The very word "sousto", in English "a mouthful or bite", evokes the feeling of something appetizing. In this case it means a bite of good Czech food or as we see it "a taste of Czechia in every bite".
Sou100 opened in 2018, which is also the 100th anniversary of the republic’s founding. It is no coincidence that we acknowledge this centennial celebration by showing respect for traditional Czech cuisine, which also deserves to be celebrated. While we acknowledge the past we are also opening a new era in the Czech Republic through our modern Czech cuisine.
The Czech language, which has an abundance of puns and expressions, has given us the possibility of connecting these two themes thus creating "Sou100" (100 = sto (in the Czech language) → Sou100 = sousto (in the Czech language).
Sou100, which is located in the Prague Žižkov area, is a modern Czech beer restaurant. Here we draw on traditional Czech recipes with the meals prepared in line with the contemporary modern style. We aim to maximize the amount of fresh, locally produced ingredients.
We take special care of our beer. There are eight different types of beer on tap. We also combine beer with dishes, this means that with each meal you receive a recommendation as to which beer is most suitable. For wine lovers we can offer selected wines from Bohemian and Moravian wineries.
We work with food ingredients carefully so as not to waste them. We also try to be environmentally friendly and therefore, for example, we print our menu on recyclable paper.
In regards to the design of the interior we called on IOstudio, a company which has been awarded in the past for their design of restaurant facilities and concepts. They managed to create a modern yet homely and pleasant atmosphere. At the same time some signature elements have been incorporated that refer to our other projects. Crate-like walls are meant to evoke the fact that we are a company that also provides catering services. In addition to creating intimate separate spaces in the restaurant, yellow glass panels with bubbles represent a glass filled with golden beer.
Who is behind all this?
Our company was established as a catering company in 1995. Over time we've added other projects. First, it was the Italian restaurant Fabiano in Prague Liboc, which has become a traditional oasis of Italian cuisine in the area. Later we expanded with Café Empiria in Prague Pankrác. Over the years other projects were initiated, but they changed as times changed. However, 2018 was an important milestone for us. We partnered in the opening of the Cubex Center Prague as the principal catering supplier and above all, we opened Sou100 Žižkov which we hope to expand around Prague.
