Love vegan food? Miss the good ol' days? C'mon, who doesn't?! Well, here's something totally awesome that I recently discovered in Copenhagen's hip Christianshavn neighborhood - a super retro and super rad 100% vegan cafe and bar called VIDEO VIDEO.
Heads up, I was provided my meal in exchange for my review.
Inside the cozy yet chic dining area, you can find all kinds of fun memorabilia, everything from vintage arcade games, old school VHS movies (and a tv to play them on), board games, teenage mutant ninja turtle gear, and even an old nintendo game console! When's the last time you saw one of those?! The whole place is quite a nostalgic feast for the senses. And, it's like, totally tubular, dude!
And, the most awesome part - the food! The entire cafe and bar is organic and vegan. They serve classic comfort foods like burgers, hotdogs, wraps, bowls, soups, the famous Danish Smørrebrød open-faced sandwiches, and a varying selection of sweet vegan treats like cakes and cupcakes! So many yums! For extra fun, they even offer a daily special called 'the riddler'. Catch it while you can!
Of course I had to try the cheeseburger, aptly named the Family Guy Burger. It was a gigantic savory, chewy and scrumptiously crumbly burger patty with tasty, melty vegan cheese and all the classic burger toppings like ketchup, pickles, onions, lettuce and tomato, as well as their very own house-made mayonnaise, and the entire burger is garnished with fresh live sprouts on top. Score! The perfect explosion of flavors and textures. And, it is huge! Just try to get it all in your face. I dare you! I double dog dare you!
Wash it all down with a cold organic beer, a vegan milkshake, a vegan white russian, or try one of their creative specialty cocktails!
Go visit VIDEO VIDEO in Copenhagen's Christianshavn district at Dronningensgade 42. Dine in or out or get it to go.
