OUR NEIGHBOURHOOD IS THE BEST.
This week we welcome M A L A C A R N E , a vegan cafe opening TOMORROW just up the road from us, in Mount Florida, a little ‘burb in Glasgows Southside.
WE CANNA WAIT.
Claire (great name) has been running Mala Carne as a supper club style pop up since last Summer, hosting dinners at various venues in Glasgow – and has made a right good name for herself serving up seasonal, modern dishes, all of which are Vegan or vegetarian and super delish.
I made it along to one of Claire’s last pop up events, held at neighbourhood favourite Bakery47 and fell right in love with Mala Carnes style AND RHUBARB CAKE. Heavy on the sweet laid-back atmosphere + homely, community feels – Claire has an unreal eye for style, creating warm, minimal tablescapes reminiscent of the cafe vibes we felt on a recent trip to COPENHAGEN (holy fuck i still haven’t spoke on here about NOMA but laterz. wah) and she works with some of the nicest local makers for her tablewares …
“..at MalaCarne we try to support local businesses, this also includes artists and makers. Our wine cups are made especially for our dinners by Mariella Ceramics- http://www.mariellaverkerk.com/ and our bread boards and butter knives are made by Object Company- http://www.object.company ”
With a focus on ethical, locally sourced food – something that is becoming increasingly important to our generation OHYAH – and absolutely no doubt a stylish inviting and thoughtfully put together space, I am 100emoji sure that MALA CARNE is going to be a perfect new daytime hangout spot in Glasgow + I feel super lucky to have these doors open on our daily hank walk route… Sooooooo see you in da morn Claire!
THIS LITTLE SPACE IS A MUST VISIT . follow on instagram to see what i mean. YUM.
