Enjoy gastronomical treats at home: Here’s where you can find gourmet takeaway in Aalborg

by Megan McPhee Christensen

We can’t be the only ones that miss visiting Aalborg’s many fantastic restaurants, which make light work of pampering the senses and creating the perfect cozy lunch date or fantastic dinner.

Until we’re allowed to meet and greet each other again in the city’s many dining destinations, we’ll have to settle for a little bite of the atmosphere and taste at home.

Many of the restaurants that usually serve fabulous dishes on their premises have (thankfully) chosen to conjure up appetizing takeaway treats that are far from greasy semi-cold pizzas or tired-looking burgers with soggy french fries.

We have put together a list of the restaurants making gourmet lockdown takeaway.

NB: None of the restaurants have paid to be in this guide and should we have forgotten a place, you are more than welcome to send an email to info@migogaalborg.dk or send a direct message to us on Facebook.

Bistro Dejavu and Applaus

Bistro Dejavu and Applaus have, under the name Bistrolux takeaway, put their focus on french classics and delicious specialties that you can enjoy at home.

You can order everything from fried oysters with tartar sauce and grilled lemon to the classic beef tartar, french toast, carpaccio, fried foie gras, and much more.

They recommend that you order two dishes and a serve of fries per person (three dishes if you’re really starving).

You just need to order before 16:00 on the day that you want to enjoy the food and pickup the food from Applaus.
