The Lighthouse

If you are into gastronomic experiences, a poor student or just someone who wants to try some new food from the rest of the world, then you've probably heard about street food. The phenomenon originates from abroad, where in the street picture you can see delicious food in the small street kitchens. Now it has long since come to Denmark, and now it has also hit North Jutland. The delicious street food dishes are available at The Lighthouse at Skudehavnen in Aalborg.  

The site opened in 2017 and is located in the old furniture factory with rustic rooms, which makes it extra pleasant to come. They have collected 17 different cuisines from all over the world, so even if you are just in Aalborg, you can taste dishes from eg. Morocco, Thailand and Japan.  

The street food the Lighthouse offers is very diverse. So if you are not into oriental food, you can get a good old fashioned sausage in the form of Keld's Organic Sausages. And if you can squeeze dessert down after a good meal, you can buy pancakes or ice cream.  

As a student in a study town like Aalborg, street food is only a plus, as it is very advantageous prices. The price of the dishes starts at DKK 50, so just go down with your friends and have a nice evening. The place is located at the harbor, so it is obvious to go for a walk at the harbor when you have had a good meal and have to stomach. If you would like to enjoy the good food, but would rather enjoy it at home, there is also the option of takeaway.  

On Fridays, The Lighthouse serves cheap beer, and Happy Hour with 2 drinks for 1 from 1 p.m. 20-22. So when summer hits Denmark, it's a good opportunity to go down with friends and get a break from the books.  

Aalborg Street food The Lighthouse also houses a lot of events. A football match will be shown where a good atmosphere is covered when AaB plays. If you have more to sit and enjoy, you can find the board games that are available.  

As summer shows its face, there are even more activities and many of them are outdoors. It's everything from the flea market to concerts to stock sales, so there's something for everyone. If you want to enjoy a good wok or falafel, you can do so while still looking for good flea finds.  

The Lighthouse in Aalborg is the place for the student who wants to enjoy good food with friends without spending too much money. Read more about the place on their Facebook and find the upcoming events.
