The taste of Løkken
In Løkken, many restaurants are supporting the local environment by including qualitative and seasonal ingredients and products from farmers, butchers, fisheries and dairies nearby. For instance, there is an association of some restaurants and food artisans who are passionate about developing locally based culinary experiences.
Thus, surfer and other people on the beach are being served from small food trucks which offer fish and sea food specialities. The fish cakes are prepared in a local youth centre and the cod is caught by the neighbors on the beach, namely the fishers from local fishing cutters.
The catch of the day and other local products can also be tasted at the gastronomy at the city's square. A former boat shop and a café with space in the sun are among the favorite places to, for example, get served traditional dishes with both Danish and French touches in a historical setting. It is a meeting place for both tourists and locals and it is open from early in the morning to late aften. You can enjoy a dish with shelled prawns and a dark beer from the local brewery.
The beers are brewed close to the square according to their own recipes and the very old craftsmanship. The master brewer is part of the process, from selecting the best malt and hops to mashing, herbal cooking, fermenting, brewing and bottling. You can taste their selection and if you sit there long enough, chances are high to learn the specialities of the beers.
In Løkken it is easy to satisfy the desire for something sweet with the well-known, colorful candy. Throughout the entire year you can observe closely how the handmade candy is produced. The candy is boiled under an open fire and the candy mass is pulled on a hook to make the sweets more airy and porous. You can also try Italian ice cream which is freshly produced every day with ecological fruits and - if it is possible - with local ingredients such as raw milk from the local dairy. The flavors differ depending on the season and if you are lucky, you can get rhubarb, apple, strawberry, rose hip, elderflower, hazelnut, mint or rum and raisins.
