In June I went to Helsinki because since I was 5 years old, I wanted to see Finland. I remember my aunt's boyfriend, Jouko, would fly to Peru to visit her and he would tell me many stories about that far far away country.
On my birthday, I decided I needed to go somewhere I haven't been before. So the decision was made! I had to fly to Helsinki.
One of the most recommended places to go in Helsinki is Restaurant Ask. It is a small place located in the nice area of Kronohagen/Kruununhakawith and it has 26 seats. I was surprised to see how small it was, though it was beautifully decorated in a very minimalistic scandinavian style
In 2012, Filip Langhoff opened together with his wife Linda, a renowned sommelier, the Restaurant Ask. And used the experience he got working in restaurants like Brasserie Hansken(Oslo), El Bulli (Barcelona) & Chez Dominique (2 star restaurant in Finland) what Ask get in 2014 the got their first Michelin Star.
Filip’s philosophy consists in finding the purest ingredients and he even wonders the finnish nature in search for the best elements for his beautiful dishes. While Linda, pairs the wines and she finds small producers in countries like Germany and France to match the delicate food.
No need to write more about this. Look at the fragility and beauty of the dishes served on that evening or check Anders take on that night.
Here you can find all the restaurants I visit and frequent. From Berlin to Helsinki and from Oslo to Lima.
