The Tray – place where the good vibes and delicious food are bottomless! 🙂 If you’re visiting Helsinki or live here, you should definitely check out The Tray – a restaurant which is much more than your “regular” hotel restaurant experience. Continue Reading…
First ever to open restaurant by Matti Wikberg and Tomi Björck was Farang. After Farang came another 4 restaurants which create BW restaurants that are equally successful and operating in Helsinki ,Finland and Stockholm, Sweden.
Farang brings your senses on a foodie trip to Southeast Asia, with strong Thai influences, where the “magic” of food lies in sharing it from big bowls and eating a lot of the dishes by using either spoon or with fingers.
Farang oli ensimmäinen Matti Wikbergin ja Tomi Björkin avaama ravintola. Farangin jälkeen 4 muuta ravintolaa ovat myös avanneet myöhemmin ovensa. Ja kaikki nämä BW ravintolat ovat yhtä menestyksekkäitä ja ne toimivat Helsingissä ja Tukholmassa Ruotsissa.
Farang tarjoaa Foodie matkan aisteja Kaakkois-Aasiaan, höystettynä Thaimaan vaikutteilla. Täällä ruuan “taika” perustuu jakamiseen isoista kulhoista, syöden joko lusikalla tai sormin.
I’m not sure how many of you have watched or remember the legendary TV series “Cheers”? That little cafe where “everybody knows your name”? Yep, that’s how I feel each time I step inside of Yume restaurant, as my second home, place where everybody knows my name and every time I come there, I know that I’m up for a special treat. Ever since discovering Yume’s fusion flavours bringing us the best of tastes of Asia, I have been a devoted fan of their kitchen and vision. After following through their 4 menu changes, I can only say that they’ve been getting more and more inspiring with the selection of dishes on the menu and the way how they get the best out of each dish is still unresolved mystery to me. 😀 How can they deliver at all times with all of the dishes on the menu? I mean, their sides are equally mind-blowing too.
I might have been an “outsider” ( translation of Gaijin ) to Gaijin when I have visited it last year, but this time around I knew what I could expect from a long standing Asian fusion kitchen and still one of the top choices in Helsinki to go for a private dining or special occasion one. I was very eager to come back to Gaijin and try the highlights from the new menu.
Hello my dear readers! I have a new post ready for you from my series of “Visit Helsinki” posts in which I present you the best places in my city where to go dining, shopping, exploring, hotels to stay at, etc. I’m so glad that the response to these kind of posts has been so welcoming and accepting that I’m more than excited to continue bringing you and discovering you the real gems that Helsinki has to offer, no matter if you’re a local or a tourist, this city has a lot to offer and I’m here to prove that with my “Visit Helsinki” posts. 🙂
If you know me at all by reading this blog and by checking my Instagram account, you might have concluded by now how impressed and in love I am with anything Asian, esp. Japanese food, language and traditions. After travelling around the Europe and US, I have experienced wonderful Japanese/ Asian fusion restaurants, out of some have Michelin stars, but little did I know that I would get so positively surprised by discovering some real gems in my own hometown, Helsinki.
