Amass restaurant is located near the water in a pretty industrial area of Copenhagen. As I mentioned, we walked for quite some time to find the place - meanwhile most people cycle or take a cab. It is owned (he is also the head chef) by American Matthew Orlando who used to work at Noma - a restaurant which has been voted the worlds best restaurant 4 times so obvs my expectations were high.Let's just jump right into it. We opted for a set lunch menu for 395DKK (£40), super reasonable for fine dining if you ask me. Interior on point. Wouldn't expect anything less! Our view behind us of the garden where they grow their own herbs and vegetables. Almond milk, radishes and salted plums. Let's just say it was interesting. The most beautiful fermented potato bread I have ever had. It came scorching hot with a fennel mix. I just ate the bread to be honest. Pork with a super grainy herb sauce. The steak had been cooked for 12(!) hours. Stunning. Rhubarb and raspberry crumble Muffins with blueberry jam Biscuits made from leftover coffee and caramel Private dining area.
If you feel like a newbie in the fine dining area I would highly recommend Amass. The staff are all dressed in jeans and are super personal, each waiter serves their dish explaining how it was made and we were regularly checked upon by various members of staff. The food was easy to understand and the vibe was just.. cool. The bill came up to about £100 with a drink each and let me tell you, that is value for money.
