New kind of canteen

Comparing a canteen to a restaurant seems inappropriate. The first caters to large crowds short on time, offering previously prepared food that has been kept warm all day. The latter prepares the dish selected by the client to order. These two different types of eateries have remained as far apart as night and day.

La Söök is a new canteen run by a head chef with fine-dining experience. On the other hand, the staff only have experience with mass catering. The result is a canteen that does not intend to compete with restaurants but rather wants to be a level above other canteens.

The interior here is minimalist, white and bright. The air is free of any kind of aroma, and the level of cleanliness is close to sterile. The dishes that change daily look like standard canteen fare, but the food has more flavour. More work has been put into them than is customary in canteens.

The result is a simple eatery where the food is not simply for sustenance. And the idea of coming here for a meeting doesn’t seem alien in the slightest.
