My sister went to Denmark and I didn’t even get a souvenir Viking helmet! Perhaps I need to ask her to knit me one for Christmas. She did however, eat some sandwiches and bring me a vicarious lunch.
A few weeks ago in Aalborg, northern Denmark, my old friend Jesper and I met up with his daughter Zola at the centuries-old wine cellar Duus.
One beer later we headed down the street for lunch at Mette Vons’ sandwich shop, located in yet another ancient house. As it turned out, this was our lucky day: Mette Vons was running a two-for-one special.I decided to take a break from my eat-your-weight-in-cheese travel diet and chose something with chicken, avocado and veggies. I don’t remember what Jesper ordered, but model-thin Zola managed to down two huge sandwiches and then a brownie. Actually Zola, who’s still in school, does occasionally work as a model, in a lingerie shop that was visible through the eatery’s upstairs windows.
