Sajvva, Malmo, Sweden
Vegetarian World Food for All
Animal products have no natural part in these dishes, so nobody will miss them
Sajvva is a vegetarian / vegan restaurant, located in Malmo; a beautiful, small coastal city in southern Sweden, neighbouring Copenhagen via the Öresund bridge. As Sweden's third largest city, it is a place where old meets new, perfectly harmonising its historical castle and squares with the modern cosmopolitan promenades and redeveloped waterfront.
Having spent the day cycling miles along the coastline and soaking up the Swedish sun, we decided that herrings were not the answer for dinner, but to try Sajvva for our supper, as it had come highly recommended.
The outcome was that we found it so completely delicious, we’d have eaten it all over again, if only we had space! The food converted the carnivores in us to being more open to dine at other vegan/vegetarian restaurants in the future. The small, family run restaurant was packed come 8pm, the setting was cosy and relaxed.
With creativity at the focus of Sajvva’s menu, inspiration is taken from all around the world to introduce customers to new flavours, excite the palette and leave a lasting memory.
All dishes are vegetarian, with the majority also being vegan and gluten free. We opted for the sharing starters and Thali style sharing main courses. Not only were they presented beautifully but they tasted amazing. To compliment the food, the drinks were carefully selected from small-scale breweries, and there was also a large alcohol-free selection which was organic and vegan where possible.
It opened our eyes to the endless possibilities of the vegetarian / vegan diet and I will certainly try more of this type of restaurant in the future (although they will have a hard act to follow)!
