Three restaurants down, me and Amanda have lately been visiting restaurant Pluto, The food club Frederiksberg (madklubben), and District Tonkin is just old but gold.
Picture 1-2: Resturant Pluto, Adress – Borgergade 16, DK 1300 Copenhagen.
Picture 3-4: The food club Frederiksberg (madklubben), Adress – Solbjergvej 6, 2000 Frederiksberg.
Picture 5-6: District Tonkin, Adress – Mikkel Bryggers Gade 2, 1460 København.
First of all, I want to share my first experience at the restaurant Pluto which happens to be the most amazing restaurant I’ve ever gone to. The food is the best I’ve ever tasted, the staff is so kind and sweet, and the aesthetic is perfectly casual.
I personally went for hummus, bread, risotto, and rosé. And since Amanda and I went the first time, it’s been my favorite go-to restaurant.
The food club at Frederiksberg (madklubben), was also good but to be honest, compared to Pluto I don’t think it’s even close to being at the same level tastewise.
But don’t get me wrong the food was great and the staff was also sweet, and the aesthetic was pure danish designed.
But for me personally, it’s not a restaurant where I feel at home.
District Tonkin is a place where both me and Amanda have been a lot, it’s a really good Vietnamese restaurant, where you know exactly what you get which is really good Vietnamese food basically… and a little side bonus is that they have an amazing chocolate mousse for one of there desserts.
Plus it’s super affordable and super casual, perfect for a first date I would say.
But if you are a really big fan of Vietnamese food like Amanda and me, and are willing to pay a little extra I would defiantly recommend you to pay restaurant Lélé a visit, it’s placed at Vesterbrogade 40
1620 Copenhagen V and that is defiantly the best Vietnamese restaurant in Copenhagen.
It’s been a while since the last time I checked in here on the blog…
But If you are following me on Instagram you have probably already noticed that I had my first little adventure to Milan for about a month ago.
I was visiting Milan at the time because of my girl Melissa was already staying in the city to visit her boyfriend Philip, so I thought now that I had the opportunity to go live with them and have them show me around, why not take a little trip to Milan and see my girl that I had missed so much.
But, as you may already also have noticed (if you are following me on Instagram) I went to Milan again only a few weeks after..but I think we are saving that story for later.
But since it’s been so long since I was there the first time, I think I’m just gonna give you guys my quick thoughts about some of the things I’ve seen while I was there.
Milan is no doubt one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever been to.
The architecture is just stunning, Milan is… from what I have seen (which is actually not a lot yet) a charming old city with a lot of big beautiful buildings which has some crazy detailing going on, but that’s also what makes this city seem so majestic in many ways.
Especially on photos…I mean if you first capture the light hitting the buildings just right, then you’ll really see all of its details… I don’t know something magical just happens at that moment… and you really get the impression of the history behind the buildings.
Milan fashion feels
For most people, Milan is known as a fashion city were many huge brands in the fashion industry was born and raised.
You can feel that too while walking in the streets of Milan, I think people here are very much aware of what they wanna wear…or at least what high-end designer brand they wanna wear and what trends they may be following the upcoming seasons.
But I must be honest and say that so far I haven’t really seen anyone here yet who have blown my mind when it comes to style, which I’m actually a little disappointed about because I was expecting to get mind blown.
For me, It just seems like high-end designer brands, especially designer shoes is the way to go here … so if you’re wearing a very boring outfit but your shoes are from Balenciaga there will be no problem… you’ll be accepted as a fashionista here.
But only because of the shoes of course.
I’m just joking I’m sure it’s just me who haven’t ran into a real Milan fashionista yet.
If it’s real art, it can speak for itself.
The people and the food
Well as I already told you guys I went to Milan to visit one of my best friends Melissa, and her boyfriend Philip.
Those two are some of the sweetest people I know and I am forever grateful to have people like them in my life.
You know good friends can always make even the worst situation better, so I think it’s important to always stay in touch and never take your good friends for granted.
(M you know I would travel the world just to see you)
But of course Melissa and Philip have a lot of friends in Milan since Philip lives there and Melissa is soon gonna move there…so I got introduced to a lot of people at one time haha… and I must say it was a bit overwhelming, but I tried to keep calm and today I’m just happy that had the opportunity to meet so many lovely people.
Especially one…But I’m gonna tell that story later.
Oh and the food, well it tasted just as good as it looks.
So, if I’m ever gonna move to Milan I’m probably gonna end up being fat.
And of course there will soon be a video up from my first trip, so keep yourself updated for that.
But yeah as I said a few weeks after my first trip I went back to see this very special person that ended up meaning everything to me and in fact, that’s why I’m going to Milan again on March 9.
To enjoy the company of the love of my life.
So, my food loving friend Amanda and I, are always exploring the vast food Universe of Copenhagen.
You see, we have this kind of tradition, thats about going out for a dinner date at least one time a month where we are exploring a new restaurant every single time.
It so fun to hang out with Amanda while we’re eating delicious food, and we figured that, since this delicious tradition is working out just swell for us, why not share it with you guys?
Therefore, this “Hungry part (1,2,3…)” post is gonna be some sort of series here on the blog where Amanda and I are commenting on the restaurants that we’re visiting.
So read along if you wanna know our opinon about Gran Torino.
Our thoughts about Gran Torino:
” The food was delicious, the space was some kind of an Urban dream… but the sound in the room made me a little crazy, people were talking pretty fucking loudly, which is indicative of less than ideal room acoustics.. not the best of conditions for a romantic date… The food, however, was indeed delicious, which is obviously the most important part. Right guys? Right??. The dinner was comprised of a main course consisting of risotto with lobster and tiramisu for dessert. After these two courses, however, the fire of the deep hunger in our bellies wasn’t extinguished, so we had to go ahead and order another main course, but that could just be my insatiable culinary hunger clouding my judgment. #fat… 😉 “
I’m always hungry and therefor I often eat a lot of small unhealthy snacks if I’m bored.
But here the other day I thought to myself ” why not make a healthy snack? “ I mean my family has a whole garden full of vegetables!?
So I found some green kale in my grandmothers garden and made these kale chips.
They’re super easy to make and taste quite good actually, so if you want to give them a try, take a look at my recipe right here.
A lot of green kale
How to make the chips:
1) Set the oven to 160 degrees.
2) Wash the green kale.
3) Rip the kale into small pieces and spread them on the bakeplate.
