Kødbyens Fiskebar

For our very last night in Copenhagen, and the last day of our trip together, Paisley and I decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal, deliberately ignoring the fact that we were already way over our holiday budget! There is no short supply of incredible restaurants in in Danish capital - it even boasts Noma, the thrice-voted best restaurant in the world, which has a three month waiting list - but we settled on Kødbyens Fiskebar. It was a no brainer really: they serve seafood, have received rave reviews left right and center, and are located in the uber-cool Vesterbro Meatpacking district!

First thing's first, though, our outfits, which were largely composed of newly purchased items from the Scandinavian high street...

Paisley wore: Monki midi dress& Other Stories bag and Vans - an all-new outfit!

And now onto the divine food (see menu), served in this edgy and understated restaurant...

We started with the best cocktails I have ever tasted (no exaggeration) and then ordered two starters: a selection oysters and a raw brill dish, served with shrimps, seaweed and green tomatoes - unbelievably fresh.

Next up: a "medium course" of blue mussels steamed in apple cider and herbs... yes, it did taste as good as it sounds!

And then, finally, our main courses. We ordered the hake, fried in seaweed butter, served with green asparagus, cucumber  horseradish and Spanish chervil and then, despite this being a seafood restaurant, we just couldn't resist the ribeye steak, served with onions and red wine. These dishes were accompanied by a bowl of adorable new Danish potatoes, so small and covered in green onion cress that we almost mistook them for olives! At the time, I honestly couldn't decide which dish I liked the best, but since then, I've had serious cravings for the steak and the mussels... oh and the brill... oh I still don't know!

Before we arrived at Fiskebaren, Paisley and I had been fantasising about the cheese platter we would surely order but, to our dismay, by the end of our main course we were just so stuffed we couldn't face the thought of it anymore. Sweet food must fill a separate stomach, though, as we easily found space for a delicious pear crumble with pear meringue, sherry vinegar, ice-cream and cherry beetroot gel. Sounds strange right? But, oh, does it work well.

Not quite willing to call it a night just yet, we ordered a couple of espresso martinis, watched a dramatic sunset over the industrial landscape of the meatpacking district, carried on chatting and were practically the last to leave.

Sensational food and the best company; a perfect evening. 

I'll be back one day Copenhagen, I promise!
