Last week my sister’s husband came to visit me and we went to the fanciest restaurant I’ve ever been to. It was called Restaurant Sletten, it’s owned by the same people who own Formel B, which has a Michelin star, and U Formel, which does not have a Michelin star but is very well known and highly regarded in Copenhagen. I think for this meal I’m just going to post pictures with a brief description, because I honestly have no idea how any of this would be prepared or how to describe it. However, I definitely ate some things I don’t usually order in restaurants and tried some totally new things that sound kind of gross when you really think about what they are but they’re delicious (I finally tried sweetbreads after being grossed out watching them on chopped, and then in awe when they’re finally prepared and look incredible). I’ll try to get around to posting a more thorough description of each dish and my impressions, but for now I’ve just been dying to get this meal posted!
Pre appetizer “snacks” a chicken chip (maybe the skin) with assorted toppings and some type of cabbage chip that tasted like seaweed, topped with what I believe was a mussel sauce and bacon.
Smoked salmon with marinated celery, cottage cheese, and crispy sesame.
Lemon sole with fennel and creamy mussel sauce.
Sweetbreads with caramelized onions and kale in a somewhat sweet brown sauce.
Lightly frozen yoghurt mousse with blood orange sorbet and marshmallows.
Signature dessert, a “sea buckthorn surprise” consisting of a sorbet of Scandinavian berries, surrounded by vanilla ice cream, with a beautiful meringue shell on the outside.
