COPENHAGEN STREET FOOD // PAPIRøEN



Sorry for yet another post from Copenhagen but I couldn't forgive myself if i didnt share this little gem of a place with you. One of my favourite spots in Copenhagen is Christianshavn - I lived there for a year after school and if I ever went back - I would love nothing more than to call it my home again ( I used to live in the apartment opposite from Helena Christensen, and would admire how glamorous her and her son looked on a sunday morning wearing tracks). Christianshavn is alos home to famous restaurant Noma (world's best restaurant) and if you havent heard of it then please do go onto their site and check out their incredibly menus.  And the infamous Christiania - the self governing 'freetown', is also a stones throw from Christianshavn metro station - well worth a visit - however its much changed from its original inception in 1971 you can still pick up a psychedelic artwork from a local artist and ponder lifes questions with a joint if thats what you are in to. With its colourful terrace buildings, beautiful canals and waterways, vibrant cafes and restuarants and the Golden tower overlooking you and gleaming in the sunshine there really is no place more 'hyggeligt' than Christianshavn in my eyes.

As we took an early evening stroll through the area we decided to grab a bite at the Copenhagen Street food markets and watch the sun go down with a glass of rose and a bowl of something yummy. 



 Papirøen (Paper Island) is a recently new development about 15 mins walk from christianhavn - an old industrial area that was home to the Procurement Associuation of the Danish Press and where they stored their paper (hence the name) These warehouse style buildings are now home to a creative hub of experiences for people living in the centre. A few shows during fashion week were held here and the Copenhagen Street Food project now calls its home here in one of the largest buildings on the site (warehouse 7&8)/






Copenhagen Street Food
 is a large street food market with over 25 food stalls, trucks and bars serving a variation of delicacies (international and local). Overlooking the Playhouse and Opera House you are instantly greeted by a colourful and vibrant atmosphere. A great place to meet for casual dinner and drinks after work and enjoy the late sunsets of the Danish Summer. You are guaranteed to find a meal that suits you as each place is forced to have at least one option on their menu that costs 50-75 kroner.













































































 wouldn't it be dreamy living on one of these house boats in the heart of Christianshavn...
