I have had coffees in the morning in at Mother and never been around Kødbyen at lunchtime to try their acclaimed pizza until last week. My son and I were at an event at Oksehallen and decided to have our lunch in Mother. It was one of the last warm sunny days in September and we sat outside on the rows of benches, along with other diners soaking up the last rays. The menu isn’t vast, which I like, as it can mean that they do a few things well rather than a lot of things just OK. There are also three daily specials – one meat, one vegetarian and one salad.Unusually for me I chose a sausage pizza, to which the Welsh waitress commended me on my choice. Apparently the sausage is made by the chef and it didn’t disappoint. They offer smaller pizza for children, which are half the price but not half the size. Unfortunately my son tucked into his too quickly for me to get a shot but the juicy and delicious prosciutto soon disappeared, as did the lovely crispy base.
Normally I can be a bit disappointed by places that everyone raves about but I must say Mother make some of the best pizzas I have tasted in a while and we will definitely be back for more.
