Eating Out

Here're some of the dinners
that had in Helsinki
last weekend
Had "Menu Maison"
at Magne Sud
(= "eat the south" - a bit funny!)
- started with a glass of champagne:
Janisson Carte Blanche

Continued with rosé wine
Chateau Minuty Moments, France
(Grenache, Tibouren, Cinsault)
- excellent rosé!

Beef carpaccio
- very nice, thin slices
. Sea Bass Ligurian way
- don't know what made it Ligurian
but anyway the fish was very good
. Chocolate mousse
- rich taste, perfect texture
- the nuts, raisins etc made it a bit too heavy
(not a small portion!)
.Nice Mediterranean restaurant,
good, friendly service,
fresh, rather timeless interior.

Tehtaankatu 34 D
00150 Helsinki
. Champagne Bar called Sweet
at Stockmann's
Fresh orchids on the tables

Had a snack there:
Reindeer sandwich & pistacchio macaron
with a cup of tea

. Had a glass of Prosecco or 2...
at LeBonk

Seaweed rolls at Korea House
- almost like sushi
- very tasty rolls filled with rice, vegetables and tuna
Bulgogi set for 2
as the main course
- specially marinated thin sliced beef
with kimchi...
Kimchi 김치 is a traditional fermented Korean dish,
made of vegetables with varied seasonings.
Kimchi may also refer to unfermented vegetable dishes.
There are hundreds of varieties of kimchi,
made with a main vegetable ingredient such as
napa cabbage, radish, green onion or cucumber.
Kimchi is the most common banchan,
or side dish, in Korean cuisine.
Kimchi is also a main ingredient for many popular Korean dishes
such as kimchi stew 김치찌개;
kimchi soup 김칫국;
and kimchi fried rice 김치볶음밥
... salad leaves
to make rolls filled with...

...rice & kind of paste (not very hot)
Boiling Bulgogi
seasoned with hot chili
- the chili was on a separate bowl
and you could add them on the pan
as you liked
Never had Korean meal before
- liked it a lot!
Korea House
Mariankatu 19

Dinner at Sundmans krog
Toast Skagen with roe on top

Glow fried lavaret with shrimp sauce

but next time will ask it without the risotto & spinach,
too much
