A good Swedish friend also into his food recommended this restaurant, Rebell and what a great little restaurant it was. They don’t advertise heavily and you won’t really find it listed on tripadvisor or any of the other big sites, so I’m guessing it’s quite new.

They served bread in a bag, a few pieces of nice crusty bread that went well with the soft butter.

We sat outside, enjoying the long hours of sunlight where we had a good Swedish beer while we perused the menu. They had an English translated menu but the bound book was only in Swedish. I guess it’s a popular place that has been around because they seem to already published a book.

I started with a bag of smoked prawns served with a homemade aioli. The prawns were quite small but super tasty, the smoking effect turning the tiny flesh into wonderfully flavoured hunks of meat. Even though they were small prawns, it was a very generous serving for a starter.

I asked the hotel to book for us, but as you can see on a Tuesday evening in Malmö, it probably wasn’t too hard to get a table.

The recommended dish to have are their pork ribs, served with some freshly sliced apple and home made coleslaw. The ribs were perfectly tender and although I don’t think they equate to the “best ribs ever”, they were pretty good for a stewed variation. They definitely could have done with some more smokiness, but very very nice.

Dessert was just as stunning. Small flowers of white chocolate mousse piped into flowers on a plate, decorated with strips of beetroot and an arugla (rocket!) sorbet that was actually a really perfect combination. I thought the arugula sorbet potentially overpowered the subtle mousse flavourings but it was perfectly light and refreshing.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of this restaurant and would highly recommend it. I’ll definitely be returning if I ever go back to Malmo.
