    • This was kinda like their pop up restaurant while the actual restaurant was under renovation
    • It was of that of a communal table - so kinda not fine dining
    • Food was quite plenty and I was actually quite full.

  • Cost: 1250 DKK (~200 USD)
  • Courses: Five Courses with Wine Pairing (though they will serve a couple of dishes)

  • Tostada
    • A bit weird for me since it has horse radish (but overall quite good.
    • Nachos could have been better if it was freshly prepared. Felt that it has been there for a bit but then again, this I think was the "free course"
  • Sourdough Bread with Norwegian Butter
    • From Richard Hart who was originally from Tartine's Bakery in San Francisco has joined the Noma team and now has a bakery outside of CPH city.
    • Being from San Francisco, I think the Walnut Sourdough bread is my favorite.. This was still good though.
  • Soup with Swedish Blueberries 
    • Warm Broth and a bit kinda weird
    • and was a bit weird with some blueberries

  • Tacos: Cabbage with flowers and Crispy Shrimps

  • Beef Cheeks with Salad and some Brussel Sprouts
    • Beef Cheeks with Lingon Berries - just melts in your mouth
    • Salad - mixed with some horse radish (would have been nice without it though)
    • Brussel sprouts - have some miso taste


  • Dessert 1: Seasalt Chocolate
    • It's OK.. Chocolate is normal but love the toasted sea salt thing.
  • Dessert 2: Pear Sorbet with Toasted Seaweed and Pear Verbena
    • Sorbet wasn't sweet but what was interesting was the toasted Seaweed
  • Coffee/ Tea and Cake
    • Prolly one of the highlights was the Almond Cake dusted with Raspberry Powder topped with Ants. Cake was feeling and a bit "citrusy" with raspberry and ants.

  • Bubbles from South of France (Chardonnay Grapes)
  • White from Georgia, It tasted like some sort of Bland Organic Cider
  • Red from  Tempranilla (7)

We hope your summer has been full of warmth and adventure. It’s been a little dreary here in Denmark, but we’ve managed to have our fair share of excitement.
A few months ago, while our crews and archeologists were working on the site that will house the new noma, we stumbled upon an ancient stone wall buried in the ground. These things are fairly common in a city that is over 900 years old, and in locations that are protected and heritage listed. After inspection, our partners at the listing authority gave us the all-clear to start work again. We are now on track to open early next year, and the extra time will give our team a great chance to continue to work on our new menus and fresh ideas.
So far, this summer we’ve been keeping ourselves busy working with our old friends and wine importers Rosforth & Rosforth “Under the Bridge”, hosting family-style dinners with a menu inspired by the team’s travels. Now, thanks to the delay, we’re happy to announce that we’re extending our run under the Knippelsbro Bridge by six more weeks.
In addition to the extended dates, we’ll also have some friends joining us to help create a new menu for October and November. Torsten Vildgaard, who worked at noma for 7 years, and was most recently the head chef of Studio, just re-joined the research and development team at noma last week. As a member of the noma family, he will also be working closely with the sous chefs Under the Bridge on our fall menu. Richard Hart, former head baker of Tartine Bakery in San Francisco, has just arrived in Copenhagen to open his own bakery. While he is planning for a space of his own, he’ll also be lending us a hand and making bread under the bridge. We are really excited to be able to work both Torsten and Richard during our pop-up.
Come and see us, if you can. Bookings for Under the Bridge can be made for October 4 – November 12, and are now available via our booking site. We’ll be open seven days a week and will offer a fixed menu for 1250 DKK that will consist of five dishes with a drinks menu included. Of course the weather in Copenhagen can be unreliable but don’t worry about that, it is covered and we have taken the necessary measures to ensure that our guests will be dry and warm.
We hope to see you soon!
