Select Shopping | Where cooked raw is how we like it

Some might recoil at the thought of eating uncooked food that isn’t sashimi, but for health fanatics or those simply looking to introduce some extra freshness into their diet, raw food is the way to go. And with these gourmet picks, you won’t just be munching on carrot sticks!  

 

42°Raw 

At Copenhagen’s first raw food bar, there isn’t an oven or stove to be found in the entire establishment. The food is ‘cooked’ to a maximum of 42 degrees (hence the name) in one of the café’s many dehydrators, which help the resulting dishes retain their maximum nutrients and enzymes. Don’t miss this eatery’s milk and flour-free banana pancakes or sandwiches made with homemade gluten-free bread. All the dishes are also 100 percent vegan. 

Pilestræde 32, Cph K; open Mon-Fri 10:00-20:00, Sat 10:00-18:00, Sun 11:00-17:00; 3212 3210; waterfront location at Tuborg Havnevej 4-8, Hellerup; open Mon-Fri 07:00-20:00, Sat 09:00-17:00, Sun 10:00-16:00; 3210 4044;  www.42raw.dk

 

The Raw Tribe

Looking for healthy, organic, and vegan food that is uncooked? Look no further than The Raw Tribe.

simpleRAW 

The creators of simpleRAW (who founded the eatery in 2010 in a Vesterbro apartment) believe that at its heart, food should be simple and with minimal processing, consisting purely of vegetables, fruits, seeds and grains. Therefore, the café’s offerings are completely preservative and additive-free and are made without dairy or gluten-containing products. Don’t miss their tapas lunch menu.

Oehlenschlægersgade 12, Cph V; open Mon-Sat 10:00-22:00, Sun 10:00-19:00; 3535 3035; www.simpleraw.dk

 

Raw Sum

While much of the raw food industry relies on vegan ingredients for obvious reasons, Østerbro’s Raw Sum has broken the mould and begun to incorporate meat, fish and seafood into their menu offerings, including sushi. Elsewhere, try their vegetable-based pizza slices, lasagnes and oriental noodles, or their freshly-made juices and smoothies. The cafe uses purely recycled products for their utensils and takeaway packaging. 

Rosenvængets Alle 2, Cph Ø; open Mon-Wed 11:30-16:00, Thu 11:30-19:30, Fri 11:30-15:30; 3210 0310; www.raw-sum.dk
