Souls Restaurant Copenhagen: Vegan & Gluten Free Dining
Souls is a hip and trendy vegan restaurant with a modern spin on classic and international dishes. With two restaurants in Copenhagen and a newly opened pop up stall to extend the family, Souls has become a popular hangout for locals and visitors alike.
Souls vegan menu is designed with sustainability and heath in mind. Made with locally sourced healthy ingredients, the food here is a true delight for those who like to know what they’re putting into their bodies. And the mission doesn’t stop there – the team are so passionate about the future that they make every effort to consider sustainability in every aspect of the restaurant, from the packaging of foods to the interior design.
A modern and minimalist decor is combined with a warm candlelit glow to create a cosy and relaxing ambiance. The layout of the restaurant makes for a lively and sociable atmosphere, whilst the candlelight and corner tables offer a more romantic and intimate experience. Whether you’re on a first date or catching up with friends, Souls is the ideal place to go.
The only difficulty you might have is choosing what to order from the list of tempting options. With a little help from the Souls team we narrowed it down and could not have been happier with our choices.
Up first, grilled broccoli in goma sauce and sesame seeds, and tempura cauliflower served with chili, coriander and miso mayo. Both dishes were beautifully presented and the flavour combinations were perfect.
With a sip of wine to cleanse the palate, we moved on to the main event.
The Soul Burger is one of the restaurant’s most popular dishes, and it was easy to see why. A “Meat” patty is topped with caramelised onions, pesto, grilled zucchini, and a rosemary dressing to create a feast for the senses. Of course, we added all the extras – cheese and avocado on the burger, and sweet potato fries on the side. The dish was served with a nice little addition of fresh veggies and dip which really rounded off the meal.
On the other side of the table was Ramen. A miso broth with tofu, noodles, coriander, chili, lime, shitake mushrooms, and seasonal veggies. The dish looked phenomenal and tasted even better. A must try if you like Japanese cuisine.
Of course, no meal out is complete without dessert, and the menu had us wishing we could return every day that week to try them all. Luckily some of the choices allow you to sample a selection of the other menu items, like the aptly named ‘Death by Chocolate’. A medley of baked chocolate cake, raw chocolate cake, a chocolate bite, chocolate ice cream, fruit, and homemade chocolate syrup is presented in the most artistic of ways, it almost looked too good to eat (almost!). The combination of textures and flavours was impeccable – a true chocolate-lovers delight.
For those who prefer something fruity, the Super Berry dessert is a must. Acai, mixed berry cheesecake, seasonal fruit, and seasonal sorbet create a taste explosion that is as pleasing on the pallete as it is to the eye.
The team at Souls have created something truly special. They’ve taken a passion for sustainability, health, and the future, and turned it into an unforgettable culinary experience that will have even the most persistent of meat eaters considering a plant based diet. The creativity and flavours of each dish are a true feast for the senses that will keep you coming back for more. It’s no wonder Souls was voted as the Best Vegan Restaurant in Copenhagen in 2018 – add it to your bucketlist.
As the Souls team saying goes… Eat like you give a fork.
