Looking for raw lunch in Malmö? Tangopalatset now serves raw food! And their brand new opening for RawFoodLove, as it is called, was yesterday July 2nd. And I was there!
The couple behind this venture, Betty and Perica, are experienced when it comes to raw food. They were the former owners of the first raw food (and totally organic) café in Malmö (actually all of Sweden), called Café Stunden.
Betty and Perica “share” this place with Tangopalatset and run the weekday lunches (as of now).
Raw food or vegan cooked
You can choose between a raw food plate and a vegan one. The raw food lunch special changes daily and comes with a salad. The vegan version is cooked but is gluten, dairy and sugar free. “Many people ask for warmer food especially during winter time, but they still want a healthy version” explains Perica. Today the vegan dish to be had was Quinoa Salad.
Burger with cole slaw
The raw food special, Sunflower Burger, was what I (naturally) opted for. And here is my verdict:
The Sunflower Burger, very tasty, was served between two slices of sesame bread, with tomato, onion, lettuce, and topped with yummy raw dressings – both mustard and ketchup.
The side salad, also a generous portion, was Piquant Cole Slaw tossed in a red creamy dressing; deliciously spicy but not hot.
The overall outcome: a very flavorful dish and a good size portion – I could not finish the second slice of bread.
The heart shaped pesto dressing was a nice touch!
Great raw food – lucky Malmö!
By the way these two guys also got pesto hearts!
Furthermore this was the first time trying a raw food dish for them and after speaking to Perica, they invited me over to their table to give them a little introduction to what raw food is all about!
My pleasure, Sonny and David, this is my passion!
And after our lunch, David, from Stockholm, said once he returned, he was going to look up raw food places there – way to go!
Last, but not least –
Dessert! I opted for the raw organic chocolate Truffle! Creamy, chocolaty and a perfect ending!
