Logistics for the world’s most remote restaurant
We got to focus on delivering fine dining experiences without too many logistic concerns
Poul Andrias Ziska, Executive chef at 2 Michelin star restaurant KOKS
In Ilimanaq, a small isolated Greenlandic village with just 45 inhabitants, Michelin chef Poul Andrias Ziska opened a fine-dining restaurant on the Ilulissat Icefjord, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in 2022. For an evening at the world’s most remote restaurant, you take the boat from Ilulissat and, depending on the weather and the calving ice, arrive at restaurant KOKS in roughly 50 minutes.
Located on the coast, the restaurant overlooks the ocean with icebergs drifting by and the possibility of spotting whales between courses. The restaurant's remote location makes it a unique experience, but this location also brings the challenge of getting fresh ingredients and other supplies to the restaurant on time. That is where Blue Water came to help.
“Through local recommendations here in Greenland, we learnt about Blue Water’s experience and established reputation in handling logistics in remote locations,” says Poul Andrias Ziska on why he decided to work with Blue Water to supply his restaurant.
