Copenhagen report

Spent three nights with a friend. Didn't eat out much, but I did want to pass along my comments on reccs from this board.

Rizraz was lovely; Mediterranean vegetarian buffet, all you can eat, DKK59 for lunch, DKK69 for dinner. Wonderful falaffels, grated carrots, spicy potatoes, garlic dipping sauce, etc. The rice I found to be too al dente. They also had some kind of grated green-white root with poppy seeds. Any idea what this root vegetable was? It looked a bit like cucumber, but tasted and felt more like radish. Crunchy and tangy, mmm...

I had a divine hotdog from one of the many sausage vendors.They burrow a hole into half a baguette loaf, fill it with sauce and insert a sausage. PLEASE do not eat at a Jensen's hotdog chain, though. I made this mistake at the airport, and had to eat two danish pastries to get over my disapointment. At the oooother end of Copenhagen terminal (section 1? put your back to the Jensen's ice cream counter and keep walking straight for 8 min) there was a friendly looking guy running his own stall, and those looked much better.

The pastries were, as expected, delicious. My favourite was morgenbrood, a simple square pastry that the Danes insisted was good for a 'light' breakfast. Often covered in chopped, toasted hazelnuts or white poppyseeds, it was like a square croissant filled with just enough almond paste to moisten and sweeten the bread. Wonderful.

Oh, and for those following my addiction to dim sum:
Fu Hao, Colbjørnsensgade 15, 1652 Copenhagen V
Good, but NOT inexpensive! Felt bad after spending that much on a non-Danish meal, but hey, it was dim sum...
