The first Grød restaurant opened in 2011 in Copenhagen with the goal to persuade people that porridge can be a delicious and hearty meal. Six years later there are four restaurants in Copenhagen and one in Aarhus. Apparently, the people behind Grød managed to make porridge part of locals’ food habits. Grød in Aarhus is situated in Aarhus Central Food Market serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner inspired by the local and international cuisine, with porridge always being the starting point.

The Hummus & Pita Bar

Restaurant, Middle Eastern, Vegan, Vegetarian

In Denmark, there are many restaurants serving delicacies of the Middle Eastern cuisine; falafel, hummus, tabbouleh for vegans, or lamb and chicken shawarmas for meat lovers. It’s a cheap, easy, and tasty way to fill your hunger, so a restaurant of this kind couldn’t be missing from this list. Hummus Pita Bar opened a few months ago but it seems it’s already becoming a local favorite. Except for falafel, the cozy place offers many vegetarian delicacies inspired by the Lebanese cuisine, as well as salads.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
