Danish countryside is beautiful, but as a vegetarian it’s not so easy to get by on eating out.
There are plenty of meat options on any given menu, grilled, fries and boiled sausages, ribs and steak.
A pescetarian (vegetarian but also eat fish and seafood) would also do well. Fish patties, pickled herring, grava lax and scampi are on most menus, though one scampi sallad came with 5 scampi and 15 pieces of some kind of undefined meat in it!
Shopping for a barbecue was not much easier. The plan was to grill Halloumi, but after searching through the whole store I asked a guy and the answer came back:
“Never heard of it.”
I tried rephrasing the question:
“Do you have any sort of cheese that can be grilled?”
“Do you have any soy sausages?”
“ANY vegetarian sausages?”
“Anything vegetarian at all?”
I ended up serving barbecued corn on the cob….
On another note, finding organic produce was also hard and recycling is not easy either, the only thing that gets recycled it glass! 😦
Time to shape up Denmark! 🙂
