Copenhagen is one of the most expensive cities in the world, so living or traveling to Copenhagen may cost a lot of money. However, don’t let it stop you from visiting this beautiful Scandinavian city. Copenhagen can be a budget-friendly destination for foodies as well if you know where to eat in Copenhagen on a budget. In this article, I will show you the best cheap eats in Copenhagen.
1. Sunset Boulevard
If you want to find a cheap place to eat in Copenhagen, visit Sunset Boulevard. It’s my favorite place to have a nice fresh-made burger. You can find these shops near Round Tower (Købmagergade 43) or Fish Market (Københavns Hovedbanegård). If you enter the shop, you will see the price for one burger starts from 43 DKK, but you can ask for the cheapest option which is Snack Burger, and it’s only 15 DKK. I find Snack Burger and other burgers are not much different, so I usually go with Snack Burger! Not only so cheap, Snack burger is really tasty. The sauce of Snack Beef Burger reminds me the taste Vietnamese Banh Mi.
2. Takeaway Pizza
Takeaway pizza is also a good choice for cheap eats in Copenhagen. There are many pizza shops around Copenhagen, and the price usually starts from 60 DKK.
Where to eat the best pizza in Copenhagen? Pizzeria La Fiorita
I knew this delicious pizza restaurant from my friend, and this place has become my favorite pizza stop. It’s located just nearby the Lake, and not far from Central Copenhagen. The restaurant is small and cozy, so you can experience relaxing atmosphere while enjoying delicious slices of pizza.
With fresh topping and crispy dough, Pizzeria La Fiorita is a great place to eat authentic pizza at an affordable price. There are vegan pizza choices as well, along with other Italian dishes such as Bruschetta, Lasagna, Parmigiana Spaghetti bolognese, Fettuccine, Tortellini.
Location: Charlotte Ammundsens Plads 2, kld. Hjørnet af Nansensgade, 1359 Kbh. K.
There are various hot dog stands around Copenhagen, so don’t hesitate to try one! With an affordable price and amazing tastes, you can just pick one up for lunch. So, where to try hot dog in Copenhagen?
Location: Købmagergade 52, 1150 København K, Denmark
If you find yourself around Norreport Station area, just stop by and try delicious hot dogs from DØP. This hot dog stand is just nearby the Round Tower (Rundetaarn). The price starts at 35 DKK, and you can pay extra 5 DKK to upgrade your choice of sausage.
Here are some reviews of this hot dog stands from other customers:
b) John’s Hotdog Deli
Location: Bernstorffsgade 5, 1704 København V, Denmark
John’s Hotdog Deli is another option for people who are around Central Copenhagen. It’s located just outside Central Station and across Tivoli. The price is a bit cheaper than DØP, starting from 28 DKK. Some people say the hotdog here is better than DØP, but I will let you try it yourself 🙂
4. Too Good To Go App
This app is totally a life-saver!!! Instead of wasting the food, the restaurants cooperate with this app to let the user buy at a cheaper price in the evening. While using the app, you can see the distance from your location to the restaurants, and the what food they offer. My favorite choices are bakery shops and “All you can eat” restaurants. There are vegan restaurants for you as well! However, you can only go and pick your food at a specific time of the day, so make sure that you don’t miss it.
How to use the application Too Good to Go?
Firstly, you need to register as a user and choose the restaurant based on your interest. After purchasing the ticket, you must be at the restaurant at a proper time to receive your food. The restaurant will check your ticket, press a button, and then give you a small box to take whatever you want.
Therefore, if the picking-up time is 10 pm, I suggest to be there 9:55 in order not to be in a long queue or miss all the food. Your phone should have internet data as well in order to check your ticket.
5. Supermarket take-away food
There are few cheap supermarket chains in Copenhagen such as Netto, Fakta, Lidl, and Aldi. However, you will see Netto is the most popular one. It’s everywhere in Copenhagen and opens until late at night (10 pm or 11 pm, some even open 24 hours). I usually buy already-made salad boxes from Netto, and it is tasty. There are burgers, sandwiches, spaghetti and other takeaway dishes that you can choose from as well.
6. Famous fast food chains: Burger King, McDonald’s
Even though I’m not a fan of fast-food, it’s one of the cheapest options if you need a quick-and-cheap meal. There are some fast food chains in Copenhagen such as Burger King, McDonald’s, and the price starts from 20 DKK. I usually eat there after a late night, as they open 24 hours.
