“Dream in colours never seen before.”
Day 4 - I continued my journey to the pedestrian, car free shopping area in Copenhagen, Strøget. It is one of the longest pedestrian shopping streets in Europe at 1.1km. As I was walking down the street, a pretty decent cafe called Royal Smushi Cafe hidden in the "back lane". I ordered a dish called Smushi, which I was told by the staff that it is the modern version of smørrebrød. Smørrebrød is the famous Danish open sandwich that is usually served with a piece of buttered rye bread and with cold cuts toppings such as meat, fish, cheese or spreads. I chose a dish with 3 serves of smushi with toppings: (front to back) meatball with herbs and stewed summer cabbage, potato with lovage & tomato, and Chicken salad in smoked cheese with radish and lemon sugar. Simply delicious! I paid about 138DKK (~ 28AUD), which I personally see that as rewarding myself for walking few hours non-stop since I left my friend's place. Haha. Not to forget, Copenhagen Jazz Festival (July 3 til 12) was taking place while I was there in Denmark! It is an annual Jazz event each July in Copenhagen where musicians performing at more than 100 venues in Copenhagen and over 1000 concerts. The festival is one of Copenhagen's most important public festivals! There are posters along the streets that say Lady Gaga is performing with Tony Bennett at Tivoli Gardens for the Copenhagen Jazz Festival 2015. It's a shame I didn't get to go and watch that live! Bummer!
