Salling ROOFTOP: All-you-can-eat moules-frites with Aalborg’s best view

by Shellie Boudreau

In just a few weeks, one of the largest events of the year will kick off in Aalborg.

We are referring to the event by Nordjysk Madfestival (food festival), which takes place all around Aalborg and throughout North Jutland.

The event kicks off on August 26 and runs to September 5 and includes more than 70 dining experiences. See the whole programme here.

One fantastic event takes place at a popular location with the city’s best view –of course, we are talking about Salling ROOFTOP.

The local company, Kystfisken, and ROOFTOP are arranging an event titled Limfjordens black gold. This black-gold event takes place Friday, September 3 and Saturday, September 4.

All-you-can-eat Moules Frites for under 300 kr

You have our attention when you say all-you-can-eat Moules Frites for under 300 kr per person.

Kystfisken delivers fresh seafood directly to the door of fish-loving Danes daily.

The common thread is the sun and fresh fjord water for the black-gold event, which means coastal fishing and locally grown ingredients.

The star of the show is organic line-caught mussels from Jegindø in the Limfjord.

The mussels grow under ideal sunlight and freshwater conditions below the water surface,

The mussels are steamed in white wine and served with rustic vinegar fries, grilled lemon and parsley, and dill mayo. Yum.

You can buy a ticket for Friday, September 3, 18:00-20:00.

Or Saturday, September 4, from 13:00 – 15:00.

If you cannot attend this particular event, you can try one of the many others that Nordjysk Madfestival is arranging over the two-week period.

However, there is a fight for tickets, especially since the summer holidays are over and people seek new experiences. So check them out soon.

To help you out, we handpicked a few events that we think sound really good.

Dinner in the dark

Saturday, August 28 at Duus Vinkælder.

After an introduction and welcome drink with the concept-creator Jens Kruhøffer, a delicious three-course menu in complete darkness. We can share one secret: the dinner is made from local ingredients and sustainability is worked into all three courses.

Other than that it’s a secret – the only way you can find out more about the menu is to try it.

Fun music, colourful drinks, and a place full of happy people – there are not many better ways to enjoy a Friday evening.
