Soder+Ko – When West Meets East!

Fusing Scandinavian simplicity with Asian taste sensation!

I’m in a bit of a quandary! After discovering an amazing new eatery last week, part of me wants to keep it all to myself so it keeps that special atmosphere you can only find in a real hidden gem. I have however sworn a sacred oath to the Dublin Visitor Centre to uncover the coolest places to hang out and eat in Dublin, so hot off the press read on to see how I go on!

Last week I decided to head up to George’s Street for a bite to eat. With so many excellent restaurants including Brasserie 66, Rustic Stone, Acapulco and San Lorenzo I was guaranteed to get a tasty lunch. Soder+Ko is the new kid on the George’s Street Gastro Block and as a curious foodie I had to try it. Initially I was intrigued, and slightly sceptical, about the concept of fusing Scandinavian and Asian food! However, I have been completely converted by Scandasian cuisine!

While the name ‘Express Lunch’ might convey the idea of plastic cutlery and paper plates, Soder+Ko’s Express Lunch is a visually appealing cross between Tapas Style dishes and a Bento Box complete with real crockery and cutlery! Despite being a confirmed carnivore and a fairly unadventurous fish eater, I was powerless to resist the charms of the ‘Fish Express Meal’ and I am delighted I went for this option.  Lunch consisted of a bowl of Cured Salmon with white radish, a delicious ‘Prawn Ceviche’, Ko Broth, steamed white rice with al dente green beans, all accompanied by a serving dish of Oyster Sauce.  I was in foodie heaven and I could quite happily have stayed for the day.  I am already planning my return to try out the meat and vegetable Express Dishes which looked pretty good.

The downside of Lunch……. Well being honest I found it hard to go back to work after such an amazing taste sensation! Soder+Ko has an elegantly chic vibe which would be perfect for a date night or pre-theatre bite to eat. I was intrigued by the quirky cocktail menu and scrumptious food pairings.

After a busy day of sightseeing, Soder+Ko is the perfect place to enjoy a beautiful mid-priced meal in elegant surroundings. As it’s located in the heart of the Creative Quarter you’ll be spoiled for a place to finish the night with a night cap.
