Helsinki is the city on the shore of the Gulf of Finland. The cold weather affects the crops and through them the menu. The Finns prefer dishes of meat, fish, berries, and mushrooms.

Blueberry pie

The most favorite pie in Finland is the blueberry pie. It's an open pie that can be made with any berries that grow in the Finnish forests. But nevertheless, the pie with a blueberry is considered the most known and by the general recognition - the tastiest.

Northern lands are rich on wild berries, such as blueberry, cranberry, etc., which are full of vitamins. Order a cake as a dessert and enjoy the taste of forest treasures. Go to Regatta to enjoy the blueberry pie which is usually served with vanilla cream. This is a very tasty dessert which should be tried once you come to Finland.

If you want to degust an unusual dish, choose cabbage rolls. They are formed of cooked cabbage leaves wrapped around a filling, usually meat and sometimes with the addition of grains. Cabbage rolls are usually served hot with fresh greens and reflect the severe Nordic nature being made of meat and a simple vegetable. Come to Sea Horse to order a plate of it.
