Copenhagen is city dotted with Michelin starred restaurants, and they all come at a price. So if you don't want to fork out $350pp for a tasting menu (not including wine) but still want to try first class cooking with fresh Nordic ingredients, look no further than Radio.
The menu is quite small, but you can tell the selections are made with care. Radio offers tasting menus as well, but if you don't want to do the full tasting menu, they also offer many of the same dishes a la carte on Fridays and Saturdays for lunch. Just like their menu, the service and decor are also simple but show great care and class.
Before we get to the dishes, I have to comment on their caramelized onion(?) butter, which was so fragrant and light that I had to hold myself back from hogging all the bread. I then had a cabbage and scallop concoction which was perfect blend of savoriness and sweetness. I am generally not a huge fan of cabbages, but couldn't help clean up my plate! This was followed by one of the best fish dishes I have ever had. The meat literally melted on my tongue. I have never seen fish cooked to such perfection - white and firm, but once in your mouth, it dissolves and makes you crave for another bite! I was a little less impressed with our third dish - a pork and scallions dish that was tougher than expected to chew through. It was delicious, but harder to eat. The beautiful journey ended with a simple refreshing dessert.
Tucked away from the usual tourist attractions, this restaurant is a bit out of the way, but easy to get to by bus or train. It is absolutely worth going for a meal, and you better do so before reservations become hard to come by - you won't regret it!
