Looking for the most traditional Danish food? It's hot dogs – and it's worth a try, at least. Denmark is the country of pølse and Copenhagen is its capital. Here’s the list of the best street vendors
In Copenhagen, a distinctive scent invades the streets: that of street vendors’ grilled frankfurters. The pølsevogn has been part of the cityscape since the twenties and classic snack of locals. There are traditional fifty-year-old stands and gourmet ones, which are changing tastes and habits. Here’s our selection.
A new classic, DØP opened 9 years ago, and now serves only organic hot dogs in the city centre, in front of the Round Tower and one by the Church of The Holy Ghost. When they opened, they were revolutionary because they offered options for vegans and those suffering from food allergies. The choice of sausages is wide: pork, chicken, tofu, goose, with garlic or cheese. The most popular is the classic roasted, served with ketchup, mustard and remoulade, fried onions and pickles, or the simple one with stewed cabbage, beet and mustard, no bread.
Pølse Kompagniet goes beyond the usual pairing with mustard and ketchup, and adds different ingredients, mixing Mediterranean and Middle Eastern flavours. Twins Jakob and Niels Bjørndahl opened the shop in 2012, serving only prime quality sausages and frankfurters, without additives, such as the Moroccan Merguez with cumin, 50/50 beef and lamb, in a homemade sandwich with parsley sauce and spicy mayo. The best choice? The Superdog with lettuce, roasted rosemary potatoes, carrot with Parmesan cheese, bacon and red onion.
After opening a stand, the second address of John’s Hotdog Deli in town was added in the Meatpacking District in the fashionable Vesterbro district; Here, you can comfortably sit at wooden tables. You can create your own hot dogs, choosing between 10 different toppings among sauces and pickles – the specialty for which the place is famous. Take home one of their sauces as a souvenir.
After landing from a long flight, at Copenhagen airport, you can try a classic among pølsevogn by Steff Houlberg at Steff’s place. As the local fast food and a widespread chain across the country, it serves hot dogs, fried chicken and a few dishes. Their sausages are also available at supermarkets.
