I always enjoy when I have family and friends visiting me here in Copenhagen. Last week my sister came and even though it was only for a short stay it was fun spending some quality time together. We are both into seafood and since the Fishmarket has been on my list to try I thought it would be a great idea having our dinner there. It’s very central located, close to Kongens Nytorv and Hotel D’Angleterre, on a small side street. The bistro only serves seafood which you can tell by the name if it ;-)
We had oysters served with vinaigrette, lemon and malt bread as a starter. The oysters were delicious and so was the slices of malt bread that had been toasted. As main course we both had mussels steamed with fennel, rosemary, garlic and parsley. Tasted good, but since I’ve had divine mussels in France nothing can really measure up to my favourite restaurant outside Paris.
For dessert my sister had crème brûlée with vanilla and I went fot the very sweet mousse au chocolat. My mousse au chocolat was served with whipped cream, chocolate sauce, pistacchio and pralines. I think it was way too much, the mousse itself was very sweet and adding all the other sweets just made it to a sweet sugar bomb…and even though I love sugar it was too much for me too. They should have kept it simple, mousse au chocolat topped with whipped cream…nothing else.
Overall, good food, nice restaurant and great company :-)
