Restaurant OX

This spring has really spiced up Helsinki’s restaurant scene. New interesting restaurants have been popping up almost on a weekly basis. Pieni Roobertinkatu has slowly become the hippest restaurant street in town. No wonder, as the location is ideal – it is situated only a short walk from the Esplanade Park, in the heart of the Design District. One of the most interesting newcomers on the street is the recently opened restaurant OX.

The restaurant was opened by an impressive group of chefs who are also behind the Michelin starred restaurant Demo, Sushibar + Wine and restaurant Story in the Old Market Hall. The restaurant also looks good. Architect Joanna Laajisto designed the beautiful space.

Amazing burger is served during lunch. The lamb tartare served with almond crème is also really good. Delicious vegetable pitas also served, so the restaurant has vegetarian options on the menu as well.
