It's a traditional Nordic treat that will take your tastebuds on a journey to the heart of Denmark.
But we haven't forgotten about our plant-based patrons. Our menu also includes a variety of vegetable dishes, such as our Red baby gem salad with peas, broad beans, and foraged herbs dressed lightly with buttermilk, or our Råraka - a Swedish potato cake served with brined leeks and Danbo cheese.
