David Dencik’s favorites in Copenhagen

Even though David Dencik was born in Sweden, it’s the Danish capital that he calls home.Here are some of his favorite places.

 

The Agricultural College Garden

What a wonderful little botanical garden, located just around the corner from our house. I often go there, for a thousand different reasons – inspiration for our garden, to play with the children, and to read, to name but a few.

New China Trading

This local shop, just around the corner, sells East Asian wares. For many years, it’s been my regular supplier of tea, sesame oil, oyster sauce, soy sauce, spices, slippers, candies, etc. Win, the proprietor, is a force of nature, always keen to chat about the large and the small. Once I found her singing a -Chinese song and doing a little dance behind the counter. Every now and then, she performs with a Chinese choir. This is often the type of business that gets lost as globalization takes hold in big cities around the world.

Geranium

The world’s best meals are served by the world’s best chef, Rasmus Kofoed, in a restaurant located inside the national soccer stadium. The first three-star restaurant in the Nordic region and a winner of the prestigious Bocuse d’Or and innumerable other awards and prizes, Geranium offers a huge range of vegetarian dishes, among other options. A friend for many years, Kofoed is a great culinary artist.

Dyrehaven

Serving genuine Danish “grandmother’s cooking,” this Copenhagen inn is a cool spot for lunch in fun surroundings. My wife and I lived around the corner for many years, so the neighborhood, Vesterbro, has a special place in my heart and is always worth a stroll.

Inner Harbor Bridge

This combination pedestrian and cycling bridge across Copenhagen’s Inner Harbor, connecting Nyhavn and Christianshavn, stood -unfinished for many years, the -contractor having gone bankrupt. Then, it was discovered that its pathways were misaligned, resulting in a few uneven corners here and there. Since I became a parent, I use the city, my home town, in a different, less expansive way. And when crossing this bridge, I always find myself feeling like an old-time Copenhagener on a sightseeing tour, which is what I guess I am, to some extent.
