This week’s Copenhagener is the Swedish chef Daniel Campos Sánchez who is deeply rooted in the restaurant scene in Stockholm and Copenhagen. But besides working as a chef at one of the most delicious restaurants in the Swedish capital, he is also blogging about the food scene, about traveling and about the modern lifestyle. We are pleased that Daniel Campos Sánchez is our Copenhagener of the week:

LC: What are you working on at the moment?
DCS: I am a full-time chef (kock) at a soon to open Spanish tapas restaurant in Stockholm’s fanciest area. The restaurant is called “Spanjorskan”. Aside of that, I blog about food, travel and lifestyle mainly in Stockholm, Copenhagen and any city I travel to.

LC: Where do you live?
DCS: Stockholm, Sweden. Although I go to Copenhagen almost every month and I wish one day I can live there as well.

LC: Where in Copenhagen do you go for a walk?
DCS: The Lakes would be my number 1 option since I love the water and colored buildings. I also explore outer Nørrebro and always end up at Superkilen having coffee and taking lots of photos.

LC: Where do you drink coffee in Copenhagen?
DCS: Prolog coffee bar in Kødbyen is one of my favs. I also enjoy Ipsen & Co, Social, Pauseriet and, surprisingly and if I’m on the go, I go to Joe & the juice.

LC: Where do you eat dinner?
DCS: My all time favorite in Copenhagen is Amass Restaurant. The head chef and owner Matt Orlando is one of the most inspiring and talented chefs out there. And the staff is equally passionate about food and the dining experience overall. It’s always a superb experience. I also like Spuntino, Geist, Höst, Manfred’s, Cicchetti, among others.

LC: Where do you get inspired?
DCS: Pretty much anywhere to be honest. Chilling at Dronning Louises Bro with a cold beer, alone and listening to music is one of my favorite hobbies when I’m in town. Latin Quarter in the inner city is also a cool area full of life. The Christianshavn Kanaler are also a dreamy part of town. The colored buildings and the water itself make me happy beyond belief. It’s life itself.
As touristy as it may be, Nyhavn is also an iconic spot for me. It was the realization of acknowledging that you are in Copenhagen, and it’s just so so pretty! Anywhere in Nørrebro is also very interesting for me since one can feel and appreciate a true spirit of integration between Danes and foreigners.

LC: Where do you party?
DCS: I always and somehow start my nights with a cocktail at Balderdash Bar and then tour the bars of Gothersgade. After that and depending on my mood I either end up at Culture Box (awesome club for techno music lovers) or at the bars in the inner city where one can dance and drink all night long.

LC: Where is your favourite place in Copenhagen?
DCS: Tough question. I would have to say the Christianshavn canals.

LC: What is your favourite memory in Copenhagen?
DCS: Yet another tough question since I have so many. Being a foodie and all I would have to say that it was on February the 28th of the present year. Dinner at Amass on their reopening after the winter break. Magical food, impeccable service, fantastic wines and even a small tour of the kitchen. A day to remember forever!

LC: You recommendation to the best day in Copenhagen?
DCS: Breakfast at one of the places of my city guide:
Then chilling at Dronning Louises Bro and walking around the lakes taking photos and just enjoying life.
Then walking to Superkilen to have coffee and chill there.
Lunch at Copenhagen Street Food Market with a few drinks while enjoying the amazing view and vibes of the place.
Then head back to the inner city and have a few cocktails at Balderdash or Ruby Bar.
Dinner at one of the places I recommended and then, of course, end the night with a bang by going out.
Copenhagen is just too awesome!

LC: Even though Copenhagen is fantastic, what does it lack?
DCS: A fair transportation system, price-wise I mean. The prices are abusive and it seems that visitors are being taken advantage of because they have no other chance.
Biased comment or not, Copenhagen is missing a Peruvian food restaurant.
I would also like to see more cleanliness on the streets and from the people. Both visitors and locals throw trash on the streets and to me that is just unacceptable and impossible to understand.

LC: Your soundtrack in the city?
DCS: Avicii live at Pier 94, a 2 and a half hour set with the best of his repertoir, so so inspiring!

Thanks a lot for sharing your Copenhagen tips with us, Daniel.
