Kulta Kitchèn is an exception to the rule, it is a restaurant located in one of the best hotels in Helsinki (Lapland Hotels Boulevard), but ... unlike the hotel restaurants usually, this one is really really good.
I'm joined in this episode with Lassi Kurkijärvi, a well merited innovator now working as the CEO of Proof Oy, a company that is designing decision making. Designing decisions is a new thing, a term that is coined by Lassi and his team to describe how the world needs better tools for pushing through important things in any organization. During the course of the meal we'll cover what this means in detail.
Lassi is an active member in Team Rynkeby and is chairing Sylva - why? We'll cover this topic too.
Our meal was the surprise menu, which unsurprisingly was finished of with Reindeer as the main course. To support this obvious choice, we got to enjoy Kuha (whitefish), which definitely was amazing and never fails. All in all, the menu was well balanced, tasty and spoke volumes of Finnish cuisine.
Kulta Kitchén is placed to 32nd location in Top 50 list, which really felt originally as too high number for a restaurant sitting in downstairs of a Hotel. However, after going through this menu, I'd say that this deserves to be closer to top 10 of the entire Finnish food scene, definitely high 20s. It was amazing.
This place is highly recommended for anyone seeking to eat traditional Finnish food in a fine dine setting.
