After our morning spent cruising around the canals of Copenhagen it was time for lunch. The minute I read about Copenhagen Street Food, I knew that we had to go there. An entire warehouse filled with food trucks? Yeah, there was no way we were passing that up.

Located in Paper Island, Copenhagen Street Food is only a short 10 minute walk from the tourist center of Nyhavn. Once you’re there, you can nibble away at or gorge on delicious food to your heart’s content.

And gorge on delicious food to our heart’s content we did.

The first order of the day was to find ourselves a main course. We wandered around for a little bit before we made a decision, but the charismatic calls of the men working the DUCK IT stand pretty much immediately drew me in. I gladly forked over 85DKK for pulled duck and chips. And it was worth every last penny because that stuff was FRIGGIN’ DELICIOUS. The duck was perfectly cooked and the fries were crispy and seasoned with some sort of God seasoning. I seriously think I might have been having a wet dream while I was eating them.

Daniel, on the other hand, got himself a quesadilla from Taco’s Chuco. I sampled a bit of his and it was also decidedly delicious.

Next up? Dessert! This was also a very hard decision, but we ended up going with a cup of fresh ‘Summer Breeze’ juice and a chocolate banana milkshake from neighboring stands. We shared them and they were also both terribly tasty – the chocolate banana milkshake in particular.

If our wallets weren’t hurting so much, we probably would have gone for a third course.

But unfortunately, Copenhagen in general is just really expensive, so we had to hold ourselves back.

We were both in total agreement, however, that we had just spent our money very wisely. Not only was the food at Copenhagen Street Food absolutely amazing, but the atmosphere couldn’t have been beat. There were so many little details put into the design of the place – from the water bottle labels to the cool signage.

The mix of locals and tourists also gave the place a really interesting vibe. In particular, I loved the outside deck chairs. If we hadn’t had more things to do that day, I probably could have lounged there for hours and people watched.

MY FAVORITE TRAVEL TIPS & RESOURCES

Booking Flights: The first place I turn when I’m searching for flights is actually just Google Flights - it’s great to figure out what sort of routes are available. Then, I check Skyscanner and Kiwi for deals. I also love Kiwi for its destination: anywhere feature!

Transportation: I love Omio for figuring out the cheapest way to get from one place to another, and Trainline for booking train tickets within Europe.

Accommodations: I absolutely love Booking.com for finding great hotel deals. After you stay a certain number of nights, you get Genius discounts! For hostels, Hostelworld is my go-to, and I use Airbnb occasionally as well (click here for $40 off your first booking!)

Travel Insurance: I knew that I shouldn’t travel without insurance for the longest time, but I really learned my lesson when I got an infected cut in Bali. Thank goodness I had travel insurance! I use and love World Nomads for their extremely comprehensive coverage.

Tours: I always check Urban Adventures for great day tours of cities first–I’m obsessed with them! GetYourGuide and Viator are also great options. For multi-day tours, I highly recommend Intrepid.

Camera Gear: I use a Sony Alpha A6300 camera with an 18-105 mm lens and a 35 mm lens. My tripod is the MeFoto Backpacker Air and I loooooove it! I also use a DJI Mavic Air and a GoPro and which allow me to capture everything my regular camera can’t.
