Grød is Danish for porridge and as I’m an absolute porridge obsessive, I had to visit whilst in Copenhagen.

When it opened in 2011 Grød was the world’s first porridge bar.

Their goal was to redefine porridge and make show stopping bowls full of delicious, delicate and versatile spins on porridge. I popped in to their Torvehallerne branch to see if their porridge passed my porridge obsession test. It did!

The setting

This branch is in the famous covered Torvehallerne food market – a stall market packed with sixty stalls selling a fab mix of produce from paleo to organic.

In terms of seating, there were three designated high tables with high stools, plus there’s also outdoor picnic benches to sit on.

The fresh juice test

Grød don’t do a green juice but do offer juices like a carrot, apple, ginger and lemon combo and a beetroot, apple and lemon juice. I tried their homemade ginger and lemon juice which was the perfect zingy pick me up!

The little things

Not only do they attract the breakfast obsessed, but Grød also cater for hungry mouths all day and night with their savoury menu.

It varies from congee to dahl and looks just as mouthwatering.

What we ate

We visited as a pre-flight morning fuel up so we tucked into their delicious all day breakfast range. With 7 different sweet bowls to choose from, we were spoiled for choice so opted for the ‘ALL IN! Porridge’, with all of the toppings and a ‘Make Your Own Bowl’ consisting of the Gluten Free 3 Grain Porridge with almond milk topped with cocoa nibs, roasted coconut flakes, banana, caramel sauce, roasted almonds & skyr yoghurt. I also had a warming oat milk latte.

What else

Grød now has four locations in Copenhagen and one in Denmark’s second largest city; Aarhus.

They have  also brought out a gorgeous porridge cook book and stocks their own granolas, grains, toppings & instant porridges which you can buy in store or online.

The bill

ALL IN! Porridge 75DKK
Make your own Porridge 60DKK
Oat milk Latte 40DKK
Ginger Lemonade 35DKK

What made you glow?

All of the heavenly toppings and absolutely the portion size!

You will definitely not be hungry after a bowl here (I couldn’t even finish mine… which is rare).
