Instagram is where I post most nowadays, but I will try to catch up with the most memorable meals here as well. This was my lunch at Noma back on June 24th 2016 and by the far one of the most interesting this year. My first time at Noma was in 2009 when “New Nordic” cuisine trend was just starting. I still remember “radishes and turnips in soil” dish, which was nothing I’ve had before or seen at any other fine dining restaurant.
Noma has traveled far since then. Not only geographically with its pop-ups in Tokyo and Sydney, but, most of all technically. I guess it can still adhere to “local and seasonal” philosophy, but it’s the techniques used and work put in every dish that blew my mind this time.
Since June, I’ve revisited Copenhagen once more and had a chance to dine at Noma’s new, casual sister restaurant 108. I didn’t love everything at 108, but I think it has a lot of potential and I it should be definitely under the radar for anyone dining in Copenhagen.
