So we have been on Fredrikinkatu for a couple of months now. Since the move, we have found many new favourite lunch places and shops in our new hoods and thought we could share some of these with you.
First up is our go-to lunch spot; MAT. If you haven’t had lunch at MAT yet, you should definitely try it. Located on Iso-Robertinkatu it’s only a few steps away from our shop and an everyday favourite. You can always find different kinds of salads and warm foods on the menu. You can get everything take away as well which is important for us on busy days.
Another lunch spot that was new to all of us is Plootu. Located in the corner of Iso-Robertinkatu and Fredrikinkatu we can actually see this beautiful shop from our window. Plootu is actually a furniture shop, but don’t let this fool you. In the shop, they have a “Pho Corner”. Here you can find delicious Vietnamese summer rolls, Pho-soups and salads. The Hanoi style Pho-soup comes with beef, chicken or tofu. Each with own long boiled stock. The ingredients are always incredibly fresh and tasty.
Almost next door to us is the cutest shop; Papershop. Papershop is a high-quality paper goods and stationery shop. This is a shop for all paper lovers! You can find anything here; gift wrapping, cards, calendars, pencils, posters, you name it. We’re obsessed.
Our next door neighbour. Zicco is a toy- and clothing shop for babies and children. This gift shop specialises in colourful, fun and individual toys and clothing. They carry toys, games, decorative stickers, mobiles, pens, crafts sets, jewellery, hair ties, blankets, pillows, books, cards, clothes and just, everything. You can be sure to find something here every time you visit.
R/H STORE sells clothes, shoes and accessories for modern people. R/H collections represent a unique collage of Nordic minimalism, captivating prints, practical, feminine cuts and a certain spirit of northern, forest magic, all of which come together to create effortless, easy-to-wear and easy-to-care pieces that will last well beyond this season’s trends.
