Wine and pizza are likely not the two main highlights of most articles, but I think Paulibron in central Malmö really sticks out in these two areas.
Their lunch pizza buffet on weekdays 11:00 – 14:00 includes a soda and is good value for money, and they make sure the buffet’s slices have enough toppings and cheese without scattering them unevenly and stingily in a rush.
Something I remember finding very odd the first time eating a pizza in Sweden is the cabbage salad practically all pizzerias serve with pizza. It consists of white cabbage, oil, vinegar, and sometimes black pepper and pickled red peppers. The quality can also vary a lot. Paulibron’s is good and they have a big bowl of it by the buffet to take as much as you like from.
Regarding wine, many bars and restaurants in Sweden have an ‘after-work’ special during certain hours for a draft beer or house wine by the glass – and Paulibron is no exception. Many places might have a good price, but the wine is often served in something that resembles more like the centilitre capacity of a shot glass, despite its shape being a wine glass.
What makes Paulibron stick out a cut above the rest is that the price is good and they pour the wine in big glasses – and as a very generous serving. I just love sitting in the sun with a big glass of wine on their patio seating a stone’s throw away from Malmö’s charming canal.
