We took the 9A bus from the city centre in the direction of the Opera house. After five minutes of walking from Prinsessegade the bus stop, we arrived at Papirøren, or Paper Island, an old warehouse that used to store paper for the association of Danish print media. A section of the warehouse has now been transformed into a huge dining area stacked full of food trucks, food cargo and small food venders gathering together during the weekend and offering cheap and various foods.
Apart from the food, there are always events and activities going on. There was a live concert on the day we went. We really enjoyed the evening with the food and music over there.
Visiting this place made me realise that the concept of food trucks has finally come to Copenhagen. It is a great business opportunity for food entrepreneurs here. Also, Danish customers are very sensitive in terms of price. So the model of food trucks makes perfect sense since food trucks offer cheaper prices than your local take-away place while at the same time being readily accessible for customers. As a customer, I would love to see more of these food trucks in Copenhagen. Especially, Thai food trucks! Why? Because I, and many Danes, too, love Thai food 😉
