They call this food hall the poor man’s Torvehallerne and it’s easy to understand why. Unlike the sleek gourmet stalls on Israels Plads, the Copenhagen Street Food market is bohemian and alternative (the place is run as a co-op by the vendors), grungy even. But it isn’t without certain charms.

Set on I, the docks between Noma and the Opera that were once used to store newsprint, it enjoys some spectacular views of Nyhavn and Amaliehaven. Inside, it’s cosy with tables, sofas and fireplaces. Outside, it’s waterside chill with drinks, benches and sunchairs. Heat lamps and blankets make the place hospitable on colder days, DJs lay a soundtrack every night.

Besides bars, there are around 30 stalls and food trucks that peddle grub from all over the world. Not everything is great – safe bets include the yakitori skewers from Yatai, the Korean from Bulko and the spoon food from Spoon Company – but it’s inexpensive to sample; every stall is required to offer at least one proper dish for less than 50 kroner.

It’s a fun place to spend a lazy afternoon or a balmy summer evening (open year-round, hours are reduced during the winter and on rainy days). When Inderhavnsbroen finally opens, pedestrian access is easy from Nyhavn. Until then, the easiest way of getting there is jumping on a Havnebus harbour shuttle or bus 9A.
