Savoy is a classic, a culinary gem in Helsinki that is now under new head chef delivering spectacular dishes on plate.
In this episode, I’m joined by Markus Sarja who is an entrepreneur to the core and has been starting up companies in a series. I’ve been privileged enough to see him build up OP Kevytyrittäjä while working under OP Lab few years back. Markus covers the benefits and reasons behind making the product in detail while we dine in this posh environment.
Savoy feels like straight out of a 60s movie and everything around the atmosphere, starting from the location and ending with the ingredients on the plate screams out loud prestige. This is a unique experience amongst the restaurant scene in Helsinki simply because of being modern and antique (in a good way ofc) at the same time.
Menu we enjoyed here was the Savoy tasting menu, which had high quality dishes like Foie Gras, Angler fish, Grilled Cabbage and amazing blackberry sweetness as dessert.
Savoy is entitled to 26th position at Restaurants Top 50, but probably with this show case, does actually rank a tiny bit higher - closer to Top 10, if you ask me. I’m sure I will visit this place again, just because it takes me way back to good old times.
