An institution. In every city you find one eatery that in some way has become a cultural monument. And in Malmö, it is Tempo Bar & Kök. The bohemian hang-out serves reliable, arty dishes and the eccentric interior is a mix of 1950s flea market finds that reflect the eccentric staff’s outward bohemian bent and inner love for their restaurant. The food is super-reliable. Duck rillette served with cornichons, red onion jam and smoked almonds is a poetic match with many of the innumerable specialty beers. Kropp-kakor potato dumplings – filled with smoked mushrooms, lingonberries and served with burnt butter – are a staple on the menu, as are mussel soup and oysters. Baked apple with rosehip caramel and served with mascarpone is executed with a rustic elegance and to perfection – every time.
