Visit Helsinki: Lunch at Gaijin

March 23, 2017

I’m back with the new post for one of my favourite sections on the blog: “Visit Helsinki”. I’m always asked by many where to go, what to see or where to eat when visiting Helsinki and I’m always more than happy to give suggestions and help out to experience (and taste) Helsinki at it’s best. ūüôā

One of my favourite recommendations on where to go and eat, because as a self proclaimed, certified foodie and bon vivant, I’m always keeping my eyes and ears open on what good new spots have opened up in the city as well as what’s on the offer in some of the good, old favourites such as Gaijin!¬† 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…

Visit Helsinki: Fisken på disken

December 29, 2016

In the beginning of this month a long awaited 5th floor in Kamppi shopping mall got a huge facelift or shall I say a complete makeover?! Everybody was waiting for many months to see the final reveal of “Kortteli”. After years of having a dull, not well used space with a ton of potential it finally got completely redesigned and the space got filled with a so called food block.

Visit Helsinki: Little Paris

November 3, 2016

What are the odds that while visiting middle of North Europe, Helsinki, you get to experience the charm and romance of Paris? It is possible at restaurant Pastis! Authentic Parisian vibe, delicious food and coziness of the restaurant’s decor could be easily misplaced with any place in Montmartre for instance. Our sweet hostes Camilla told us that there are many Pastis named restaurants in Europe ( in US too, for example in NYC ) but there is only one Pastis in Helsinki and it’s a must visit place.

Visit Helsinki: Farang

September 29, 2016

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, h√∂ystettyn√§ Thaimaan vaikutteilla. T√§√§ll√§ ruuan “taika” perustuu jakamiseen isoista kulhoista, sy√∂den joko lusikalla tai sormin.

Visit Helsinki: Boulevard Social

September 22, 2016

It’s been couple of months since I’ve been to a wonderful restaurant in the heart of Helsinki city – Boulevard Social. If you are interested, you can read my previous review here. It was around Christmas time when I had the pleasure to try the enchanting tastes and flavours of Mediterranean delight at Boulevard Social. Third restaurant to open by the BW restaurant chain, but nothing less successful or amazing as compared to the other restaurants.

Siitä on muutama kuukausi aikaa kun kävin viimeksi tässä mahtavassa ravintolassa, mikä sijaitsee aivan Helsingin sydämessä РNimittäin Boulevard Socialissa. Jos olet kiinnostunut niin voit lukea minun edellisen arvosteluni täältä. Se taisi olla viime vuonna Joulun aikoihin kun minulla oli ilo päästä kokeilemaan näitä lumoavia Välimeren makuja Boulevard Socialissa. Kolmannessa ravintolassa minkä BW ravintola ketju on aikoinaan avannut. Ja se ei ole yhtään sen vähäpätöisempi ravintola kun ne ketjun aikaisemmatkaan paikat.
