Kelly Jensen, aka thedanishgirl, is roaming around Copenhagen photographing the cityscape and discovering the best restaurants in town. From tips for a tasty brunch to her own recipes, her profile hosts any kind of delicacies. When she’s not making — or eating — delicious meals, Kelly loves taking pictures of her dog and her experiences while traveling around the world.
Thousands of contributors — some of them quite popular with the online community — from all over Copenhagen have done their bit to create the content of madaboutcopenhagen. From street food and refreshing drinks to luxurious restaurants, this Instagram profile will definitely come in handy for those who want to explore the culinary delights. Find out where and what locals eat and prepare for your trip in Copenhagen. What makes it even better is that madaboutcopenhagen is not sponsored by any of these places, so when they say they enjoyed a meal, they actually mean it.
If there's a perfect meal for sharing with your loved one it's injera. No cutlery allowed, so you kinda have to like the person (or people) you're eating with. And you can smile seductively across the table at them as you lick your fingers clean! 🙌💞Photo by @stramit #valentinsdag #madaboutcopenhagen
