SÖDER creates a taste palette from Starters & Desserts
Why order a main course when small portions from the SÖDER menu bring together the best of modern Nordic cuisine?
Restaurant founder, Lotten Lindborg-Suhonen, often found herself ordering several appetisers while eating out, skipping the main course completely. She also found that she was not alone in doing this. A main course is often too filling and flavours can be a bit one dimensional. Lotten had more fun ordering three different starters to taste the different flavours. This discovery was the inspiration for SÖDER.
SÖDER Chef Oliver Lauronen’s culinary philosophy is based on tasty variations of Scandinavian cuisine.
– We use a lot of local ingredients and emphasise their amazing flavours. So at SÖDER you can tuck into Finnish tastes with a modern twist.
The main components of the SÖDER menu change at least four times a year.
– From June 17th we’ll bring out summer flavours with Finnish new potatoes, carrots, and radish in various forms, and of course, well-sourced meat and fish.
A ticket to a Finnish movie
Attentive service and great food comes first, but the interior design, lighting and music are also well thought out at SÖDER. On the right as you enter, there´s a fresh market hall feeling with white tiles, and on the left a more bohemian atmosphere with a bold green wallpaper. It’s almost like watching a Finnish retro movie.
– We wanted to create a milieu like a movie, so our guests always want to see what happens next!
Lotten describes the drinks list as a carefully chosen selection of basics and natural wines.
– Our speciality is Södra beer, produced by a Swedish micro brewery. You will not find it anywhere else in Finland.
