Sasu´s Chef & Sommelier
I am super late on my Helsinki posts, but better late than never! As you guys have already read, I went on a Birthday/Couple Trip to Helsinki last summer. I was very lucky to be able to eat at the Micheln Star Restaurant Ravintola Ask, found the secret Helsinki Bar (sorry no cameras allowed) and even got to find the Best Coffee Spots in Helsinki.
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
Favorite Coffee Spots in Helsinki
Last month, I travelled to Finland. It was my birthday and I've wanted to go to Helsinki since I was 5 years old. So I took a plane and spent 3 days is amazing Helsinki... I visited 3 great restaurants and found 3 great coffee shops. Surprisingly enough, Finland has great coffee spots and roasteries. I visited them all and were very impressed with all of them.
Here you can find all the restaurants I visit and frequent. From Berlin to Helsinki and from Oslo to Lima.
