Guide to Copenhagen - GRØDGrød Copenhagen

Every time my friends are visiting Copenhagen and I’m not there to show them my best spots, I tell them to go to GRØD. It’s a really tiny restaurant that opened about two years ago, and the only dishes they serve are dishes based on porridge (grød means porridge in Danish). Sometimes when I tell my friends of this porridge paradise, they shake their heads and look worried. Porridge? Can that be more than the boring porridge you do back home. And the answer is yes; it can be so much more. Try it!

On the morning, you’re able to choose between several different porridges with nuts, fresh and dry fruit and the Danish skyr. If you buy a coffee at the same time, you have a good start of the day.

If you’re close to GRØD in the evening, the restaurant also serves risotto, to eat there or to go. The restaurant is situated three places in Copenhagen. One at Jægersborggade (that’s the one I usually recommend for my friends, since it’s the nicest one), one in Torvehallerne, which is the indoor food market, and a new one in Guldbergsgade.
