Solvang Restaurant

Solvang
$$$$

Located in the heart of downtown on Copenhagen Drive, Solvang Restaurant specializes in (you’d never guess) Danish cuisine. The tourist-heavy spot is known for its aebleskiver, a traditional Danish Christmas delicacy likened to pancake balls and served with jam and powdered sugar. Solvang makes thousands of the donut hole-like sweets a day, and unlike Danish tradition, sells them year-round. They're best enjoyed alongside medisterpolse, a mild Danish sausage (seriously).
