Helsinki: Food I Liked

One of the best meals I had in Helsinki was when I was leaving and it was in the Airport. I must say the Helsinki Airport is pretty sweet. Nice and not too crowded too. During this peak holiday period back home, the Singapore Changi Airport feels like a market.

I say it was great because it was freshly prepared and hot. Just a simple chicken burger and the chips were nice with salt and vinegar. So much better than the thin, over-fried, almost cold chips I had at Hesburger. Here there were chefs cooking your meal on the spot. And you get one of those devices that buzzes when your meal is ready for collection. Pretty Expensive at about S$20 bucks.

The water alone cost about 6 bucks. But it was sparkling with a nice lemon taste.

Look out for My City Helsinki when you’re at the Helsinki Airport.

Well, but the chicken burger at Hesburger wasn’t too bad. Tasted like the fried chicken sandwich you get at Burger King back home.

The chocolate crossaints at the Stockman’s Food Court I can’t rave enough about. We can’t get crossaints like this which are flaky yet dense and buttery in Singapore. Just perfect and I miss them. Anyone know where to get good crossaints in Singapore. I am having massive cravings which I can’t satisfy after tasting the good stuff.

Cereal at breakfast with fresh berries was pretty good too. It was nice to see the milk turn into strawberry milk.

I think I really like American food and I think the people in Helsinki do too. I went into a Chicos and had a good bacon sandwich although the onion rings were too oily with no trace of onion.

    Great to see your travel tales!
    Croissant: I like the multigrain or sesame seed ones from Swissbake when it’s fresh out of the oven.

      yeah I know what you mean by flattened. Perhaps the difference is it how freshly made they are? The ones in Europe were denser and more ‘solid’, yet still light and flaky.

      Thanks a million for reading…..appreciate your comment too 🙂
