The Original Danish Fast Food


What do Korea, Japan, Peru, and Denmark have in common? They do not drink the same kind of beer, nor do they eat the same kind of delicacies. But one thing that makes these four countries related to each other is the availability of the street carts, which provide hungry tourists and locals, a fast and accessible place to quench that thirst and fill that hunger away. All carts present famous and recognized food selections such as Takoyaki (grilled octopus in dumpling) in a Yakai in Japan, Sundae (blood sausage) in a Pojangmacha in Korea, Anticuchos (Cut Stew Meat) in Peru, and the prominent Røde Pølser (Red Sausages) in a Pølsevogn in Denmark. These kinds of shops are a perfect escape for the hasty hungry tummy.

Aside from Røde Pølser, there are other sausage selections being offered, which includes Frankfurters, Hotdogs, and other sandwich meals. Do not be surprised however, if you are asked to have bread with your sausage as Denmark offers the bread differently, apart from what westerners think. Unless it is not a hotdog, the bread is served separately, which should be eaten before or after you eat the sausage. Mustard, ketchup, and sometimes remoulade are squirted separately for you to dip on before eating something. Even though the numbers of Pølsevogn is declining locally, due to competition with restaurants and convenience stores, there are many Pølsevogn available in other countries including Russia, Germany, Spain, Norway, and even as far as Singapore. Danish around the world feels at home when eating on these kinds of shops.
