Copenhagen Street Dog

The danish hot dog is not just another street meat. It is virtually the only street meat of Copenhagen, with the pølsevogn (hot dog wagon) being more ubiquitous in Denmark than Starbucks in NYC. Then again, is it really a hot dog? No, it is a pølse. It is an extra-long, juicy, red sausage that is beech wood smoked and has that original snap that makes American hot dogs jealous.

R/DK has recreated an all-natural version of the traditional danish hot dog, using old world danish sausage making techniques and classical scandinavian spices. This means all of the smoky, traditional flavor, but with no nitrates, hormones, or antibiotics, and only natural ingredients.

The pølse is also longer than an American hot dog, sticking out one inch of the bun on both sides, so that you can experience that juicy snap before getting the full hot dog experience. R/DK always serves their hot dogs pølsevogn style, meaning that they are topped with locally produced scandinavian pickles, crispy fried onions, chopped onions, danish remoulade, ketchup and mustard.

Available in NYC grocery stores Autumn 2014.

Red Sausage Event
Aamanns Copenhagen

October 20th 2013, 2pm - 6pm, at Aamanns-Copenhagen located in TriBeca in Manhattan (13 Laight St New York, NY)
New Nordic meets Danish Street Food! Anyone who has wandered the streets of Copenhagen has inevitably entered a pølsevogn (hot dog wagon), which are more ubiquitous in Denmark than Starbucks in NYC. Unlike any hot dog in America, the danish hot dog is a red, delicious, sausage with a snap, topped with condiments, crispy fried onions, and sweet scandinavian pickles. The Danish pop-up restaurant, Revolving Dansk, served these hot dogs pølsevogn-style for this one day event at Aamanns-Copenhagen in Tribeca, along with drink specials and a mix of europop and Scandinavian rock music.

Danish Day
Dassara

July 21st 2013
R/DK brought homestyle Danish cuisine into the neighborhood (Carroll Gardens) at Dassara. Sera Lavelle Høedholt and Danish-born Martin Høedholt paired with celebrity chef Pablo Ventura of Dassara and Fatty Crab, who has cooked for the likes of Tommy Hilfiger and Oscar de la Renta, to create a distinctively Danish menu for this event. The event focused on sharing the family recipe for Danish frikadeller (Meatballs), as well as renowned Copenhagen street food style pølser (hot dogs) created specially for this event. The event featured a variety of drink specials, a mix of europop and scandinavian rock music and R/DK’s own distinct flavor of fun. Thank you for joining us at Dassara! We had a great time and were happy to see so many smiling faces eating Danish comfort food.
