Skankynavia: Nikolaos Strangas Cakeaway (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

My neighbourhood is changing rapidly these days– for the better. The whole block used to be really sad, shopping-wise. A nasty old bakery with day-old bread, Christian-sects’ offices, and three different Thai “massage” parlours (last year a war broke out between them, and the hookers smashed each other’s glass windows with bricks every night, what […]

Skankynavia: Foodshop No. 55 (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

Last night there was a big snow storm here in Copenhagen. At some point I looked out the window and saw huge lightning flashes across the horizon.

by Anders Arhoj

Fall has reached Copenhagen, the leaves are clogging the streets, days are getting shorter and darker and my sugar addiction has reached new levels. Some say the reason why supermarkets of Scandinavia are so crowded with candy and cakes, is because the constant darkness and cold forces our bodies to require more sugar to stay […]

Skankynavia: Tivoli Eating Aesthetics, Part 1: Munchin’ In The Dark (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

If you heard anything about Denmark you might have heard of Tivoli, a big entertainment garden planted directly onto the epicentre of Copenhagen. It was opened in 1843 and has since then been built out, refined, and in some ways demolished (but that’s a whole different story). I have been permanently in love with this […]

Packaging Whore: Agnes Cupcakes (CPH)

by Anders Arhoj

A cupcake is like generic sex. Looks like an ok fun party from the outside, but when you dig in, it’s dull, sticky and in the end it just makes you wanna throw up. Right now, you’re probably thinking “Oh no, not another cupcake post. Weren’t cupcakes something that belonged to the 2000’s?” And yes, […]
