Mini-bucks in Copenhagen

I am leaving Saturday for a week in Copenhagen at Womex, the expo of World Music. I am absolutely unable to pay what seem to be average Copenhagen restaurant prices and seek any and all recommendations for inexpensive dining (like dinners in the $25US/125 Kr range, lunch in the $15US/75 Kr range, plus or minus, preferably minus) or I will go totally broke while I'm there. I don't like fancy places anyway, but I do like tasty and healthy food. I will be staying at Wakeup Copenhagen on Carsten Niebuhrs Gade near Tivoli Garden, and going to events at the Bella Center and Copenhagen Concert Hall, in what seems to be called Vestamager, near Amager Faelled. Please advise!

  1. There aren't any responses to your post because it is difficult to meet your parameters in Copenhagen. We found it to be jaw-droppingly expensive. We were pleased to have a $100 3-course dinner for 2 at Den Anden, Fortunstræde 7, København K ( no wine).

    Halifax ( is rather far from your hotel, but not too far from downtown. And, yes, it *is* a burger joint. But it is a fantastic burger joint - hip bar atmosphere, but more importantly, I had the best veggie burger of my life there, slathered with sauce, homemade pickles and fried onions (choice of side; I had salad, lightly tossed in a balsamic vinaigrette). DH agreed that his burger was one of the best-ever as well. And he eats a lot of burgers. The burgers were about $20 (see above: jaw-droppingly expensive), but Halifax is a fantastic option for those nights when you are tired of dropping $200+ on a meal.
