After recommending you two jewels of Helsinki’s culinary scene, it’s time to discover the third one. If you find yourself visiting or just stopping by in Helsinki on some of your trips, you must check out restaurant DOMO. I’m a HUGE Japan lover, anything related to Japan from their long and interesting culture, traditions to food is something I’m very passionate about and am always wanting to learn more.
Anybody who knows me a little bit better ( or follows me on Instagram ) already have a clue how much I’m into sushi and Japanese cuisine in general. Not a single week passes by without me tasting at least couple of sushi rolls and nigiris.
As part of my “Visit Helsinki” series of posts, DOMO was a natural choice to present you as one of the best Japanese/ sushi restaurants in Helsinki. They have opened their restaurant more than 5 years ago. Our host, Hong, explained that they’ve changed their menu during the first year after the opening but ever since then they haven’t been changing it, but are rather more concentrated in perfecting it and offering their customers fresh ingredients, esp. the raw fish and meats as well as an outstanding costumer service.
After travelling in Europe and States, it’s hard to find amazing sushi/ Japanese restaurants in smaller countries/ cities like Helsinki. Domo surprised me with the freshness and quality of their fish ( which they order in fresh every day ), interesting presentation and take on Japanese home style cooking. Domo’s central location makes it an easy reachable ( walking distance ) spot for lunch or dinner.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves. Thank you restaurant Domo and Mr.Hong for the outstanding service and delicious food.
