La Neta

We were really curious to go out for tacos at La Neta. Antwerp doesn’t have a great selection of Mexican restaurants, so when we discovered a taquería with a high rating close by we wanted to try it out!

You’re unable to make a reservation, so expect to wait in line. Luckily it moves quickly so you don’t have to wait too long (plus it’s worth it!). We ordered a serving of chips and guacamole and two types of tacos: pastor (marinated pork with pineapple) and carnitas (pulled pork confit). Once you receive your food, there are many salsas to choose from along with chopped onion and cilantro. Yum!

Day Five was our second to last full day in Copenhagen, so we needed to narrow down what we would still like to do. We decided to start the morning with brunch at Kalaset. Koen and I had looked up a lot of restaurants for brunch and Kalaset was always high up on the list. The menu isn’t typically Danish – it’s very continental, so pancakes, eggs, bacon, etc. I guess I should have known that because it’s located in Indre By, there wouldn’t be many locals. Honestly, I think Koen was the only non-American in the packed restaurant and only one of two guys. It was literally filled with American girls doing brunch with friends. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing – I thought it was really funny. I just pretended to be Dutch and Koen and I had our own conversation while eavesdropping all the conversations around us. Who knew that studying abroad in Copenhagen is really great except for the lack of boys and is almost impossible to find a Danish boyfriend?
