Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - Food lovers dream come true - Torvehallerne KBH Farmer's market and Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls Part 3!

In our 5 part series that covered the few days we had eating and exploring Copenhagen, Denmark.. we covered in Part 1 - hotdogs, icecream and snacks, Part 2 - Smørrebrøds of Copenhagen - Aamann's and Restaurant Schønnemanns! and now.. its a foodie's dream come true.. the Torvehallerne KBH Farmer's market and Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls!! Near and dear to the hearts of all local food lovers is their farmer's market. We loved it and it was easy to find just as you get off the Nørreport Station.  Its called Torvehallerne KBH (Address Frederiksborggade 21, 1360 København K) and it has the Israels Plads outdoor produce stalls right beside!

Tzin Wine and Tapas Edmonton, AB - amazing food, drinks and dessert - the bacon made me forget my name lol!

Lots of my friends have raved about Tzin since it opened and finally had a chance to try it out a few months ago (yes, I know - really need to work on putting up posts sooner!).  But lets get onto the food!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - Smørrebrøds! Aamann's and Restaurant Schønnemann Part 2!

In our 5 part series that covered the few days we had eating and exploring Copenhagen, Denmark.. we covered in Part 1 - hotdogs, icecream and snacks, and now its on to the Smørrebrøds! Smørrebrøds are delicious open faced sandwiches with local, traditional ingredients on a slice of (usually) rye bread and served with subtle and knock your socks off homemade schnapps!  While there's probably hundreds of places to have Smørrebrøds in Copenhagen, with limited travel time and tummy space, we focused on the two best places to eat it... Michelin Guide-recommended Aaman's which has a more modern spin thanks to Chef Adam Aamann and his team (Address: Øster Farimagsgade 10, 2100 København Ø ), and Restaurant Schønnemann, serving traditional fare since 1877 (Address: Hauser Plads 16, 1127 København K).  Since "best" is very subjective, we had to try them both.. for comparison's sake :)

Acajutla, Edmonton, AB - tasty place for El Salvadorian fare.. and pupusas!! :D

One of our good Salvadorian friends was in town and he was craving the Mariachi tacos from Acajutla (even though he was flying out to visit family in El Salvador the next day!)  We rounded up the crew to give him a proper send off - with a tummy full of tasty El Salvadorian fare!

Denmark in a day (or 3!) - Copenhagen - the hotdogs, sausages, icecream, and snacks! Part 1

Over the next little while, I'll be posting up blog posts about our travels - haven't had time to post up stuff from last Caribbean trip and just finished one to Denmark, Germany and Austria, so going to make the effort to make time to post!  Gonna start of by saying the folks in Denmark are so darn friendly, you just want to pick them up and hug them.. possibly most friendly country I've been in yet!
