Even though it was anticipated that Tabu would be the highlight of the trip – without intending to neglect Tabu – it turned out to be another restaurant that, based on my visit to Aalborg, earns the title of the city's best restaurant.

The kitchen reflects craftsmanship, where attention has been dedicated to a select few elements on the menu - but chosen to go all-in to make all aspects play together harmoniously.
