Your head is throbbing and your body is craving salt. Here are a handful of great places in Copenhagen where delicious food could cure your hangover, so take your pick from gourmet fast food, burgers, pizza, hotdogs, buffets ad libitum or perhaps even something healthy?
Hotdogs are perfect for hangovers, and Copenhagen has recently gained many alternatives to the traditional ‘pigs in blankets’ from Café Chilly Feet (the local hot dog stand). At Foderbrættet, the excellent gourmet hotdogs feature homemade sausages and home-baked buns.
Choose from four different gourmet versions including beef sausages with onions, coriander and garlic, lamb sausages with harissa, and smoked pork with Cheddar cheese etc. Or enjoy a fish dog if you prefer.
If you can string out your hangover until 17.00 p.m., Fabio’s Pasta & Pizza is the place to treat a headache in style. The classy interior, with chandeliers, candlelight and fresh flowers, is charming and in summer you can even sit outside in the cosy courtyard.
The pasta is homemade and the pizzas are topped off with authentic Mozzarella and tasty Italian ham, etc. You can also opt for a take away at very reasonable prices.
Vesterbro partygoers don’t let weekdays stop them enjoying a night out, and at Barbar Bar in the centre of Vesterbro Torv, you can get a big juicy ‘hangover burger’ from morning to night every day of the week.
Here you’ll find good, substantial burgers with extra bacon, dressings and chilli mayo, served with hand-cut chips.
If you fancy healthier food after a heavy night on the town, Botaniq, just opposite Torvehallerne is ideal.
The menu includes brunch, snacks, green sushi and hot dishes, all made of organic and vegetarian-friendly ingredients, and the menu is carefully combined with good health in mind. Many dishes are based on raw food principles and the coffee is served with homemade almond milk.
