First, let me give you the most important details,
428 Little Bourke Street, Melbourne VIC 3000
Now that I have informed you where they are, let me tell you a little about them. Denmark House is a small place in the middle of Melbourne’s busy city, offering the ultimate experience of Danish hospitality. I was there by pure chance of having a wonderful foodie friend, but when we went there on the last time the restaurant’s served their dégustation menus to the public. They will be serving dinner as per usual, a la carte instead. Let me show you the five-course meals experienced I had at the Denmark House,
Crispy Chicken with Danish remoulade
Nordic crisp bread with seeds and creme fraiche
Croquette of salted cod with ‘mormor’ salad and herbs
Smoked duck breast with pickled plum
Sous vide lamb rump with new season carrots, charred spring onions and rosemary sauce
Large whole king prawns with asparagus, hollandaise sauce and cracked pepper
Rye bread ice cream with brown butter
Compressed strawberries with cream and crushed meringue
Marzipan lollipop with chocolate
Each dish serves are flavourful and a delight. Personally, not the biggest fan of Nordic crisp bread, but the sous vide lamb… got me thinking, I should get myself a sous vide machines or something. The service was brilliant with ever so friendly and knowledgable waitresses. Aside from the flavours, the experience overall was nothing short of Scandinavian coziness.
I hoped you all get a chance to have a little taste of “hygge” Danish style at the Denmark House when you visit Melbourne. If you’re Melbournian and a foodie, please take a chance to pay a visit. You will not be disappointed.
