The second episode takes place in, now TV-famous restaurant, Finnjävel, which is one of the 4 restaurants owned by Henri Alen (4 included in the Top 50 Restaurants list).
In this episode, the guests battle hard with the food to make this interesting. Doug Castro and Markku Mäkeläinen both share an interesting perspective to how Helsinki stands out as a great place to be an entrepreneur. Doug runs two companies, and is originally from Chile. While Markku spent his last few years in Facebook (and around the world, really) to build initiatives like internet.org.
Doug's company, Neural DSP, is currently hiring talented audio, embedded engineers, data scientists and UI/UX designers to build the next generation of audio processing software and hardware tools. Find out more about Neural DSP from https://neuraldsp.com/.
Finnjävel is ranked 8th on the Top 50 restaurants in Finland list, and even though it is a traditional cuisine from Finland, it doesn't mean that the food is boring or tasteless. (Sorry, Finland, but it can be, amirite?)
We all enjoyed the Finnjävel 4-course dining menu (in Sali) with Fish Delicacies, Artichoke starter, Dill-meat, and concluded with a dessert. Very balanced, traditional yet fine.
Highly recommended for the events when you really need to explain Finnish cuisine without feeling that we have limited culture. Finnjävel delivers an experience that you can be proud of and that feels good to eat.
Henri Alen, as one of the owners, will also share his view on the podcast.
