To turn your attention away from the nauseating election results in the US of A, I am going to tantalize your taste buds with a nordic specialty by a country that has their shit together.
“According to the World Happiness Report, the Scandinavian nation that is Denmark has been rated the happiest country, and has been in the top 3 ever since the survey began. The combination of a long and healthy life expectancy, freedom to make your own choices and a noticeably higher level of generosity and trust than other countries, makes this fact about the colourful country, Denmark unsurprising. Not sure about you, but we’re thinking of packing up our things and eloping to Denmark immediately.” – MOKA Bros Team
So as we consider turning our backs on America for obvious reasons, the talented team at both Moka Bros and the Georg have made a very smart move to join forces to host this pop-up event featuring savoury smørrebrød aka Scandinavian open-faced sandwiches that taste as amazing as they look.
On a little side rant, I have never understood the point of having another piece of bread other than the fact that it makes a sandwich more take-away friendly. But that’s the point of an open-faced sandwich. Danes know how to enjoy their food and calling this a “type of sandwich” is already very misleading. A smørrebrød is not something you want to grab on the run. Trust me, this is worth sitting down and savoring.
Taking place this Friday on a very easy date and time to remember – November 11th starting at 11AM (11.11 @11AM) until they run out at their CBD branch at The Place Shopping Mall. All smørrebrøds are RMB 38 each so this is a pretty sweet deal not to be missed! Pair your smørrebrød with a beer by Midtfyns Beer House (RMB 45 per beer) and you’ll be set for the upcoming weekend.
The Danish Pop-Up at MOKA Bros (CBD branch at The Place)
Traditionally, this savoury Danish go-to classic is a step up from what I grew up eating in my lunch box at school. Rather than on sliced white or wheat bread, a smørrebrød is built on a foundation of buttered dark rye bread topped with quality cold cuts, slices of meat or fish, cheese or savoury spreads.
Knowing how the Georg does what they do, they’ve gone to town with this Danish Pop-Up with crafty smørrebrøds that will blow away your taste buds. Inspired by restaurant Palægade in Copenhagen, The Georg will be showcasing their new smørrebrød menu at this Danish Pop-Up to launch their very own brand-spanking new lunch menu. So if you aren’t around this Friday to make it to this event, you can still get your hands on these gorgeous smørrebrøds at the Georg during lunch hours starting this Saturday, November 12th.
