A place where to cultivate ideas and
harvest fun through food

A Lot is a Korean pop-up cafe which was open in Helsinki for eight Sundays. Its name means a small piece of ground where we would like to seed inspirations, cultivate ideas, and harvest fun with people through food experience. As a research regarding social food, we served Korean tea, dessert, and meal of the day under the main concept of a piece of lot.

Soft earth balls: Stronger and deeper taste depending on the brightness of colours.
A LOT dessert trio: Stronger and deeper taste depending on the sharpness of shapes.
A LOT Trio is our tea tasting menu which you can start from a seed (cassia seed), continue with a root (solomon's seal) and finish with a grain (roasted barley). This way, we may be able to feel, taste, and thoroughly understand the course of nature.
