The road leading down from the Boulevard San Pedro to the paseo is quickly becoming a foodie favourite, with several restaurants due to open or have already opened in the past few weeks. The new restaurant Km 0 is the latest addition to the San Pedro foodie scene.

Run by the vivacious Amanda Gedeon, who has enjoyed success with the Belaria II 2 next to the H10 Andalucia Plaza Hotel, Km 0 aims to bring fresh locally sourced produced to diners. “The restaurant is called KM 0 because almost everything that we cook comes from Malaga province – apart from the meat that comes from Galicia” explains Amanda. “And there are some surprising specialties – our mozzarella is made in Malaga for example.

It’s a simple concept using local ingredients indigenous to Malaga, including organic vegetables and fruit from farmers markets, fish brought in daily from Marbella port, eggs and breads from Coin, oil from Malaga, wines from Ronda and craft beers from La Campana. Nintey per cent of km 0’s menu is gluten free.

The interior of Km 0 is light and airy, with lots of striped back wood effects and comfortable chairs. Offering breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner there is also outside seating, perfect for indulging in a little spot of people watching. As you would expect there is free wifi and the restaurant is not only child friendly, but there is even dog parking as well!

The daily specials board included Grilled Fresh Salmon, Raw Veggie Pizza and Veggie Wrap with a red pepper sauce, while the menu includes Grilled Entrecote with Chimichurri Sauce and Free Range Chicken Breast Filled with plums, dates and almond. Fish dishes include slow cooked cod loin with fresh rosemary and grilled or papillote sea bass supreme with garlic and parsley.

We started with the vegan sushi that looked brilliant (the rice is grated cauliflower) and tasted even better.  Cauliflower and pined nut Maki tamari. Next up was “Km 0” Serranito on crispy Ciabatta. Marinated chicken Carpaccio, Serrano Ham, tomato and red pepper jam followed by the Mozzarella, cherry tomatoes, strawberry and anchovy salad with salmorejo dressing

We then had the Quinoa and vegetable salad with sun dried tomatoes, fresh orange, black olives, Kombi powder and a date and mustard dressing, full of protein that Amanda informed us was referred to by the Aztecs and Incas as “Warrior Food!”. All were excellent.

For dessert we shared a totally brilliant Roast Banana and dulce de leche cheesecake with chocolate crunch (I thought it wise to steer clear of the Red Wine and Rum soup with blood orange sorbet and fresh fruit. It looked pretty potent!).

If you thought that raw and vegan dishes were boring, check out Km 0 where the food is anything but. But just be careful of the red wine and port soup…
