Paper Island Street Food Market – Copenhagen, Denmark

If you’re looking for a break from the plethora of excellent fine dining on offer in Copenhagen, I’d recommend a visit to Papiroen, or Paper Island. A giant shed housing a huge selection of ‘street food’ stalls, you’re going to need to go seriously hungry to this place! It’ll also give your wallet a little reprieve from Copenhagen fine dining prices which can’t be a bad thing.

Duck It! at Paper Island Papiroen CopenhagenFrom the dazzling ‘Discow’ suspended from the ceiling to the throng of locals sipping beer on the pier outside the market, this is a venue with plenty of atmosphere – and you’ll probably have to jostle for a seat. You can’t go too far wrong with your food selections here, and there really is something for everybody from every cuisine imaginable.

We loved the pulled duck sandwiches on offer, the nutella cheesecake and giant G&T buckets (from the wine bar near the entrance and Duck It!). The pulled pork burger and gyoza were pretty good too – but our recommendation would be steer clear of the tacos, probably the only dish we didn’t enjoy during our market feast. Portions are hearty so it pays to split dishes with friends.

Top Tip: Visit early (or late afternoon) to avoid the crowds.
