You party animal!
You had a great time last night and now you are hangry for the perfect hangover foods.
Nuuk doesn’t have the classic fast food places like McDonald’s & Burger King, but fear not, we will guide you through the best options in Nuuk.
This small, round grill situated at the top of Aqqusinersuaq is a local favorite for its delicious greasy food. They have budget-friendly burgers, hot dogs, and hearty sandwiches which are available to eat in and/or take away. They even have a few slot machines that you can try while you wait for your order. Bonus, you can wait while doing a photoshoot of Centergrillen!
This Danish chain restaurant serves short-order burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes, and even chili cheese tops! You can dine in their diner-style booths or grab a paper bag and take your hangover food cure anywhere your heart desires. They are one of the few places that have self-serve soda, which is also a treat if you spend enough time in Nuuk. Bonus: they have a vegetarian selection too.
Located behind Aqqusinersuaq you’ll find the popular pizza place, ‘Iggu Pizza.’ If you like your pizza spicey, Margherita, or with the eternally divisive pineapple, Iggu Pizza is your place to go. They offer gluten and lactose-free pizzas for those of you with intolerances and allergies. Bonus: iggu is something Greenlanders say when something is really cute (it’s pronounced similarly to the Spanish word hijo). Iggu!
Bones restaurant is located in Nuuk Center. It is a lunch favorite for the meat lovers of Nuuk. They offer reindeer, musk ox, or beef steaks and limitless salads. Their ribs have also been highly praised. It’s super easy to find and it has a fun American-style interior design. Bonus: if your hangover demands your sweet tooth be satisfied, you can add limitless soft ice to your order. Yum!
There are plenty more places to eat your heart out, but these are our top choices for hangover foods in Nuuk. Remember to drink responsibly and stay hydrated!
