When we were given the keys to the sand and windblown powder house that frames our restaurant on Amager Strandvej, the building was listed. We have decorated our dining hall in a manner that respects and highlights our history, although we have added a colourful twist. Rustic planks are in place in the high-ceilinged room to support the rooms on the first floor. Under the raw timber are colourful lamps, pleated by women in Colombia and Chile from recycled plastic.
Rustic planks and pleated lamps
There is a total of six powder houses on the windswept coast of Amager. In 2016, Sticks’n’Sushi opened a restaurant in one of them.
The mostly bare house was erected in 1776 to store ammunition, and for many years, the beach road was used exclusively for military purposes. After the last shot had been fired, the house has been used as everything from a guardhouse to a surf shop—nowadays it is home to the aroma of grilled yakitori sticks that sneaks its way upwards.
The menu offers colourful salads, rice paper rolls, and a selection of cold and hot dishes. We even offer a selection of desserts, Japanese beers, and sake—and if you prefer something carbonated to go with your raw fish, rest assured we can make that happen. We also have a special menu for the young ones, so we can guarantee that nobody leaves us hungry.
The kitchen in the powder house is long and open, and it is possible to eat at the bar. The garden offers a pétanque court in the sand outside. You can play a game against your friends with a beer in hand and view of Øresund, windmills, and Sweden. What better way to wait for the dinner our chefs are preparing from scratch in the kitchen?
Larger group of guests
If you are twelve or more guests in your party, we kindly ask you to order your food in advance, as this will give our chef time to make sure that your food is absolutely perfect. Should there be guests in your party who would rather not eat raw fish, or who prefer plant-based diets. We welcome all requests for vegetarian meals.
