Copenhagen Restaurants Open on Sunday

Whether you’ve returned from overseas to an empty fridge or you’ve resurfaced after an especially busy weekend, the problem on a Sunday night is often the same: you’re crabby and jet-lagged and—dammit—what do you mean all the supermarkets have closed? Here, then, are a few of our favorite restaurants that are open on Sunday evenings, spots that will end your weekend in style—or give you a very decent plate of homecoming nosh.

Here’s where to get a good meal on a Sunday:

Nice To Your Wallet

Copenhagen Street Food

It’s Sunday night: you’re miserable, hung-over or jet lagged — possibly all three — and can’t decide where to eat. Simple. Head to Papirøen and choose from dozens of food trucks offering tasty grub from around the globe. Top tip? Go for Copper and Wheat’s double-fried duck-fat fries or the Brazilian churrasco BBQ at Brasa.

Gasoline Grill

Foodies flock to this former petrol station in city centre every evening—and with good reason. Gasoline Grill does Copenhagen’s best burgers, bar none. Proof? Among the students and other savvy locals in the line, you’ll likely spot some of the city’s top chefs. But get there early—these burgers sell fast.

Grisen

Danes love few things more than flæskestegssandwiches—soft buns filled with roast pork, red cabbage and gherkin—and this traditional grill bar north of the lakes does the city’s best. Make like a local and order extra crispy pork rinds, before washing it all down with a glass of Cocio chocolate milk.

Ramen To Birru

You won’t find a better cure for the Sunday blues than a steaming bowl of broth served up at Ramen To Birru. Launched by Japanese restaurant Bento and cult brewer Mikkeller—who supply the craft beers—this authentic joint provides nourishing fare and is the perfect spot for seeing off the weekend.

Upscale Eating

Almanak

Chart a course for this stunning spot at the Standard — the Art Deco building by the harbour — and you’ll be rewarded with exemplary modern Danish cuisine. Almanak takes its name from the annual calendar of astronomical data and the menu sticks admirably to the seasons. Expect plenty of shellfish, along with fruits, vegetables and berries, plus hearty Danish fare such as organic pork with lingonberries and gravy, and pan-fried breast of wild duck with sprouts and celeriac. For a quick dinner, go for the Almanak Standard—three courses for 350 DKK.

Be sure to look out for the bespoke beers produced by local brewer Mikkeller.

Restaurant BROR

If you fancy a challenge, try to nab a table at BROR, a casual spot in the Latin Quarter. Since its 2013 launch, former Noma chefs Victor Wagman and Samuel Nutter have wowed diners with their nose-to-tail cuisine. Their uncompromising approach to “simple and good food” has won them a Bib Gourmand award for three years running. Expect snacks like deep-fried bull testicles and mains such as ox heart with potatoes, chanterelles and gooseberries. Wash it all down with a bottle of natural or biodynamic wine.

El Nacional

From Peruvian ceviche to Venezuelan arepas to Mexican staples such as tortillas and guacamole, you’re bound to find something dazzling at this Latin American spot. As well as classics like pisco sours and margheritas, you’ll find a head-spinning selection of cocktails made with rum and mescal. Who says Sunday nights have to be boring?

Höst

Marrying traditional methods and seasonal ingredients, the cooking tilts towards New Nordic (think: scallops smoked with juniper with walnuts and pickled pine needles; salt-baked celeriac with truffles and hazelnuts.) Though Höst has several menu options, five courses for 395 Kr is not only exceptional value, but also spot-on for a Sunday evening. The award-winning interior design—stucco brick walls, wooden frames, rustic accents—is minimalist, warm and inviting.

Manfreds

Their beef tartare may well be the best in town, if you’re into that sort of thing. But if not, make a beeline for this buzzing spot anyway to enjoy some of the best vegetarian cooking in town. The Nørrebro restaurant specialises in seasonal produce, most of it from owner Christian Puglisi’s farm 40 minutes west of Copenhagen. Dishes are served family-style; at seven for 275 DKK, they’re exceptional value.
