofoco Le Marché. The menu here is not large, but the food is of excellent quality: So good, in fact, that Cofoco has expanded with restaurants all over the city.
Just as Cofoco showed us that French food is not to proud to be eaten to go, so too have Aamanns taken the traditional Danish lunch and handed it to us in a portable edition from their stylish Østerbro location. Another place offering superb seasonal Danish produce is Meyers Deli, out in Frederiksberg.
Copenhagen's gourmet food market Torvehallerne Kbh is a great place to start for takeout food: And if you're looking for pizza, Gorm's Pizza at stand G1 offers some of the best in the city. Hot dogs meanwhile are a Copenhagen staple; but for one that's a little more nutritious, the organic hot dog stand DØP operates Mon to Sat throughout the year next to the Round Tower.
Thai and Japanese food is well-represented in Copenhagen, and some of the best Asian take out boxes come from Aroii (there's a number of locations around the city, but the one on Hausergade has the best selection); and the original sushi chain in Copenhagen, Sticks'n'Sushi.
