If you ask Poul what he misses the most about Copenhagen, (except from me) the answer would be our favorite restaurant Les Trois Cochons. Since my sister Trine and Poul have a lot in common, when it comes to food (they’re both true omnivores), I therefore wanted to take her there, before she left for Århus again, so yesterday at 8pm, we stepped inside the cozy French bistro.
Like many of Cofoco’s restaurants, Les Trois Cochons also has a fixed price menu. Everything is served in small pots, pans and jars, and the starter and dessert often consists of several small dishes.
Trine was wildly enthusiastic about the concept and I’m quite sure that Les Trois Cochons is a contributing factor to her recent thoughts about moving to Copenhagen permanently.
As you may have noticed, to me good service is an essential part of a good dining experience. Food just tastes better when it’s served with a smile and a funny remark, and my favorite restaurants are therefore the ones where I feel welcome, appreciated and relaxed. Through the years I have eaten more than 20 times at Les Trois Cochons, and I haven’t had a single bad experience there.
PS: One of the waiters working yesterday really had some true actor/storyteller talent. He presented the entrecote with so much empathy and passion I almost regret that I didn’t start applauding.
