Mostly a good experience

The staff were friendly and helpful when I (being sensitive to, among other things, onions) asked about the ingredients of the food. I was a bit disappointed by their limited menu, considering the large product range Astrid&Aporna has in stores. They asked me what I wanted on my sausage, but not my boyfriend (who got his covered in ketchup, one of the things he can't stand...) who also wasn't asked what he'd like to drink (while I managed to get tap water on request, as I prefer not to drink bottled water for the environments sake). A suggestion for improvement is to write on the menu what's served with each dish (like that ketchup and mustard is automatically added unless you say something) and to spare the environment by serving tap water to anyone. This really is a fast food place, so if it's bad weather I guess it would be cramped inside by the bar desk- kind tables. Sitting outside by the tables on the quiet street was nice, though.
I recommend the chef's own vegan mayo!

Pros: Staff knew the food's content, Good value, Chef's mayo
Cons: Unclear what's served with each dish, No nice seating inside, Normally doesn't serve tap water

Delicious burgers and fries

Posted on 07 / 14 / 2015

Nice and comfy old american diner style, with high tables and chairs. Friendly service and delicious food. I LOVE their burgers and fries(fries b4 guys), not a big hotdog lover, but my non-vegan brother and father have both eaten with me here and they liked the food, though they thought it was a bit pricey. I personally am fine with the prices, but do not absolutely love the location. But it is fairly close to the supermarket of the same brand, which makes the trip worth it. Definitely a must when in Copenhagen.

Pros: 100% Vegan, Tastes amazing
Cons: Location

This is the best Burger in Town!!!
Even if you are NON-veg. Trust me I got people with me who was non-veg and they where all totally blown away by this place!
As we say for fun, "You can't do epic shit with basic people" and this place is NOT just a basic burger bar in town- This place is epic!
This is also the best hotdog in the city if you ask my husband;)
In here you can get burgers, hotdogs, salat & owen baked fries on the site and mostly a months dish which last time was a damn fine "fooled-pork" wrap made with jackfruit meat.
If you are in town for a few days, please go to this place. The street where it is located is also a really lovely place to chill in!
Peace out & Rock'n'roll thumbs up from here!

Pros: Cool staff, Nice Vibe, good Value

Nice place

Posted on 06 / 13 / 2015

I was only for a few days in Copenhagen and this one was a great experience after some raw/vegan places that were a bit disappointing. I also like the face that it was more vegan based than healthy (like the raw/vagn places). There is a little charity box at the counter. I had the BBQ burger and really liked it! Also relaxed atmosphere and nice people. I was lucky there was only one other customer, so no waiting. My favorite vegan place in Copenhagen so far.

Pros: Nice food, Totally vegan, Relaxt atmosphere
Cons: A bit hard to find

Go here for the hotdogs

4
Posted on 04 / 26 / 2015

Kind of mixed feelings about this place. It's definitely a very laid-back feeling, sometimes the people working there are very chatty, other times they seem a little too busy talking privately with each other.

According to others, don't trust the opening times completely, but call beforehand and make sure they're open.

Now, ABOUT THE FOOD, personally I was disappointed with the burgers. They were dry, pretty bland, fairly small and overpriced. The fries are oilfree (?) and only served with ketchup, and I'm very much missing some kind of vegannaise option.

I do however love the hotdogs, esp. the hot chörizo with the sundays best relish. They are fairly priced at 29 DKK, one is great for a quick snack and two will leave me full, which seems like a better option than getting one small burger, that won't.

Don't go if your in a rush. If you're lucky you might get your food fast, but when I was there the last time, there happened to be 4 people in line in front of me, and I ended up having to wait for my two hotdogs for 45 minutes. Fortunately the guy was spinning good jams, so I didn't mind too much.

The wraps have been sold out on every occasion I have been there. Salads are good, but the spicy one was indeed spicy. Apparently there's a new menu on its way - hopefully they'll keep the hotdogs!

Pros: 100% vegan, Great hotdogs, Good take-away-option
Cons: Expensive burgers, Not that inventive, Fast food that are slow

100% vegan but it does not say so anywhere. No mention even about vegetarian. I find that interesting the meet eaters won't know. Nice takeaway spot. Seating for max 8-10 people inside, but more outside.

Pros: vegan

Excellent veggie burgers and soy dogs with delicious relishes. No indoor seating, though picnic table outside and park nearby. Staff incredibly friendly. One negative is that the restaurant is far away on the outskirts of town.

Pros: Veggie Burgers and Soy Dogs, Service
Cons: No Indoor Seating

Pretty Good

I like their burgers, especially after they got the non-wholewheat bun (which made the burger way too dry compared to the amount of sauce on it). They once had a DELICOUS side salad with seaweed, edamame beans and so on that I would crave, but now it's just a normal boring one.
I heard lots about their fooled pork wrap and was so excited, but both me and my boyfriend almost couldn't eat it because it tasted REALLY pickled, alot like vinegar, which we can't stand.
Also, all of the relishes have either coriander or jalapeños, which I can't stand either, and i consider it a pretty normal thing to dislike, so I don't understand why they won't get something else.
I had a "shrimp" wrap there once though, (while they had the delicious side salad) and that was like THE BEST thing I ever ate. Unfortunately, they won't get that back either..
So yeah, I rarely eat there at all now.

Pros: Pretty Okay Fast Food, Good Prices
Cons: Have Weird Ingredients nobody Likes, Removes ALL of the Good Stuff on The Menu

Super small place!

3
Posted on 01 / 21 / 2015

It's a super tiny place! The first time I was passing by I kept wondering on how tiny the place is. It's not a place where you can come with a bunch of friends to sit and enjoy the food, it's rather a good spot for tasty, not too pricy take-away vegan food. Good hotdogs, variety of sauces and burger options available.

