Hija de Sanchez

 

Copenhagen is filled with so many great, interesting restaurants and many of the chefs got their start at Noma, consistently the top restaurant in the world over the last decade. One of the chefs is Hija de Sanchez who owns and operates 2 taquerias in Copenhagen. I read a bit about her (and saw her on Somebody Feed Phil!) and her passion to bring Mexican cuisine to Europe and was excited to try her tacos!

The restaurant is very small with a limited menu, which changes daily. With only 3 to choose from, we wanted to try all of them and took the #2 menu, which included all three plus rice and beans. I had expected to like the fried chicken the most, but was surprised to have liked the cabbage taco the most! Super delicious and such a great price point. To finish, I couldn’t resist ordering the avocado popsicle!

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!
