Vegan paradise, Silk Road pays homage to the multicultural cuisine offered to travelers on the legendary trading route connecting the far east and the western world. Their mission is to start a vegan revolution, showing us a whole new world of vegan delights. We had the pleasure of tasting a generous portion of Haitian sweet potato curry with a creamy, coconut sauce. A taste of heaven in a bowl for the budget-friendly price of 135 kr!
Next up we were seduced by Japanese gem Gohan and devoured one of the most satisfying meals we’ve had in god knows how long! Words can’t describe how delicious their Japanese pancake, Okonomiyaki tasted. A steal at 150 kr, this succulent combo of fried chicken and eggs was love at first bite!
Last but not least, today’s final tip is family-run Indian treat: Der Peppern Gror. With a passion for Indian street food culture, they focus on elevating homemade highlights from their childhood. We tested their samosas that had a satisfyingly crunchy texture and spicy flavor.
Priced at only 85 kr – a perfect bang for your buck style lunch!
