DØP Sausage Cart – Copenhagen, Denmark

I have no idea where we read about this place. Talk about a random – but very good find.

DØP is an acronym for ‘Den Økologiske Pølsemand’ – i.e. ‘the organic sausage man’ – and while every city has its street food, and Denmark’s seems to be dyed-red hotdogs, you’ll be getting a special treat at the DØP cart. I didn’t read up on the certification of this place, but they bill themselves as being organic, and that’s good enough for me.

The sausage/bun combo is delicious. The bun is whole wheat – you can see the flax seeds in the picture above, and the hot dog (with everything) comes topped with mustard, ketchup, mayonnaise, fried onions, fresh onions, and pickles. I don’t even like pickles, but I liked these pickles. The sausage is tasty – hot dogs are usually never that tasty – but this one is indeed good. And the total effect of the whole wheat bun, organic dog, and great toppings is a street food that just works.

Finding the place is a bit tricky though. First, head to the ‘rundetaarn’ – i.e. ’round tower’ in the pedestrian mall area downtown – and on the southeast corner, you’ll find DØP – hopefully open, ready, and waiting to serve you a delicious dog.

    That looks really good!
    I have never been to Denmark, but plan to next time I’m in Europe.

    Beer Brats may be selling their organic sausages on Vancouver’s streets soon. Currently they are available at the farmers markets.
