Let me introduce you to quite a spectacular place. In the top of the tower in the photo above, you’ll find a restaurant. Before I tell you about the restaurant, let me tell you about the building. What you’re looking at right now is the Danish parliament. Until half a year ago, the tower used to be a layer building, where old statues stood collecting dust. But in came the famous Danish chef Rasmus Bo Bojesen – a man that has worked at several Danish Michelin-restaurants and runs a high quality chocolate brand. And then Restaurant Tårnet happened.
To get to the restaurant, you need to pass through a security check. After all, you’re in the parliament building. One elevator ride later, you’ll step into one of the most amazing restaurants you can imagine. My friend Maja, who is a famous Danish chocolate blogger, and I were welcomed by Rasmus Bo Boejsen himself, and he both introduced us to the restaurant and his visions for it as well as for the seven cakes that was on the menu.
We were invited to try one of each, and for two food bloggers it was like a dream come true. The cakes they serve are organic, and the restaurant try to work with lots of organic and local produced ingredients in most of their dishes. It was pure joy to try all of the cakes.
The restaurant is much more than “just” cakes, but when looking around, I could spot several others just there for the cakes. One piece of cake is 35 dkk, and if you book an afternoon coffee seating, you’ll get three pieces of cake and a cup of coffee or tea for 135 dkk. That’s really good “cake value” for your money, if you want good cake in Copenhagen. And this one is even with a view!
The tower, Christiansborg. You might need to book a table in advance.
One piece of cake 45 dkk, three pieces of cake and coffee 145 dkk. For the dinner menu, check out the menu at the website.
