“The classic Danish open sandwich (aka ‘smørrebrød’) has established itself as a staple of Denmark’s traditional lunch items,“ writes photographer and writer Jacob Termansen in the city guide Aux Villes du Monde under the headline “Smørrebrød Heritage”.
Go-to-places in Denmark’s Culinary Scene
“The famous Danish open sandwich is often found in small, unpretentious, (until recently) smoke-filled, dark basement-like establishments below street level. By remaining true to their heritage, these restaurants have become go-to places in Denmark’s culinary scene for all generations, from children to grandparents alike,” says Jacob Termansen.
Adding: “Culinary fads will come and go. Eventually we will tire of liquorice-flavoured rhubarb and fancy gimmicks of the sorts. But these traditional restaurants will stand strong, unchanged, and unnerved by the onslaught of changing times, thanks to their simple yet opulent, open sandwiches steeped in tradition and legend.”
