When the Christmas comes closer, I love to visit Torvehallerne. The place is full of Christmas treats. Yesterday my parents visited Copenhagen, and I took them with me to try some of them. Here are my top three things to eat and drink when visiting Torvehallerne in December.

Swedish “lucia buns” at Café Rosa
In Sweden we have something called a lucia bun. It’s a sweet bun with saffron, that we eat in December. It’s really hard to find lucia buns in Copenhagen, so when I realized that my favorite café in Torvehallerne, Café Rosa, sells lucia buns in the weekends in December, I was very happy.

French gløgg at Brioche Dorée
For the second year in a row, I’ve had French gløgg at this little stand. It’s quite cheap, only 30 dkk, and it taste delicious. If you’re lucky, you can score a seat in their small “bar section”, and look at people while enjoying a glass.

Rice porridge at GRØD
In Christmas time you eat rice porridge in both Denmark and Sweden. The small restaurant GRØD (grød means porridge in Danish) only serves porridge, and in December they have several options with rice porridge. In Denmark it’s usual to eat porridge with cinnamon, and I’m pretty sure that you can taste the version with cinnamon at GRØD.
