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.

It can be difficult to pack when the weather is unpredictable. Only so many things can be packed into a suitcase before it becomes too much. Frequent travelers know this is a problem. Even if the weather isn’t unpredictable in temperature, it can be unpredictable in the sense of not knowing whether a bad storm is coming or not. While it is challenging to pack for these types of trips, it is not impossible for travelers to pack the right objects and clothing for unpredictable weather.
Travelers are already savvy about keeping trash out of oceans and focused on our rising shorelines. But according to MarineSafe, sunscreen is one of the biggest and permanent polluters to our oceans. The common sunscreen ingredients oxybenzone and octinoxate are toxic to coral reefs and other marine life. The chemicals are shown to cause coral bleaching that ultimately leaves the coral vulnerable to infection and malnourished. Of course, sunscreen isn’t the only source of pollution in our oceans, but is quickly escalating into a crisis.
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.
Now more than ever, technology allows us to stay connected while we’re away. Gone are the days when you leave for a trip and have no access to home. There are numerous tools you can use to monitor your house while you’re on the road.
