Salt & Brygga is a local restaurant for the whole city, located right on the seafront in Malmö’s new district.
Here we serve meat, fish and vegetarian dishes - often in exciting and unusual ways, but also with a classic touch. Our chefs give the cuisine a multicultural flavour, inspired by the Mediterranean but firmly rooted in Scanian soil.
Salt & Brygga is a bit unusual in many ways. As well as offering our guests food and drink of the highest quality, we also want to make environmental thinking a part of everything we do. As Hippocrates said - “let food be thy medicine”.
We buy most of our ingredients from local producers who use healthy, organic farming methods. We follow the seasons as much as possible where fruit and vegetables are concerned, serving Scanian asparagus in May and June. You won’t find endangered eel, prawns or fish on our menu, and no genetically modified food or MSG either. We serve organic, Fair Trade coffee and have a wide range of organic teas. Our selection of organic wine and beer is unique within the region.
The whole restaurant is decorated using natural materials that are recyclable and non-allergenic. The tables for example are custom-made from Scanian elm. The leather seats are tanned using bark instead of chromium, and the chairs (made by Gemla) are painted with water-based lacquer. We’ve created the best possible environment for both our guests and our staff. Our eco-friendly stearin candles (Swan certified) are made from 100% renewable materials that, unlike oil-based paraffin candles, do not contribute towards the greenhouse effect or give off soot.
We also have a sound-absorbant matting on the ceiling, which helps keep sound to a pleasant level. In keeping with our broad approach to health awareness, Salt & Brygga has been completely non-smoking from the very first day and all staff are non-smokers. We sort all our rubbish for recycling and use compost mills to grind down the organic waste, decomposing and converting it into biogas. You could say that this, plus the solar panels covering the entire roof and south-facing wall, makes us energy self-sufficient.
