1. July 2015: Restaurant Kuldse Notsu Körts

It was the first time I have ever tried “pig’s ears” … and I must say I was not entirely to my gusto. The “crispy pig’s ears served with sauce” (EUR 7.50) are basically really just crunchy somethings (which you had no chance to identify in case you have never had pig’s ears before) with […]

1. July 2015: Restaurant Bocca

The “salmon carpaccio with avocado and strawberry salad” (EUR 12.00) not only sounded very tasty but it was actually quite refreshing. Especially the sweetness of the strawberries together with the fattiness of the avocado and the salmon made it a very sound and surprising dish. As a main course I then went for the “black […]

30. June 2015: Restaurant Ragu

The evening started with a selection of various “breads and spreads” – the bread was fresh and aromatic and the various spreads stood out as they were quite different from one another and the “blue cheese spread” was actually superb. I went for the “Chef’s 5 Course Surprise Menu” (EUR 57.00) with the “Wine Pairing” […]

30. June 2015: Helsingin Jäätelötehdas Gelateria

When making the sightseeing tour by bus, there was this little ice cream joint mentioned which was founded by Italians approximately four or so generations ago and is still family-run and is supposedly the best ice cream in Helsinki. When passing one of the joints I decided to try three different flavours, especially the ones […]

30. June 2015: Restaurant Gaijin

Once again “Where Chefs Eat” was the saviour. The Restaurant Gaijin was described as a lovely place – and I must admit it was. The idea is to combine a variety of different cuisines starting with Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The “lunch menu” (EUR 37.00) started with “Pork Bun (Pork Belly, Kimchi Mayonnaise, Pickled Cucumber, […]

30. June 2015: Restaurant Seaside Hall @ Radisson Blu Seaside

The Restaurant Seaside Hall already contains the description of the atmosphere in it – it’s pretty much a hall. The place is full, the tables are pretty close to each other so you feel like you are in a breakfast fabric. Really not too pleasant at all. However, for EUR 21.00 you get a decent […]

Arriving rather late in Helsinki as the luggage handling in HEL airport is not the fastest, I decided to have dinner at the Restaurant of the hotel I stayed at. I started with “cold smoked salmon with a twist (wasabi creme, cold smoked salmon and tartar)” (EUR 10.50, respectively EUR 8.93) which was overall rather […]

28. June 2015: Friterie Chez Georgette

If you are starving and are incredibly thirsty, the “Friterie Chez Georgette” is definitely the place to go. I went for the “French Fries” (EUR 4.50) with “Ketchup” (EUR 0.60) and “Sauce Tartare” (EUR 1.00). The French fries are super crispy and good in tasty – as simple as it is, as good the fries […]
