• Denim-clad waiters and one amazing meal

    I’ve had more than my fair share of Asian and European cuisine, but modern Nordic is something new to me.

    On a short layover in Copenhagen, I went to Amass.

    Owner and chef, Matt Orlando’s background is impressive, having worked in many Michelin-starred restaurants including The Fat Duck, Per Se and Noma.

    Yeah, I had high expectations but kept an open mind, and empty stomach.

    And I was totally blown away. The technics, combination of texture and flavors were intriguing, to say the least.

    Cod, burnt birch, radishes & black lime


    Clockwise from top left: Burnt broccoli, almond cep & dried beef heart; Grains, dried berries, mushroom oil; Graham cakes with apple jam; Sweet potatoes, hazelnut, chocolate & sea buckthorn.


    Carrots, pickled orpine flowers & sour curd;  


    Service is excellent, attentive and best of all, casual. I totally like that they kept things informal, with the waiters clad in denim. Think fine dining without the formality and pretense.

    Things I didn’t even know were edible are dished out and presented in what was truly an amazing meal.

    This is one place I would go back again in a heartbeat.

    I had the 9-course extended menu (DKK795 excluding drinks).

    Amass is out of the way from city centre, but with some planning, it’s easy to get to.

    Taxi is recommended, or you can take bus no. 37 which runs hourly and stops right outside Amass.
