At Saltimporten Canteen, everything is stripped down to the bare essentials. The no-frills venue features long, simple wood benches and tables, and the kitchen presents one set menu, plus a vegetarian option. But far from being a weakness, simplicity is Saltimporten Canteen’s winning point. This is the place to go for a tranquil lunch, and to taste interesting and unexpected dishes. These are frequently transformed or replaced altogether, and prepared with fresh produce from local suppliers. The delicious bread and light beer that accompany the food are also worthy of note. Saltimporten Canteen is found at the far end of Malmö’s port, a striking location from which memorable panoramic views of the city can be enjoyed.

Visiting Malmö’s Bloom in the Park is a surprise every time. The talented chefs Titti Qvarnström and André Schink have embraced a no-menu philosophy, which consists in deciding on new dishes daily, based on the available ingredients and their here-and-now mood. The kitchen’s overall approach, however, leans towards an experimental and unpredictable deconstruction of classic French cuisine. The venue is characterized by a modern, sleek interpretation of elegant interior design. The interlocking white panels that cover the wall stand out as the most unique feature: an original setting that matches the eclectic food. Bloom in the Park also offers a take-away service and a tearoom to enjoy a relaxing break during the day.
