Our friends at Scandinavia Standard have gone through the rigorous research of eating their way through the capital's kebab restaurants. Here they offer their picks for the six best joints in town.


Oh kebabs, you old frenemy. I love a good kebab. I may love them too much. Although in Copenhagen shawarma, falafel and other Middle Eastern fare are sometimes seen as the equivalent of fast food (or drunk food), I am going to have to raise issue on this one. A kebab done well has few betters in the food world and though they can be hard to find in Denmark, they are worth the search.
So Scandinavia Standard, that beacon of personal discovery, has done the digging so that you don’t have to. No, no, don’t thank us. Your full bellies and smiling faces covered in food are thanks enough (but seriously, wipe your mouth, that’s gross). Here are our favorite places for a kebab to-go or a plate complete with tabbouleh and hummus.
