Minato sushi

September 13, 2019

Minato sushi is a lovely little restaurant located in the city centre of Helsinki, it has opened a little over a year ago and is ran by two very passionate foodies and professional chefs, Tuomo and Riina. Riina has 17 years of experience and is very specific about sushi rice, fresh fish, perfect cuts and giving an own signature twist to the dishes.

Minato sushi has a small but very satisfying and delicious menu which will definitely leave you enough of choices to satisfy your cravings.

Minato sushi is a welcoming breeze of “fresh air” in the sea of wanna be Japanese and sushi buffets which have taken over Helsinki food scene.

Minato sushi delivers to your doors too, so if you’re living in Helsinki you can order their delicious sushi via the delivery services too.

While visiting Minato sushi, it was such a pleasure to talk to Tuomo a young, very involved and proud force of the restaurant. We had a delicious chance to indulge in miso soup with grilled salmon and portobello pieces, sashimi and sushi platter including signature roll, Kolari with smoked reindeer.

Just a little bit before we have dined at Minato, they had two special days of fresh tuna and they promise to have more of those kind of surprises in the future. 🙂

*Thank you Tuomo for this opportunity. This post has been made in collaboration with Minato sushi but all of the opinions are my own.

Dreams of sushi with Foodora

December 19, 2015

I dream of sushi, all the time! I have found my “THE” food choice and whenever it’s possible, I go for a sushi date or very rarely do the takeaway sushi. The reason why I don’t do the takeaway often is because I believe that the sushi is at it’s best and is supposed to be eaten right after it’s been prepared by the sushi chef.

Dinner at Nobu Shoreditch

October 2, 2017

Nobu Shoreditch, a newcomer to the ever growing restaurant scene in London. Dinner at Nobu Shoreditch was on top of the “must visit” places on my travel bucket list during my recent trip to London. Nobu restaurants are a worldwide group of top notch, Japanese cuisine and fine dining restaurants, coming from the celebrated Japanese chef Nobu Matsuhisa.

Nobu Shoreditch is also owned by a super famous Hollywood actor Robert DeNiro who also attended the opening of this restaurant and the first Nobu hotel in London a few months ago. By opening Nobu Shoreditch hotel and restaurant, Shoreditch area got a big “upgrade” to already buzzing and growing area of London that is quickly becoming one of the coolest areas in town to live, explore, work… You name it! 🙂  Continue Reading…

Yumetastic dinner

March 2, 2017

After a short break, I’m back with a new review in my cycle of “Visit Helsinki” posts. I have to admit that at some point I felt fed up with those (this coming from a true foodie and bon vivant sounds silly :D) and taking a short breather was just what I wanted and needed. I got ecstatic writing this post and bringing back the reviews of new and interesting places to visit in Helsinki as well as revisit some of the all time favourites.  Continue Reading…

5 for Friday

January 6, 2017

Good Friday morning everybody! Besides already being on holidays in Croatia, today is an official holiday day so I won’t be chit-chatting for too long as I still have some of my best friends to meet, prepare and eat a family lunch and possibly take a walk outdoors in the evening if the weather allows.

November 18, 2016

Friday always seems to come faster than I’m ready for it! They say that the older you get, the days seem to fly by in a blink of an eye and I… I have to agree with this theory. I can’t believe that end of the year is here and that we have experienced the first snow already AND the festive season is in it’s full swing! Pre-Christmas parties are taking place “left and right”, the city has been decorated in Christmas ornaments and lights… Some people have even put up their Christmas trees!!

Oh my… Birthday week of celebrating and being so overwhelmed and on the go, surrounded by so many friends ( and people in general ) on daily basis got to me… My energy is officially running low atm. 😀 I still have so many cool things and outings planned for this weekend and I’m totally set on taking Monday and Tuesday as my “pampering days”. 😀

No niin. Syntymäpäivä viikko menossa juhlistaen. Olen todella innoissani ja kokoajan liikkeessä. Olen ympäröinyt itseni rakkailla ystävillä (ja ylipäänsä ihmisillä) päivittäin, ja se on maksanut veronsa. Sillä energiavarantoni alkavat ehtymään täällä hetkellä… 😊 Minulla on monta asiaa ja menoa suunniteltuna tälle viikonlopulle. Joten olen päättänyt pyhittää tulevan Maanantain ja Tiistain “hemmottelulle”. 😊
