For the 4th episode of HelsinkiEats podcast takes place in Restaurant Plein, which is located in the beautiful wooden built cityscape of Vallila.
My co-host in this episode was Lari Tuominen, the CEO of Qvik and a member of Teknologiateollisuus Digitalization group. Qvik is super-famous for making apps that win awards. Chances are that in case you’ve used apps for Finns, you’ve used an app that has been made by Qvik.
In addition to making great apps, Qvik has been vocal p about the role of and design in app and software development. For sure, Qvik is an easy hire if you want to win an award and satisfy needs of your customers needs.
This restaurant is relatively new so it is definitely ranked lower on the Top 50 restaurant list than it should. Plein is ranked 46th best in Finland.
We enjoyed the surprise menu that had 4-courses, 3 salty and one sweet. I believe the salty dishes were cucumber-salmon salad, beef tartar and an amazing combo of wine with Wiener schnitzel that was made to perfection. Even with the all the great dishes, the two things that stand out from this outstanding display of Nordic cuisine, were the bio-wines and desert. Traditional Tuulihattu is difficult to bake, but the way it was laid on the Rhubarb bed has got the be the best dessert on my journey so far.
Highly recommended for a date night that pays homage to Nordic Cuisine, the restaurant is cozy and lovely and the food is super good. This one is a gem, way better than its ranking on the Top 50 list indicates.
