AARHUS VEGAN FOOD GUIDE // you need to know these places for sure
Posted On 17. August 2019
Hello everybody! At this point, I think I have spent a fair amount of time in Aarhus and looked for enough vegan food to make a dedicated post to the vegan food option in Aarhus, Denmark. Of course, these are not all the options, but simply my favorites. Remember to check out the Happy Cow app whenever you’re traveling and looking for veg options, it a literal lifesaver (not sponsored, just excited).
Melone, Frederiks Allé 96: formerly known as Mikuna, this is one of my favorite spots in the city. They make killer burgers and everything is a 100% plant-based. I basically always get their vegan “chicken” patty and barbeque and chips. Especially their sauce is insane. Definitely a go-to place for a thoroughly solid burger. I mean, look at this happy face.
Mackies, Sankt Clemens Torv 9: An American diner-inspired restaurant which a selection of vegan options, which include a pizza, a wrap, and a burger. They make a vegan pizza with barbeque and banana which is worth checking out. Their vegan options do not involve a lot of substitute products but rather a lot of whole veg, which some prefer. I honestly find myself in the middle.
We Feat, Guldsmedegade 33/Frederiks Allé 102: If you are looking for good, solid, organic whole food this is definitely the place. They have a variety of nourishing salad bowls, a lot of which are vegan or can easily be made vegan by removing a few items.
Vaca, Mejlgade 17: I have previously LOVED their vegan burrito, but suddenly they changed the recipe, so the tortilla now contains milk, so so so disappointing. You can still get a vegan option though, their vegan ensalada is still trustworthy
Pita Planet, Ny Banegårdsgade 46: Not is 100% vegan place, but they have a homemade falafel pita which is greeeat. It’s spicy, has amazing dressing and hummus and generally, if you’re finding ourselves Aarhus Streetfood, then this is definitely worth a visit.
Plant Food Aarhus, Ny Banegårdsgade 46: Okay guys. Plant Food is also a stall at Aarhus Streetfood and it’s all vegan. They have homemade pasta and it’s absolutely delicious. One of my new favorite places. Jens and I got the pasta pesto and the pasta cashew. Edit: I just went back and they changed their pasta menu to a risotto and burger selection. Jens and I got their burger and they were literally some of the best burgers we have ever tried, definitely worth a visit!
Piccolina, Skolegyde 8: A pizza place in Aarhus that makes non-vegan food but has a rather large vegan menu as well. I’ve been there once and I was super surprised by the quality. I’ll definitely be back some other time.
Cafe Gaya, Vestergade 43: I haven’t actually been to Gaia, but it’s on my to-do list. Thye have a large vegan buffet and it looks absolutely amazing all of the time. The buffet looks like a lot of healthy and organic whole foods rather than a lot of soy. I found the café through Happy Cow and I made a promise to myself that I have to visit Gaia the next time I am in town. Edit: I recently visited Gaya for a snack, I got their cake of the day and a smoothie and it was all darn delicious.
