Penelope Restaurant is located right below one of the startup centers of Helsinki, Epicenter. Penelope is a great escape from the daily grind to a world that is warm and welcoming, like the Tapas places you’ve come to love in Spain.
Together with me sharing the plates in Penelope for this episode is Udo Szabo, a multi-talent t-shaped persona with startup and corporate war stories under his belt. Today (post-Apple) Udo is running the product management in Yousician, the world-famous guitar tuning / learning game app maker.
Udo and I go at length at what makes Apple the most amazing company, and what is required to make great products. Even if you are not into nerding, you might get kicks out of the conversation that we share over beers and medium-sized plates.
This restaurant works so that you can choose between small (one or two bites), medium (about twice as large) and large plates (kinda the size of a main course normally). All the food we had was amazing, but to tell you the truth, the conversation got me lost of all we had. At least we did Boccarons, Scallops and something great. My favourite of the dishes probably was the sweet and salty caramel goodness served as dessert.
Penelope is located on the Top 50 restaurants list position number 40, but I did like it more than that. Would I want to go back here? Absolutely. Do I understand why this place has such a low rating in TableOnline? I don’t.
This place is highly recommended for a good relaxed meal out with a friend, posse or your colleagues.
