Most of the stuff I love is somehow connected to good food. And today was no exception – the Streat Helsinki EATS is finally here!
Two days filled with amazing street food, 200 something different meals to choose from, what an awesome event to break the long wait between the ever-so-popular Restaurant Days.
I was all excited about food in general – and my aim was to try out at least two new things. There were thousands of people everywhere and the lines for the food trucks and stalls were pretty long so we walked around for a bit. So difficult to choose what to eat when everything looks fabulous!
Unfortunately I couldn’t find the frog legs and champagne couscous, but the always-so-yummy falafels, sweet potato chips and saffron bread with hummus etc was simply amazing. €10 well spent!
The sun was shining, but with the freezing wind eating outside wasn’t that pleasant. The streets were filled with people and everyone was in a good mood despite the cold – it was great to see people smile after the long dark winter!
And what would a great food day be like without some serious desserts! Off to all you can eat cake at KakkuGalleria – wow. With fifteen-something cakes and pastries to choose from (and a warm cup of tea), and great group of friends of course, the day couldn’t have been better! After six delicious pieces of cake it was time to head home accompanied by a sugar-high of the year. Definitely recommend that place for anyone with a sweet tooth!
PS: Sugar crash sucks. But all in all, I had an awesome day!
Time for an elk or mushroom burger – and hopefully the frog legs – tomorrow, or maybe something even more exotic. I guess I can say I love food 🙂
