15 Oct Review: Vegan Restaurant Malmö in Valencia, Spain
Valencia is the third biggest city in Spain and has many vegan-friendly restaurants.
The pioneers of the vegetarian/vegan restaurants in Valencia are without a doubt the Copenhagen group that has 3 restaurants under their wing; Copenhagen, Oslo, and Malmö.
As a vegan foodie, I had to start somewhere, and I choose to experience restaurant Malmö first!
Restaurant Malmö is a trendy vegetarian restaurant in the urban chic neighborhood Ruzafa in El Carmen. The area is very alive and before or after your meal you should definitely go to the next bar for a drink and some fun.
The black and light wooden interior is the perfect combination of sophistication and simplicity. Just what I like to see in veggie restaurants. A little bit more upscale and not so hippie.
The moment you walk in Malmö, you are received by very friendly staff that is during the whole visit very professional and helpful. I only have loving words to say about the staff. And a special shoutout to Arabela, our waitress she was so sweet!
The menu is big enough to have you think twice what to order and it’s most likely that you will order more dishes because you want to try everything. At least the menu had this effect on me.
Malmö has interesting menus that are affordable which is a very big plus in my eyes. You can order the ‘’Plato del dia’’ which is only 8 euros. Or you can order the menu of 3 entrees to share, 1 main and a dessert for 18 euros p.p 25 euro when you include a drink.
Even though the restaurant is called after Nordic cities the food is rather Valencia, Mediterranean or Asian. Some dishes definitely intrigue and are asking to be ordered; like the foie gras made from mushrooms and the vegan tuna made from soy and seaweed. That was very similar to real tuna but less fishy – it was surprisingly good.
I have ordered many different entrees and mains with my boyfriend over a couple glasses of delicious vegan red wine and rosé.
My favorite dish was by far the ‘’Sweet potato, courgette pesto and cashews over crunchy bread.’’ Although I must say that I have enjoyed all the dishes I have ordered. See the photos below!
I definitely recommend eating at Malmö and I will come back often. 🙂
