What is ferment?
At ferment we are inspired by the metropolitan cities around the world.
We started in 2015, when hardly no one knew what fermentation is, and the handmade noodle was almost non exciting here in Copenhagen.
We wanted to do a straight ramen restaurant but got excited by the possibilities in our neighborhood and just kept on evolving into what we are now, and who knows where this way of thinking will take us.
We are in the center of Copenhagen, near Strøget (the walking street) and city hall. The area is called friendly called “Pisserenden” or the Copenhagen Latin quarters. We love the area and the small community we have here with fellow shopkeepers and inhabitant alike. We could keep on telling you stories about these streets, so much happened during the years, and many books has been written about this special area.
If you think about soho in London, you are not that far off.
We are not an Asian restaurant, nor a Japanese or a Chinese. We are inspired by everything and nothing, we do the things we like to eat and drink. In other words, we do not follow any trends, or as Sir Paul Smith would say “you can find inspiration in everything!”
We do everything by hand, except miso, soy, and rice paper. We do this because this, because this is the way we were taught and not because it is the smart thing to do. No! it is the right thing to do.
We always have a lot of new ideas and things working, so please do ask us if you have the slightest question about the food. And please also tell us if you do not like it, or even better tell us when you do.
We constantly try and evolve and do something new, ceramics, new fermentations, new dishes,
new drinks and so on. In other words, ferment is; as fermentation is; a living place.
