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. 🙂

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…

Sunday cafe: IP sound

December 4, 2016

Good Sunday dear readers! I’m back with my Sunday cafe in which I’m happy to present you young and inspiring creative minds which I’ve met here in Finland that aren’t Finnish or in today’s “case” a wonderful persona in form of my brother, somebody who’s been visiting Finland for many years and has been influenced by it in numerous ways.

I have two brothers and I was lucky to have my older brother stay with me for the whole month of November. I couldn’t pass on the opportunity to sit down with this young gentleman and “attack” him with some questions for Sunday cafe. I’m proud of you bro and I love you! This is what he has to say to my “interrogating”:

Vintage Allure by PANDORA

November 9, 2016

I’ve always been a lover of delicate, feminine, timeless pieces, esp. when it comes to jewellery! I’m a jewellery lover and feel “naked” if I’m not wearing at least one piece on me… Somehow, I feel that none of my looks or outfits aren’t ready unless I have put on that perfect final touch with a favourite jewellery item.

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, höystettynä Thaimaan vaikutteilla. Täällä ruuan “taika” perustuu jakamiseen isoista kulhoista, syöden 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 – Nimittäin 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.
