Helsinki is a city surrounded by sea and forests, and nature is present on most restaurant menus, with an abundance of local Finnish ingredients. Be it rye bread, beer, or local wild fish, game, seaweed or foraged mushrooms and berries. Gastronomically, Finland is at a crossroads between the east and west, with Swedish and Russian traditions influencing the local cuisine. Today, culinary Helsinki offers a colourful smorgasbord of street food, Asian flavours, fine dining, wine bars, coffee shops, bakeries and bistros – among these, some classical institutions and hidden gems to be discovered.
