Festival food porn: Check out our dishes for Roskilde 2016

Last week we presented the team for our forthcoming culinary adventure at northern Europe’s largest music festival; a team made up of employees from all of Madklubben’s restaurants in Copenhagen. Now we’re also proud to show you exactly what they will be creating serving to the hungry festival goers.

Steak ’n’ Béarnaise Sandwich – DKK 65

At several of our restaurants the classic steak béarnaise is king. So naturally there was no doubt that the combination of tender beef and creamy béarnaise had to be turned into a festival favorite. Get ready for a toasted brioche bun filled with organic Danish beef, warm béarnaise, romaine lettuce, tomatoes and onion. The perfect dish for your hangovers!

Pearl barley risotto with summer veggies – DKK 35/55

Whether you live a full on vegetarian lifestyle or simply want to cut back on your meat consumption in order to help the environment our summer risotto will keep you asking for more. A creamy mixture of pearl barley, parmesan and Danish ”hay cheese” accompanied by broccoli, asparagus, carrots and radishes. Just a little bit hungry? Then go for half a portion for DKK 35. Otherwise go all in with a full portion for DKK 55.

Buttermilk ”koldskål” with an elderflower twist – DKK 30

In the Food Court area, where we are located, you are only allowed to make two different dishes plus a little side dish if you just can’t help it. And of course we can’t, so we made something to serve on those warm summer days, for breakfast or for dessert: A classic ”koldskål” made from chilled and organic buttermilk mixed with a note of blooming elderflowers. Don’t forget to top the delicious milk ”soup” with our homemade granola with freeze dried raspberries.

Guide: Combine your dinner with a traditional Midsummer’s Eve bonfire

Guide: Combine your dinner with a traditional Midsummer’s Eve bonfire

Thursday the 23rd of June marks Midsummer’s Eve in Denmark and according to tradition people of all ages will flock to large bonfires and sing songs with their friends and family. Don’t miss out on this thoroughly Danish tradition: Check out our guide to where you can find a bonfire near every single one of Madklubben’s restaurants and bars.

City Centre:

Whether you’re going for classic dishes at Bistro Royal, modern cooking with French and Nordic roots at Madklubben Bistro-de-Luxe or rustic Italian fare at Tony’s the most impressive bonfire will take place at historic Nyhavn. The fire is lit at 10 pm and will be floating on a pram in the middle of the harbour.

If you’re on the lookout for delicious steaks, then head to newly refurbished Madklubben Steak in Pilestræde or elegant Steak Royal by City Hall. After dinner take a 5-10 minute stroll to the lush Ørsted Park right by Nørreport Station. Here you will find another floating fire in the middle of the lake starting at 10 pm.

Steak Royal is also located close to renowned amusement park Tivoli Gardens in the beginning of the Vesterbro neighborhood. Here the bonfire will start at 9:30 pm but remember that you have to pay an entry fee to the park.

Vesterbro:

Sit down for dinner at our vast urban eatery Madklubben Vesterbro located in the heart of the vibrant city district. Being one of the densest urban environments in Copenhagen you have to walk a bit in order to find the open and inviting Enghaveparken. Here they have no less than two different fires on the programme: One for the kids starting at 6 pm and a big one for the grownups beginning at 9 pm.

Nørrebro:

Come visit one of our three restaurants right on the bank of the manmade lakes separating the city centre from the bustling and multi-ethnic district of Nørrebro. Alabama Social serves up American soul food, while Hanzō dishes the delights on the Pan Asian Kitchen and Gran Torino prepares and Italian feast for all budgets.

Once you’ve downed your dinner walk no further than to the waterfront where two different bonfires will take place: One at Kaffesalonen near Dronning Louises Bridge starting at 10 pm and another at Sølund Care Center and Fredensbro kicking off already at 8:45 pm.

If you get thirsty from all the smoke and flames our popular cocktail pusher in Nørrebro, Bar Next Door, will be open until midnight. We wish you and you loved ones a wonderful Midsummer’s Eve and look forward to welcoming you at one of Madklubben’s restaurants.

Meet the team heading to Roskilde Festival

Meet the team heading to Roskilde Festival

 

With only a few people absent, yesterday afternoon marked the first gathering of our team for the forthcoming Roskilde Festival. For the first time ever Madklubben will venture to Northern Europe’s largest music festival which takes place in the city of Roskilde south of Copenhagen from June 25th through July 2nd. 90.000 guests and more than 30.000 volunteers will travel to the festival marking its 44th anniversary.

We will be serving up big taste for small bucks in the ”Food Court” area which is a nickname for 17 different food stalls gathered in a converted cow stable. It’s located right by the Gloria stage in between the festival’s two largest stages: Orange and Arena. The final dishes won’t be revealed until next week but we can tell you this much: They will be tempting and greasy in just the right way and feature up to 90% organic ingredients.

To lift the task of bringing Madklubben to Roskilde Festival we’ve put together a stellar team from all of Madklubben’s restaurants in Copenhagen. It’s a mix of head chefs, restaurant managers, sous chefs, waiters, cooks and students with a common goal of creating and serving great and honest food to the people. Naturally we’ve also ensured that they know how to dance, tan and chug a few beers – it is Roskilde Festival after all!

We can’t wait to pitch our tents and get our very first Roskilde adventure up and running. If you’re going to the festival this year then make sure to stop by and say hi at the Food Court located right by the Gloria Stage and the Art Zone. We open on Wednesday the 29th of June and wont say goodbye until the music dies out in the early hours between July 2nd and 3rd.

American app with 60m+ users loves Madklubben Vesterbro

With a ranking as the second best restaurant in Copenhagen for larger groups and a fourth place on the list of the best places to go for a steak dinner we are stunned with pride at Madklubben Vesterbro. The American app and city guide giant Foursquare invented the ”check in” function and ever since then their more than 60 million registred users have been busy visiting and rating great spots around the globe.

In Foursquare’s two brand new guides to the Danish capital they highlight a selection of comments from the users and we couldn’t help but blush a bit when we read them earlier today. A Jiser Glitch from Mexico writes: ”From the starter to the dessert is just amazing. Colorado steak roooocks!! The most friendly crew ever .. Just love it.” And Murat from Copenhagen shares his experience of dining with a large group of guests: ”Great location, with delicious food, friendly staff and affordable prices. Wine menu is good, great for groups.”

We’re super proud to be a part of two of Foursquare’s guides to the best Copenhagen has to offer. If reading the article above has left you feeling hungry why not explore the full menu at Madklubben Vesterbro. Looking for a venue for your next dinner party or company event?
