Reviews / Restaurant

As a major European metropolis, Copenhagen is home to myriad international cuisines. In the up-and-coming neighborhood of Vestebro, boutique eateries have popped up everywhere, one of which is the Mexican hot spot Sanchez.


The industrial vibe inside Sanchez blends cozily with the laidback atmosphere, a smattering of tables and a handful of chairs that rest right in front of the kitchen, giving diners an up-close look at the chefs as they prepare each dish.


The authentic Mexican eatery only uses maiz criollo, organic corn imported directly from farmers in Mexico.


Start your meal with a shareable dish like cod empanadas, green ceviche with octopus or octopus tostadas. Larger dishes include Dirty Carnitas, or two small, open-faced tacos with pork confit. A drink-pairing menu is also available where the chef will prepare five unique drinks that match well with five small dishes on the menu.


As far as drinks are concerned, Sanchez serves multiple types of margaritas with either tequila or mezcal, as well as other cocktails and Mexican beers like Negra Modelo, Tecate and Pacifico.


Only open for dinner and weekend brunch, the prices here are about the same as any other hip restaurant in the city (i.e., on the expensive side), so save this meal as your final treat to yourself before leaving Copenhagen.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
