Directions to Etika
Located in central Copenhagen on Ny Ostergade, Etika is a super trendy Japanese fusion restaurant helmed by restaurateur Jens Rahbek (previously of Sticks 'n' Sushi and Ebisu.) The philosophy is to offer simple, culinary minimalism with an emphasis on precious and pure ingredients. Etika is Japanese cuisine with Nordic ingredients.
Amazingly for such a quality culinary experience, the price is not too high. The average price for two pieces of sushi is DKK 50, sashimi (raw fish) DKK 110, and the more substantial signature dishing averaging around DKK 90.
Most of the ingredients come from Scandinavia. Much of the fish is caught around the Faroe Islands, where the quality is very high. The cold water allows for bigger fish and a fresher taste. The cod and rainbow trout in particular are sweeter and more succulent.
An example of the convergence between Japanese and Nordic cuisine is the North Atlantic halibut nigiri, or the calve's liver doused in teriyaki sauce. Rahbek is particularly proud of his Black Cod in White Miso, a specialty prepared with the freshest fish from the Faroe Islands.
The inside of Etika is a strange mix of graffiti and elegant simplicity that somehow works. There are plenty of seats and tables spread out evenly so that you can relax during your meal. In true Japanese style, staff will greet you with a yell of 'Irrashai!' (Welcome). Enjoy the small dishes like the Japanese, too, by ordering a large number and trying all kinds of flavors.
Etika has received glowing reviews since its opening and is well worth a visit for diners in Copenhagen looking for affordable quality, and fresh ingredients wrapped in Japanese sensibilities.
