Episode number twenty-three (23) of HelsinkiEats takes place in the unique restaurant in the center of Helsinki, Kosmos. This cozy restaurant is not messing around, everything is honest and straightforward from menu to decor.

The unique proposition of Talented is really working as the fast growth proves. If you need great software skills for any position between a CTO and a (senior) engineer, Talented is one of the companies you might want to reach out (find out more: http://talented.fi).
This traditonal restaurant is ranked at position 37. in the Top 50 restaurant. Based on the food alone, this pretty much where it should be. But that is not really the point at all, I feel.
Menu we had gave a few options, but we kinda picked our favourites. To accompany the menu of fish and meat, I took a beer, just like you should do here. So while this dinner was not fancy pants fine dining, it was definitely about experience that is deep in the 1980s. Food was good, but not really for vegan-friendly menu. The chocolate cake was amazing.
This place is a landmark and it is very difficult to compare to anything else on this list really. Come for the atmosphere, stay for the hearty food.
