Mikko imports his wines and sources the ingredients locally, and as the amount of …

Green Hippo (Cafè) has been operative for 3 years now in Punavuori. As it is expanding to another core-demographically hot spot for it, namely Kallio, I decided to give this place more love and love it deserves.

During this Season 2, I'm still going out with people I know - or people who have volunteered to get to know me over a dinner. This time, we don't have a list per se, but just places that people like or love in Helsinki. Luis Orozco is a colleague from many adventures and was kind enough to show me this spectacular establishment in Teurastamo (also…

Nolla (zero in Finnish) is the 29th episode of HelsinkiEats, and it certainly lives up to the promise by being one of the original zero waste Restaurants in the world. The concept of sustainability has obviously gained momentum around the world for the right reasons, but I do have to say that I have not really paid too much attention to the fact be…

Instead, here's my monologue explaining why you want to eat here. To put it it simply: Gastro Cafe Kallio is a great venue, amazing food and a…
