Qooqqut Nuan, Greenland

Qooqqut Nuan is one of Greenland's most unique restaurants, located in a deserted island settlement that's accessible by a one-hour boat ride from Greenland's capital of Nuuk. The kitchen practises a catch-and-eat philosophy - customers can fish in the fjords during their voyage to the restaurant, then hand the Arctic char to the team here for them to cook. The result is a fabulously fresh, surprisingly delicious meal, prepared with abundant heart and skill.

  1. That's one gorgeous pic, the fish on the hook. I wish I knew how to fillet fish but I guess one must have really very sharp knives to do that.

  2. You literally get the freshest of fish here...freshly caught off the waters and straight into your mouth! ;) Sashimi or ceviche is the best way to go, simply treated, you don't have to do much with such fresh produce. ^.^

    1. Contact.ewew: yeah, straight from the icy waters to the hot stove! they do have greenlandic salmon, but sashimi and ceviche don't seem to be part of the local traditional culinary culture - they do have smoked fish though! :D
