I’m a huge sucker for Mexican food…
…and I mean HUGE. I’d eat guacamole everyday if I could, but, unfortunately, avocados are pretty freakin’ expensive.
When visiting Malmo for the first time last September, I was excited to quickly find a place where I could get my Mexican food fix - Eatery Social Taquería at the Clarion Malmö Live Hotel.
Despite coming across the place at the end of last summer, it wasn’t until recently that Andrew and I actually went to try it… and now we kind of can’t stay away.
“Mucho Mas Que Una Taquería”
Eatery Social Taquería is, as their slogan suggests, “Much More Than a Taco Restaurant.”
They serve up some seriously tasty tacos, yes… but they also offer guests an awesome atmosphere. Eatery Social is the perfect spot for any occasion - whether you are grabbing a quick bite and after work drinks or celebrating something special.
Created by Marcus Samuelsson, the restaurant’s dishes are influenced and inspired by the food and cultures of Mexico, Manhattan, Peru, and Scandanavia.
Samuelsson, an Ethiopian Swedish chef has been cooking his whole life. On his personal website, he says, “My mission with each project – whether it be a new restaurant, book, or TV show – is to celebrate the food, the culture, and hopefully inspire others to be adventurous, learn something new, and get cooking!”

At Malmo’s Eatery Social Taquería, Latin American flavors are combined with a local twist to make unique and delicious foods. It’s also pretty freakin’ cute.
Food + Drinks
For starters, we always get the nachos. They are served with salsa and guacamole, which for me is a no brainer because avocados… duh.
You might find your main course decision to be a bit more tricky because they have SO much to choose from.
If you’re hungry, go for a sharing platter. On our last visit, we got the chicken fajitas and, I kid you not, Andrew said “OMG THIS IS SO GOOD,” every other bite. It was WAY too much for the two of us - so unless you’ve got a big appetite, I’d suggest bringing a friend (or two).
If you’re in the mood for something smaller, try the tacos. It is a taqueria afterall!
The tacos are served in pairs and are quite filling (but not TOO filling). You should be left with just enough room for some guac and dessert. They have five different styles to choose from, but my favorites so far are the Pineapple Pork Tacos - (full disclosure… they’re also the only ones I’ve tried… When you find something THIS delicious, it’s hard to switch it up).
It wouldn’t be a trip to a Mexican Restaurant without a good ole’ adult beverage. Grab a Cerveza or one of their delicious cocktails. We got the Mexican Bulldog because it was Friday… and, if I were you, I’d maybe save this one for the weekend. Go for a regular margarita if you don’t want a pounding headache. Turns out, we can’t throw em back like we used to.
We somehow managed to save some room for dessert, and decided to try the Chocolate Y Jengibre and the Coco Pannacotta, but we both preferred the first - hands down. The sweetness of the white chocolate and sour flavors of the lime jelly complimented each other really well... But don’t take my word for it… go try it for yourself!

Yes, you read that right… They also have brunch (but only on Sundays)!
BOTTOMLESS brunch - complete with Mimosas and Bloody Marys. Which is basically a combination of all my favorite B words… Breakfast Beverages and Bottomless Brunch.
I have yet to try it for myself, but, if it’s anything like their dinner, it must be pretty dang good. The next time I have a Sunday off, you know where to find me… Or maybe you don’t know where exactly to find me… which is why I conveniently listed the location and hours below!

Reserve a Table
Given that I’ve yet to see this place on a slow night, it’s pretty safe to assume that it’s generally always packed. The restaurant is really popular among hotel guests and locals alike. If you don’t reserve a table ahead of time, chances are you’ll either end up waiting for hours, or you may not get a table at all.
Avoid the uncertainty and reserve your spot… especially if you plan on going for their bottomless Sunday brunch!
