SOUP

soup place
Rating 4.8 / 5

SOUP is the work of two Brits who came to Helsinki for love over 5 years ago.

Our vision is to take things back to a more simple time with the original old school fast food, soup!

It can be difficult to remain healthy when life is busy, so we want to provide the good people of Helsinki with wholesome, nutritious and filling meals that are served in seconds.

Our bread is baked fresh daily on the premises, because we believe that each person deserves to eat fresh bread once per day.

All our menu’s are designed to use seasonal produce, and celebrate the taste of a few key ingredients. We are also a completely vegetarian establishment.

All of our serving wear is made from recyclable materials and is biodegradable.

So come join us in celebrating vegetables and changing the fast food industry for the better.

Stay souper!

Humans deserve more places like this. I just enjoyed this Töölö soup place. We tested three of their warm soups. All were highly praised for their deep flavour, amount and variety of vegetables, spices. The homemade bread was perhaps not on a par with the soups.
The hyper minimalistic interiors and busy location are not the most attractive in my personal opinion. It may not even look like a restaurant although this may be due to the short time since the place opened for business.
I recommend it for food quality and reasonable prices.

Töölön hidden gem. Kahden britin pitämää soppapaikkaa ei välttämättä kovin moni vielä tunne, mutta syytä olisi. Tarjolla on joka päivä viittä erilaista keittoa ja paikan päällä tehtyä leipää. Huomioitava on tosin se fakta, että lihaa näistä antimista ei löydy. Tämä ei toisaalta haittaa yhtään, koska lopputulos on joka tapauksessa huikea ilman lihallisiakin iloja.

Kokeilin kahta keittoa, joista voiton vei ehdottomasti erittäin maukas kylmänä tarjoiltu tomaatti-paprikagazpacho (kuvassa). Sekaan sai laittaa krutonkeja, auringonkukansiemeniä ja halutessaan jopa popcorneja(!). Keiton kylkeen vielä tuoreen lämpimäistä leipää. Lopputulos oli kevyen täyttävä (oksymoroni, tiedän) ja oikein suunmukainen. Hinta-laatusuhde pelaa huikean korkealla tasolla, mutta suosittelen ehdottomasti panostamaan keittolautasen lisätäyttöön eurolla. Tällöin saa maistaa kahta keittoa seitsemällä eurolla. Paikka itsessään on kovin pieni ja karuhko. Palvelu sujui luonnollisesti ”toisella kotimaisella”.

Viihtyisä, urbaani lounaspaikka. Kasviskeitto saa maukkaan lisän ihanan maukkaasta leivästä ja raaka-aineet vaikuttavat laadukkailta. Terveellistä ja hyvää, nam!

Oh boy(s).

I sometimes have a hard time considering soup as "proper food", so an all soup restaurant had me wary. Boy was I wrong.

At 6 euros, this is hands down the best lucnch deal in the city, and I have a hard time grasping that they can do it Töölö, of all places. What you get for 6e is 5 soups, of which all ranged from good to excellent as well as bread and condiments. The superb beatroot tarator, sweet potato & lemongrass, and tomato and rosemary soups were the better of bunch. Leek, potato and lemon was really good too, and while there wasn't really anything wrong with the vegetable tarragon one, it came out only okay, compared to the others. All of the soups are vegetarian and I think most were vegan too, but they don't feel forced or lacking because of it. Quite the contrary.

So why not a 5/5? Well, for starters, I would've liked at least some of the soups to contain lentils or beans or something, to give them some weight. Second, it sort of feels wrong to use disposable dinnerware when you are eating the restaurant. I understand this might be a logistic necessity for the two guys running this soup joint, but still. And while providing fresh home-made bread with the soups is heartily welcomed, it wasn't as phenomenal as the soups themselves.

It's not a huge place, but takeway is also an option. The decor is very minimalistic, which I didn't mind.

This place offers incredible value for your money, and would do so even if the prices were an euro or two higher.
