Malmö (the third largest city in Sweden in the most southern part) just got their second raw food restaurant and café. Way to go! On March, 2011 Raw Food House opened their doors to the public.
Who is behind this?
Linda and Jonathan Nilsson are the couple who launched this venture. Full of engagement and caring vision they want to show their customers the many advantages with both raw foods and living this sustainable life style.
Is the creative force behind all the delicious raw dishes served here. She has a background in owning and operating a vegetarian restaurant prior to opening their existing place.
Linda and Jonathan Nilsson
Is more of the front figure in running the place. He is passionate about bees, both in the ethical keeping of them and their healthy products, like honey and bee pollen. If you are lucky he might have his own fresh (as in not dried) bee pollen to serve you. Like here pictured sprinkled on a slice of watermelon.
I could not help myself and took a bite or two before taking this picture!
Linda does not like to strictly follow recipes, but rather create as she goes along. Many of her new raw creations are offered as “dagens” (today’s special) as a test to get a feedback and review from their customers. If it is a hit you might find it up on the menu board the next day.
The most well-liked dishes are their salads, but they offer everything from a burger plate (raw vegetarian of course), Zucchini pasta, Gazpacho soup to juices, cakes and sweets.
Their frozen “veggielicious” banana ice cream is a sure thing.

Many dishes contain fresh herbs which Linda brings from her own garden. Both the cakes and tables are decorated with her flowers too.
The chocolate “Snickers” cake is by far the most popular afternoon treat
Only healthy ingredients
As with all raw foods, the dishes contain no lactose, gluten, eggs, sugar or white flour.
So people who are allergic to any of these items can actually, for the first time in their lives, enter the restaurant and eat everything displayed.
In addition to serving great foods, Raw Food House offers workshops, lectures and other events to help spread the many advantages with eating raw foods and living this lifestyle.
The place is cozy and decorated showing the thoughts behind not only the ecologically grown foods that are offered, but also the sustainability in using discarded material from old torn-down buildings displayed in new and creative ways.
There is seating for 20-25 people
And weather permitting for 10 to 15 more outside
