Danish word meaning greedy or hungry or...

I was at a restaurant in Jutland and decided to indulge in a big dessert because the tab was on my job. The waitress remarked to my co-workers something like "Hun er lille og dovn", but I know she didn't say "dovn", it was just a word that sounded like that. My co-workers responded to her something about me wanting a big dessert after my vegetarian meal. And when she left my co-workers said to me "Oh, don't take it personally." So now I'm curious about what she actually said. Is there a word that is one syllable and begins with D that is slightly derogatory and means greedy or hungry or something along those lines?
