Mielcke & Hurtigkarl Copenhagen Reviews
Mielcke & Hurtigkarl May 09, 2013
Mielcke & Hurtigkarl Restaurant located inside Frederiksberg garden with beautiful view toward the garden. The restaurant is quite spacious and airy with birds’ song through the speakers and the wall painted with green trees and plenty of green leaves and beautiful chandelier at the ceiling. It has medium size indoor seating area; with eight tables spread out away from each other when we are having dinner there and outdoor seating facing the garden and several ducks and peacock wonder in the lawn.
The concept of the restaurant is to share their stories and emotions and like in fairytales, we don’t know what to expect of the food as the restaurant does not have a menu except the 2 choices of the full experience which consist of seven menus or an experience consist of five menus. They also use the season, raw materials and organic vegetables available at that time for the food preparation and presentation.
When we arrive in the restaurant, the waitress is friendly and usher us to our seat after taking our jacket off and store it for us. She gives us water straight away with choice of still or sparkling. Then we have choice to have a pre-drink before dinner and we choose to have champagne for this. The champagne was okay and it’s a nice opening appetite before dinner.
After we choose to have a full experience menu and explain if there is any allergy or if we don’t eat any type of meat, the ten snacks arrive with the chef explain each of it.
It is really interesting, the snack is mixed between western and Asian food and taste was good. We really enjoy it and it was a good start before dinner.
The first course is Langustine with oystercreme and wild herbs, accompany with 2012 Coteaux d Aix en Provence, Pomponette Rose wine and also apple and ginger juice. The taste and presentation of the food was good, except that similar with this kind of other restaurant, we couldn’t really see much of the Langustine, it was only one or two very tinny slices of Langustine, however there is plenty of vegetables and flower on the plate.
Second course is Halibut accompany with 2010 pfalz Wachenheimer Gerumpel Riesling wine and ginger tea and lemon juice. I really like this course as the fish has the right texture, taste just right with the right smell of the smoke and salty quail egg and dill sauce. Thumb up for this course.
Third course is Leek with seaweed and sheep crème accompany with 2010 Meursault Les grands Charrons Phillipe bouzereau wine and Beetroot and Ribena juice. I am not sure if I like this course, but taste was okay, probably not one of my favorite foods anyway.
Fourth course is sweetbread with spinach, peas and burnt garlic accompany with 2004 champagne, R&L Legras Cuvee Presidence and carrot juice. The meat was really tender and tasty. Unfortunately I am too fussy and I think, there is a very distinct smell of the meat or herb which makes me stop savoring the whole meal, but I am happy to have a bite of this.
Fifth course is lobster and monk fish with raw cabbage and dill sauce and some kind of puree sauce which I am not sure about. This accompany with 2007 Barolo Cascina Fontana wine and rhubarb and ribena juice. The lobster and fish is define, another thumb up for this.
Dessert consist of Skyr ice cream with dill, oat and cucumber, accompany with 2011 Rheingau Riesling Auslese Georg Breuer sweet wine and grass and lemon juice. The dessert is really refreshing and very nice.
The last dessert consist of pistachio span cake with citrus ice cream and sweet and sour crème accompany with 2007 Coeaux du Layon, Clos Saint Catherine, Domaine des Baumard and green tea juice.
Overall experience in this restaurant is quite enchanting and the food is very filling and presentation is good. Very happy with this place.
