  • Summers in Sweden are absolutely divine. We're here for one weekend,

  • the weather is consistently in the low 20s with clear skies, gentle breezes and eternal sunsets.

  • M: Seriously guys, the sun sets around like 9:45, maybe 10 p.m

  • It's just been really long gorgeous days of beautiful sun

  • S: And so when Malmö tourism invited us out here to do a video on whatever we wanted,

  • we figured we'd give you a food guide. So you can enjoy your summer days here with some delicious pastries,

  • some very fine coffee and some absolutely amazing food

  • (Music)

  • M: Not to mention >FIKA ALL DAY

  • I don't think we're supposed to 'fika' all day, but we fika-ed all day

  • S: And if you've seen our video about how to eat in Japan, we've applied those same tips here

  • Martina has done heaps of research online and when we came here, we've asked heaps of people

  • where we should go. We're also gonna leave all the links of these places in the infobox below

  • Come.. it's time for some delicious food.

  • Can you get your hair out of your face we're supposed to be professional here

  • M: Hair and makeup, okay. Okay. Okay. Okay. Hang on S: Okay, okay

  • (Music)

  • M: We heard 'Blå Hoddans'.. Hoddans.. Hoddans.. someone help me from Sweden!

  • And we're here to have amazing fish and chips You can see that they're fishmongers

  • Super fresh.. supposedly they go out and they capture but they close at 1:00 p.m

  • S: This is what I've been looking forward to the most. When Martina found this place on Google Maps and on

  • the different reviews you could barely see anything about it

  • but it is packed with people waiting for delicious fish and chips, shrimp sandwiches

  • (Music)

  • S: Look at this beautiful crunchy batter. You see how the flakes have pulled away right there

  • Give you a lot more depth. Beautiful, pristine, glowing, white fish in there.

  • M: By the way..that batter, the way that it's upright like that is exactly what you're looking for in good tempura

  • in Japan. Because it means that they drop it into the batter at a certain heat and then it makes it stand up

  • S: Yeah, it splats, yeah

  • M: Yeah, and it's like a actually a really good sign.. Wow. S: Here we go

  • S: So happy to be here. M: It was worth the scooter drive

  • S: This was worth.. coming out here M: *laughs* with out little scooters..

  • S: Mhm.. The small little scooters

  • Oh my gosh.. the huge salt flakes that they have on here

  • You could taste it just spreading across your tongue. It hits you in just like a raindrop a bomb of flavor

  • The fish is so tender. You don't even need teeth to eat this you could just mush it with your tongue

  • This is one of the softest fish and chips I've ever had the batter is so light.. the salt crystals on this

  • M: Sir, would you say that the UK has been dethroned regarding if it can make fish and chips better than Sweden

  • S: I went to London maybe like 15 years ago. Fish and chips I had there, were not as impressive as what I had here

  • M: Oh oh.. he said it S: But if.. London tourism wants to bring us over..

  • I won't be opposed to that. M: *laughs*

  • S: Hey love, I got a piece for you. You try this. M: Okay, we're gonna do, we're gonna..

  • In here.. in here

  • M: Oh my god.. it's barely batter S: right!?

  • M: It's so light, it's almost like it's been egg washed and dumped like it the way that it's so crunchy and light,

  • but not thick. Look at that.. S: Beautiful

  • M: I actually feel like, if you come all the way to Malmö and you don't come to this place,

  • It's a real stupid thing for you. S: No, this is highly highly recommend

  • M: And I do also recommend taking your camera and dipping the lens inside the tartar sauce.

  • S: Oh shit! M: *laughs*

  • You can't lick the tartar sauce off the lens.. oh boy.

  • For the record. I also wanted this, but I got this so we can try two different things. So you better share with me!

  • S: No one told ya.. to get a different one M: alright.. marriage

  • S: No one told you this M: You're not allowed to..

  • S: So where should I go next?

  • Swedish lady: The favorite one is >BastardBastard

  • Swedish lady:.. that's so good S:..lovely.

  • M: We are here at 'Bastard'. That's the name of the restaurant.

  • YA BASTARD!

  • This is a bucket list place for me. Literally, we got off of an 11 hour flight,

  • went to our hotel dumped our stuff and we rushed over here. And we had an amazing meal

  • and then we immediately tried to make reservations

  • So here we are again getting an actual table ready to dig in again and share this meal with you guys

  • This place has been..

  • unavoidable no matter how much I searched online..vlogs..tags. You named it..

  • It always came up as a place you have to go to.

  • And then once we were actually here in Malmö and we were talking to the locals..

  • every single person consistently, was like 'Oh and you have to check out >Bastard

  • Now this isn't just us, it's everybody. Look.. I literally have a piece of paper of places. And what's that right there?

  • YA BASTARD

  • S: This place also has really really good wines, from what we've heard. Martina is having right now

  • But they also have a really interesting cocktail bar

  • with some original cocktails. I'm having the unholy water which according to the menu is tequila,

  • falernum and a new flavor, which is..

  • ..'F*ck Trump and his stupid f***ing wall'.

  • I wasn't sure if that would be like cheeto flavour or maybe a little fruity, tasting like..

  • Impeachments

  • I'm just kidding. I don't care about US politics at all. Let me give this a sip

  • Whoo

  • That's a spicy cocktail. Yes spice in your cocktails. Love it. So fun and playful.

