It’s still ramen weather here in Denmark, so when I met with my friend Peter and his girlfriend D for lunch the other day, we decided to go to Slurp, which is a small ramen place on Nansensgade, close to Torvehallerne in Copenhagen.
All three of us ended up ordering the shoyu ramen, which was a lovely bowl of clear, delicate chicken broth and came with a dollop of mushroom paste that added depth and richness to the flavor of the broth.
During the past decade, Copenhagen has really stepped up its ramen game, and I’m impressed by how well places like Slurp, has managed to stay true to the fundamentals, while adding their own, often Nordic touch, to the bowls.
Peter and D said that they really like Slurp, but that they rarely go, as there is almost always a long line outside. When we were there, we were lucky to get seated immediately, but while we were eating, people started queuing up outside. I regretted a bit that we got those window seats, as it’s difficult not to feel the pressure to eat a little faster, when there are people looking at you from the outside:)
