Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city, located in the southernmost county of Skane, is coming into its own as one of the most inspiring cities in Scandinavia for rich eating options. The city’s greatest food affair is the diversity of ethnic eats in its varied neighbourhoods. A third of Malmö’s population has foreign origins, and it’s no surprise that dishes from Thailand to Iran to Korea can be found along the city’s tree-lined streets.
“Malmö is changing very quickly right now,” says native son Marko Wramén, a writer and photographer who recently moved back to the once-gritty port city from Berlin. “New bars and restaurants are popping up like love affairs on spring break, and not even those of us who were born here can keep up.”
