5th episode was recorded in the classic brasserie Alexanderplats that is located conveniently by the Helsinki’s main boulevard.
Miia Paavola, senior onboard manager at rising UK startup called Pleo spent the night dining out with me and I have to say it was great to catch up with her after a long while. We used to work together scouting and partnering with fintech startups for OP Financial group.
Pleo is still relatively unknown for us in the Nordics, but no doubt, we will be getting acquainted with Pleo’s offering in the forth-coming years (especially, in case you happen to be working for a small or medium-sized business).
This restaurant has made its way high up on the Top 50 list position, as it can be found from position 13.
We went for the 3 course menu number 2, which served mozzarella burrata, smoked salmon and chocolate cake (full disclosure: Miia switched chocolate cake to pot of lemon to better fit the dessert to her taste buds). This place really delivered these dishes perfectly respecting the label on the menu card. No surprises at all, especially for worse. Here you get what you order, is what I am saying.
This place is highly recommended for date night that you want to spend focused on the person you are with, and when you definitely don’t want the food to fail. It has earned its place in the Top 50 list by executing the standard of an european Brasserie perfectly.
You’ll also hear a quick comment from the other co-founder of Alexanderplats, Sampo Kantele.