  • (Music)

  • S: Oh my god ladies and gentlemen this right here is..the main event

  • This is what we wanted to share with you the most. When we were here on the first day,

  • we sat right by their massive pizza oven and we watched him make beautiful pizzas. You could just smell it

  • My eyes are salivating it's called crying..all right, by the way. This one right here has

  • mozzarella, onion, beets.. very red beets, I suppose purple beets. It has ricotta, hazelnuts and pecorino.

  • I have never had a hazelnut on a pizza before. Let's see what this tastes like

  • You have to come here just for the pizza! Are you ready? I am..

  • Hmm.. ahh.. I love changes in texture. We got the softness of the dough with the cheese,

  • really really soft onions in there and then a beautiful crunch from the hazelnuts coming through..

  • This is such a good Pizza!

  • YA BASTARD

  • M: Wow look at the color on this

  • I've had golden beets and I've had red beets before but I've never had this.. this golden red beet

  • (Music)

  • S: Wow, right? M: Now I understand your reaction

  • I was very doubtful of hazelnuts. They're the right nut. They're not overwhelming. They're crunchy

  • but they're not unpleasantly crunch. It's not like a peanut that's dry. Hmm..

  • and the pecorino cheese just kind of like.. punches out at you

  • And then you have the earthiness of the beet, kind of like balancing it out. And the pizza dough is so airy and fluffy

  • I'm taking the whole pizza Simon. S: I just order another

  • M: Aw.. true S: Brat.. what's known as a restaurant

  • The one thing that I really can't get over is this is such a dreamy location. Like the decor is so beautiful.

  • There's Bistro lights everywhere and there's a huge tree behind Simon, that's peppered

  • with these little tiny fairy lights. There's little tiny bottles hanging, filled with flowers.. on the tree

  • Tables with mismatched furniture that also will come together and a lot of mirrors on the wall

  • it's like an indoor / outdoor scenario

  • (Music)

  • That's cauliflower?! This is an explosion of magical savory flavors in your mouth

  • You're gonna be blown away.

  • I'm just gonna give you some of this right now.. just to try like a little bit..

  • S: Holy F*ck! M: Right!?

  • S: That's cauliflower? M: Yeah, it's like a sauce and a mashes potato and

  • cheese came together and made love S: Yeah.. it definitely does have a cheesiness to it

  • M: Doesn't it..?

  • S: Oh my god! What a juicy pork that is. This is the star of the show!

  • The Pizza before was the star show, but this 'Munka Pork'.. this is..

  • a really 'wow' dish. One thing to note is this wasn't on the menu when we were here two days ago

  • The menu is constantly changing.

  • The pizza we had today is very different from the pizza we had two days ago

  • They just look for what seasonal. We saw the guy walk in with the fresh (?)

  • This place is really respectful of the ingredients that they work with.

  • and it really shows in the dishes that they serve you

  • Wow Wow

  • (Music)

  • M: All right guys, we're gonna have an important discussion about 'fika' and 'hygge'

  • 'fika' is very important to Swedish culture and I suspect in Danish culture as well. Basically..

  • It's going for coffee and having a pastry or having a sandwich with a friend or colleague or even a stranger

  • But it is more than just the act of having coffee and eating food

  • It's kind of both a noun and a verb at the same time you go for fika

  • and then you 'fika' ..it's feeling that you get that makes you feel hygge

  • And 'hygge' is like a cozy, happy...

  • Simon is looking at me.. Simon is looking at me very suspiciously

  • S: Hygge is.. M: What are you trying to.. why are you..

  • S: Yes, it is a very confusing concept and people went at great lengths to explain it to us. From what I've heard

  • It's not just the act of like having a coffee and a pastry

  • It's the act of sitting down and socializing to people. It's the socialising aspect that's really important

  • That's why it was really interesting how so many strangers talked to us so openly and so kind..

  • So I think that's what 'fika' is all about. I'm not sure if fika is a noun or the verb

  • We're about to 'fika' the f*ck out of all these places

  • S: UH! M: Oow!

  • M: You're supposed to be gentle

  • S: Gentle high fives. We should just nipple flick. That's so much easier. Just like..

  • M: Don't you..! S: ..together. This is a handshake.. you're just like..

  • when you grab forearms.. okay.. and you hold the camera

  • M:.. I hold the camera and then I flick your nip

  • (Music)

  • We're in >Uggla< which I've learned means owl and this place has a whole lot of owls in them

  • They said not to bring any more owls. But I kind of find that a little bit of a challenge,

  • so if you come here make sure you bring.. they want nothing but owls in this place

  • M: *laughs* No, no.. they said no more S: .. bring it to them as gifts.

  • they will very much appreciate it

  • We're in St. Knut square.. I think that's how it's pronounced.

  • This is the cooler, hipstery part of central Malmö

  • And they really take their coffee seriously. We had a long talk with them about beans and roastery

  • They give us lots of good suggestions. And I had my first ever oat milk latte, which I never thought oat milk

  • would actually tastes as good as it actually does

  • Yeah, I'm really digging oat milk..

  • and I really enjoyed this. Try out some oat milk! Supposingly it's milk, but made for humans

  • This place is also very dog friendly - two really nice ones came in

  • (Martina's dog voiceover) Uh, I am very good boys, thank you for touching me.. uh, very good touches

  • I AM THADIUS, DESTROYER OF GALAXIES!!!

  • But my human name is Pom-Pom-Puffy-Butt-Butt

  • Make sure you come here to get some really good coffee,
