The city certainly has a lot of green choices when it comes to eating out. As a university student it is not my priority to go to restaurants, and as I love to make my own food I usually do so.
But when I eat out I look for places with fresh and healthy choices on the menu. This is my TOP 5 list of places to go and get some delicious food when you are hungry in the Danish capital:
1. Big Apple
This was one of the first places I went in, since it is right around the corner from our building. A lot of nice sandwiches (with a vegan option) also juices and smoothies. My favorite juice is called Garden Tonic with celery, beetroot and carrot. But you can always customize the things on the menu for your taste since the guys are super nice there and ready to help out. Also, on the first floor you can find the coziest sofa you can imagine, perfect for a talk after classes.
Big Apple. Fiolstæde 18, 1171, København K
A perfect place for a full 3-course meal, or just a sandwich on the go. With a green and sustainable menu filled with organic ingredients Botaniq provides the ideal atmosphere for you and your hungry friends.
The location is perfect for GNH students as it is right next to Norreport station on Frederiksborggade.
You can order a cold salad or a hot soup with bread on the side. They also sell a wide selection of the drink called kombucha tea, which is quite popular at the moment.
Botaniq. Frederiksgorggade 26, 1360, København K
This one is a bit further out from the center but it’s definitely worth a try! Large selection of raw foods( including delicious cakes and cookies ), gluten-free options and more. You can sit by the big glass wall and enjoy the always-changing view of Gammel Kongevej. My personal favorite is the big salad bowl, since I can mix and match the current salad and dressing options. (As an extra plus you can access the connected health store at any minute)
Raw Rustic. Gammel Kongevej 113, 1850, Frederiksberg C
Perfect for a night out or if you don’t know exactly what you want to eat. Here you can find a wide and colorful selection of international street food. As a fruit and veggie lover last time I choose Root Food and Street juice, but you can easily find your favorites too. In the colder months you can sit and warm up next to the fireplaces, in the summer you can enjoy the sunshine by the water and load up on not only on your calories but also some vitamin D.
Papirøen. Warehouse 7 & 8 Trangravsvej 14, 1436, Copenhagen K
5. Spisehuset Rub&Stub
Looking for a place to eat before a night out? Your parents are visiting? Or just want to eat out in a nice environment?
Spisehuset Rub&Stub is a great place to do all of these! Fighting food-waste with using surplus goods from the food industry, this restaurant is a good one to support as a GNH student. The menu changes every day depending on the selection they have available, but always with a vegetarian option. The staff is super nice and you can even ask for a refill with no extra charges if you feel hungry after you are finished.
Spisehuset Rub&Stub. Rådhusstræde 13, 1 th, 1466 København K
