Traditional Finnish foods are one of the things you must try when visiting Helsinki, especially since reindeer dishes are hard to find in other countries. For some tasty traditional dishes, check out Kappeli, a cozy restaurant with excellent service and even better food.

The highlights of the menu are of course, the sauteed reindeer with rowanberry sauce and mashed veggies, the elk cutlet or the traditional salmon soup. There aren't many options for vegetarians, but even if you don't want a full course meal you should definitely buy some dessert (lingonberry pie with vanilla sauce or some warm chocolate cake with orange sorbet).

Helsinki History

When the Swedish King Gustav Vasa decided to establish a new settlement in 1550, he did so for very pragmatic reasons: he wanted the new town, Helsingfors, to become the most important trading centre in the region.
