Giovanni di Penco each weekday serves the most wonderful homemade pasta at the unbeatable price of about £5!!!
Freshly made bread to go with that, a perfect espresso, can you ask for more? If they have time they make panna cotta and tiramisu. Lunch only, no bookings. A bit hard to find, tucked away behind the big theatre. Follow the crowd!

The hip crowd, and everybody else loves it. Just refurbished, it's still excellent value and the food by wunderchef Bjorn Malmsten is Scandinavian with a twist.
Booking has become essential if you want to eat or simply have a beer in the bar.
Sodra Skolgatan 30A
214 22 Malmo
Lots of nice pubs and good corner shops for well priced food. Worth checking out Krua Thai for Thai food and Runtgang for records and gewgaws.
Also most of the interesting clubs and nights happen up there, and there is Folketspark for wandering about and on special occasions, like Christmas, a funfair.
Follow Sodra Forestadsg. as far as the supermarket ICA - about 1km from the centre of town - beyond the shopping centre at Triangeln.
First of all, you shouldn't miss the number one popular food in Malmo, which is of course the falafel. They come in only two sizes, large and extra large (so don't ask for a small one, even if you are suspicious). The price is as low as 15 kr, which is about a pound and they are good. The best places are Falafel No 1 in the south (close to Mollan) and Varnhemsfalafel in the east.
Furthermore, did you know that Swedes and Finns are the heaviest coffee drinkers in the world? And there isn't a single Starbucks in Sweden. If you enjoy espresso and cappuccino Malmo is the place. The best places are Lilla Kafferosteriet at Baltazargatan, Dolce Sicilia at Drottningtorget (which also has the most amazing ice cream) and Solde at Regementsgatan.
Remember that Malmo is a small place and that you can walk everywhere. Especially thorugh the area of Vastra hamnen and Bo01, with grand architecture, around Davidshall and behind (i.e. west from) Lilla Torg.
If you like jazz, world music and rhythm in general, visit Club Jeriko. Furthermore, check out Inkonst, a very friendly and cool place with both groovy clubs, theatre and poetry slams.
Enjoy. I know I do.
Swedens have a reputation of being quiet, however, they really want to talk to people. The reason they are a bit difficult to get started is that they are afraid to embarrass themselves. Don't let this stop you; go on and you'll make friends for a lifetime. Remember that everyone speaks English so don't hesitate to ask people how to find things or where to go.
