Select Shopping | HC Ørstedsvej
The uproar over the decision to add cycle paths to one of Frederiksberg’s most historic streets is with good reason, as a large proportion of HC Ørstedsvej’s visitors are drivers who stop to shop – the range of shopping experiences is so good they can’t help themselves.
“The best quality plaice I have ever experienced,” enthuses Nina from Monellies about the fishmonger next door: Fisk & Færdigt, which is owned by British former Michelin chef Simon Longhurst. She’s also a fan of the homemade remoulade. On Thursday and Friday you can save kitchen time and get already-prepared dishes like quiches, sushi or fish frikadeller to take home. Simon is often known to do fish and chips, and it’s a great place to buy organic turkeys for Thanksgiving and Christmas.
HC Ørstedsvej 37B; open Tue 12:00-17:30, Wed & Thu 10:00-17:30, Fri 10:00-18:00, Sat: 10:00-14:00; 3535 1729; www.simonsfisk.dk
Fed up with the Danish obsession with white walls? Mandrup Poulsen, which was founded well over 100 years ago, has wallpaper to suit any taste, from pop art to brick walls, and from 1970s psychedelic to romantic flowery prints. It’s a great place to buy leftover sheets of wallpaper and products not typically found here, like wallpaper borders for decorating the kids’ room, and really odd accessories!
