How the culinary scene in Copenhagen has developed since the millennium is nothing more than a miracle, especially for the vegetarian, pescatarian and vegan community. Gone are those bleak years when vegetarians were subjected to one humiliation after the other. Today, non-meat eaters, with yours truly amongst their numbers, are being fettered with inventive, visually seductive and delicious tasting menus and none has contributed more than the chef and gastro entrepreneur, Henrik Yde-Andersen.
In 2016, the lacto-vegetarian restaurant, VeVe, joined Henrik’s growing family of Michelin acclaimed restaurants, all inspired by his passion for Asian influences and local ingredients. The mix of minor explosions of joy from the tasting menu, an attentive and knowledgeable team, packaged in an informal nordic atmosphere in a former bakery building, contributes to a wonderful dining experience. Embarking on the tasting menu brought back gastro memories from Hanoi’s street kitchen to Istanbul’s culinary sophistication.
At the beginning of the millennium I worked in this district and was a regular visitor at the bakery, one of the best in a city back then. It is marvellous that this warehouse is now home to a restaurant crafting playfully culinary delights taking vegetarian cuisine to new heights. VeVe take a bow!
