Restaurant Day in Helsinki

Today is Restaurant Day in Finland, as well in many other countries around the world. Restaurant Day is about people cooking for their neighbors, workmates, friends or complete strangers. It is also about bringing people together in a massive celebration of food, and in many cases, really good food. What it really amazes me about Restaurant Day in Finland, is how popular it has become in a span of only 3 years, and how it has changed people’s attitudes towards the concept of sharing, of getting together to have a bite and do some catching up with our mates, extended family etc. It is also a great opportunity to try different cuisines from around the world, without spending a fortune, as the case usually is, especially inFinland, where eating out is expensive and quality does not often meet your expectations.

This time we had some delicious vietnamese rolls accompanied by mouthwatering kimchi rice from Fresh Asian Twists and to keep our sweet tooth satisfied, some super-sweet coconut cakes from our next door neighbor’s bike-stall, KookosJookos! On the day that summer finally arrived also to this corner of Europe, what else do I really need to have a fantastic time?! 🙂

    • I am so sorry, I didn’t reply earlier. I have had this horrible flu for a couple of days now.
      Yes, it’s really a great idea. Although this time, some people complained that the whole thing is getting a little bit too commercial. On the other hand, you can still find many people that prepare amazing food, and it is clear they don’t do it for money but for the fun of it.
