Last week I finally visited one of the prettiest restaurants in Copenhagen, Mielcke & Hurtigkarl. It is situated by the entrance of the Frederiksberg park and everything is very calm, airy and light. It feels like a green house and as a guest you feel like a precious orchid taken very well care of.
We went for the seven course menu and were started off with some pretty, little -yet quite filling- appetizers. Vietnamese tacos, Bánh xèo, with slices of duck heart and onion.
Followed by burning hot Japanese takoyaki – you know, I avoided them in Japan, but they were delicious.
Pigeon, elderberries, mushrooms and celeriac. No big fan.
Metallic petit fours and very pretty Royal Copenhagen china.Seven delectable courses and a wonderful night. I especially appreciated the Japanese touch in a lot of the dishes. The very bare, large tables with white table cloths do not exactly give any feeling of Danish “hygge” – cosiness- but the room is still so pretty that it makes you feel comfortable and welcome. Mielcke & Hurtigkarl is a definite winner!
