Dinner Date: Fisken på disken

by

Seafood and fish is a vital part of Finnish food culture, and Fisken på disken brings the best of it to the heart of Helsinki. Along with a bunch of other restaurants, young chefs have set up this modern joint in the new Kortteli court of the Kamppi mall. I do like fish and seafood, yet there aren’t really places I’d call a go-to for anyone craving seafood – so I was so happy to see them arrive and give their menu a go!

Dinner Date: Juuri

by

This Dinner Date post is actually the result of a lunch visit, but that’s okay. This time, I’m taking you to one of the most established places in Helsinki, Juuri. It took me a while to finally fully experience what they have to offer, and I hope this posts will inspire you to not wait as long as I did! Traditional Finnish dishes with a twist and a fresh interpretation, great service and casual atmosphere. I’ll be back soon.

Helsinki Coffee Festival / Finnish Roasteries to watch

In addition to a couple of impressions from the festival, I picked my favourite roasteries from around Finland to watch out for (and try).
