Our first night in Copenhagen we headed to the Entertainment District to dine at Restaurant Radio. I don’t know how Tom finds these places, but his dining radar is always spot on. Radio is a small industrial looking restaurant right across the street from the Music Conservatory Concert Hall and near the big Forum for colossal events. We just missed the show rush, and the staff were taking a breather when we sat down. Tired from traveling, we relaxed while the waiter explained the 5 course menu. The emphasis on vegetables was something new for us:
Radishes slightly blanched with cheese. Who knew radishes could be so good?
Scallops with potatoes in foam
Onion crisps over onion puree with onion bits.
Fried Sweetbread with cauliflower slices, cauliflower cream, dill and pickles. Very rich.
Roasted chicken with fried chicken skins, celery. This dish had an array of flavors from sweet and mild to salty intense. I’m not a huge fan of celery, but the wisps of celery cut the fried saltiness.
For dessert, carrots boiled, dehydrated, then re-hydrated with concentrated carrot juice, chamomile ice cream and meringues, caramel made with condensed milk. The intensified carrot flavor with the caramel is a match made in heaven.
