This the second time we picked up a restaurant right near the famous and old execution place, the first time it happened in Berlin.
The name of the restaurant is
(ae is not what the Dannish sign said, but I don't have this letter on my keyboard)
just outside of the old courthouse. Nytorv 5. phone 45 33 14 84 55
The first sign was scarry - EVERYBODY inside spoke English and no locals.
But...the food was EXCELLENT, I had chopped herring with blinies for appetizer, Sue had smoked salmon, which was out of this world.
My second was pan fried plaice, fresh out of the water, with sauce to die for and Sue had a traditional pork slices with red cabbage.
We tasted 3 aquavits EACH,
(Birger, have we passed the "good Dannish" test?)
1) Aalborg Dild
with hint of dill
2) Aalborg Taffel
with strong caraway presence
3) Aalborg Krone
with carawya, dill and "exotic spices"
Life is good! I recomend this place highly!
