From: Copenhagen, Denmark
Danish cuisine is straightforward, for the most part, and it tends to fall into three categories:
Roasted meats, frikadeller (Danish meatballs), and chicken are often served with potatoes and gravy. Fish is popular, both as an appetizer and as a main dish.
Denmark's open-faced sandwiches come in scores or even hundreds of varieties, with toppings that range from liver paste, smoked eel, or herring to more familiar ingredients like ham, cheese, and salmon.
The Danish equivalent of Sweden's smörgåsbord is a multi-course affair. You start by loading up on various types of herring, other seafoods, and salads, then get a clean plate for a main course that may include cold cuts, hot sausages, meatballs, and fried potatoes. Breads and a dessert buffet round out the menu.
In addition to classic Danish cuisine, you'll find a wide array of international choices in Copenhagen--everything from French restaurants to American fast-food chains.