Pros: Inexpensive, Tasty fast food
Cons: Really small place

Vegan fast food at Nørrebro

4
Posted on 01 / 07 / 2015

Astrid and Aporna serves vegan fast food like hot dogs, burgers, wraps, fries and side salads.

The small take-away restaurant (theres only limited seating) is located in the hip Jægersborggade. Plenty of shopping and dining options nearby.

Burgers and hot dogs are served with a choice of home made relish. I love that it is homemade (contrary to the bread).

The wraps and hotdogs are quite delicious. You get best value for money buying the hot dog. The wraps are small and should be considered a snack as it will not get you near full. More green filling, like salad and cucumber would suit the wraps. If you are satisfied with a small snack, the wraps do really taste exceptionally great.

The burgers are big, but the bread (wholegrain) is often a bit on the dry side and the amount of bread - compaired to filling - is to much. It is actually more like a sandwich than a burger. The bread has improved since the restaurant opened, but it is not quite there yet. I hope the management will consider trying some new (more burgerlike) bread types and maybe offer a regular burger bun with sesame seeds, so the customers have a choice. I prefer the the type of burger buns served at YoYo-foodworld in Berlin.

Fresh cucumber and tomato would really suit the burgers.

The fries are cooked in a special oven without oil. They are truly delicious and are served with ketchup.

Pros: Vegan, Friendly kitchen staff, Homemade relish
Cons: Burger buns need improvement, wraps and burgers need more filling

A vegan hot dog stand

5
Posted on 01 / 06 / 2015

Astrid och Aporna very much resembles an indoor hotdog stand. They primarily sell hotdogs and burgers, but also a few other fastfood options. For the type of foods they offer it certainly is high-quality tasty food. I recommend everyone to give it a try. However, like a hot dog stand, this restaurant is best suited for a afternoon snack and not a full meal, since eating a few burgers at this place quickly becomes expensive.

Pros: Tasty fastfood
Cons: Too expensive for a full meal

Boring meat substitute burgers

2
Posted on 01 / 05 / 2015

It's great to have a vegan burger joint in Copenhagen, and I hope that Astrid och Aporna expand their range of burgers as they get more established. I don't eat vegan substitute meat/cheese products, so I felt a bit sick when eating the processed burger as anything that resembles meat or cheese just grosses me out. It's a very small place, so your clothes smell a bit like frying oil if you eat inside. I would only ever go there again if they offered a more creative take on the veggie burger. More combinations with beans, rice, lentils and nuts please!

It is nice finally to have a vegan burger-bar in Copenhagen but dont get your expectations up. The burgers are quite average, doesnt get you full and pretty expensive. You pay around 60-70 kroner for a burger and they dont serve fries. I have heard that their wraps are supposed to be better value for the money but I havnt tried them mysef.

if you really, really crave a burger it is one of the few places to go, but even though I am a huge burger-fan I pretty much dont go there.

Pros: its vegan..
Cons: price

Pros: Love the hotdogs!, Great Location, Decent Price

The hotdogs are really good. The portions aren't that big, but it's cheap.
Not that many dishes to choose from but it's a great place and I eat there regularly :)

Awesome fast food

Posted on 09 / 25 / 2014

I have been here twice and have had the hot dog, burger and fries. The food is really delicious. I got a spicy hot dog with a spicy kind of relish. Messy but great. The burger also tastes great and has very nice texture.

It is a small place, not much room to sit and eat, with just a few seats at the counter and two picnic tables outside.

I highly recommend this place though, super tasty!

Pros: Vegan fast food, Delicious
Cons: Expensive for fast food in general

The place is a good choice to eat junk-vegan food (we were craving for it!). The smoked sausage hot-dog is a fantastic choice, and the sauces are good, too.
Everything tasty and fresh.

Pros: Price, Junk Food
Cons: Location

Cons: decor, greasy, portion size

High quality fastfood at affordable prices

5
Posted on 05 / 24 / 2014

"Astrid och Aporna" (Astrid and the Monkeys)is a health store in Sweden, specializing in vegan goodies, such as "cheese", soy hotdogs, patties, etc. As of recent, they've been expanding their franchise, the latest expansion being this burger joint in Jægersborggade.
The place is located in a half basement, and most seating is outside on benches, whereas tall chairs and counters is what the inside has to offer. The deco style can only be described as simplistic - the focus is on the food here.

There's currently 3 different types of food to chose from: hotdog, burger and wrap - either with salads on the side, if you'd like that (those are 20 dkk). The hotdogs are the cheapest, around 30 dkk, whereas burgers are 69 dkk - melted veg. cheese inclusive.

I had the burger. Good choice. Everything was homemade, and one of the staff told me everything is organic. Veg spicy pattie, mayo, tomato salsa, salads. It tasted delicious, and is so far one of the best vegan burgers i've ever bought from a regular store. I'm a tall guy, so i didn't get full (i never do), but i know most of you would be very satisfied with the amount.
The hotdogs (which was served many times) looked and smelled delicious, filled to the limit with all kinds of toppings.

The staff told me the menu will vary from time to time. As long as they keep this standard, i'm definately one of their new regulars.

Only big minus is the seating (which is going to be a problem during winter for sure) and the physical surroundings. It could use some color and a less polished look.

Pros: Very high quality, Fair prices, Friendly staff
Cons: Only fastfood, Polished interior design, Lack of good seating

Excellent hotdogs with extraordinary relish. As most takeout places small, but with limited outdoor seating in cosy Jægersborggade and very close to both Nørrebroparken and Assistens. A good experience, and I will definitely be a frequent guest!

Pros: taste, price, location
Cons: limited seating
