Let me introduce you to my best “fish pusher” in Copenhagen, Fiskerikajen. This small fish shop and mini-restaurant is situated in Torvehallerne, the covered market downtown Copenhagen. No matter if I want fresh oysters or mussels, salmon for home made sushi or delicious fast food (yes, I love fish and chips!) this is the place to go. They have… well, so far they’ve never let me down.

For a long period of time, I only visited Fiskerikajen when I was buying ingredients for fish dishes. However, I’ve always looked at the people sitting in the window eating fish and chips from Fiskerikajen. It always looks extremely good. Hot and crispy. Smells fantastic.

A few months ago I finally had time to try the fish and chips myself. Ohh my. Have I ever tried better fish and chips? Probably not. After the first visit (which actually was way too short and hectic – me and the Film Critic Guy ate the fastest we could and then ran to the cinema to catch our movie in time) I kept asking the Film Critic Guy to go with me again. And again. And again. Finally he said yes, and when we visited last Friday evening I had an even better experienced than the first time, and I probably looked like a fool with fish pieces in both my hands, fat around my mouth and a silly smile. But that’s okay. I would happily look foolish as long as I get to eat those fish and chips.
