We visited Nyhavn in Copenhagen, the area where Hans Christian Andersen lived for 18 years! Literally translated into “New Harbour”, it’s a lovely walk by the river with some very brightly coloured and cheery looking townhouses lined up and down the riverside. The weather was windy and wavered between warm and cold (depending if the wind was blowing and if you were standing in the sun or shade), but I really enjoyed the walk because the sights and sounds were so unique.
We decided to hop onto a canal cruise around Nyhavn. Turns out it was a fab idea, as the weather was simply brilliant! Cool and breezy, but really sunny with clear skies. Both kids had a really fab time bobbing along the water and checking out the sights. Yes, it’s a pretty touristy thing to do, but you just gotta do it!

We stumbled upon a restaurant that specialised in Danish herring. In fact, they offered a HERRING BUFFET!!! Goodness. I was beyond excited. It’s nothing like I’ve ever eaten before.. herring in a variety of ways that were all delicious. There’s something about Danish herring – it’s so incredibly silky and soft and unfishy that it’s like you’re not eating fish. It’s a shame it’s not popular in Singapore, because I’d love to have it again. And, as expected, we pretty much cleaned out their whole buffet of herring. I think, after we left, they put up a sign saying “No Singapore’s allowed near herring buffet” 😉
I was really disappointed we didn’t get a chance to go back to this restaurant to eat herring again. I LOVE the stuff. Does anyone know if there’s a restaurant in Singapore that offers authentic Danish herring?
