Episode number 6 took place in Restaurant Muru, the relaxed bistro with a daily changing menu that is just food for pure passion as one of the founders, Henri Alen put it.
I had an opportunity to eat at Muru with my old school friend from way back, as we sat down with Kaarle Hurtig. Kaarle has been marinated with the Helsinki strategy / IT / media / startup scene for years and years and has a unique perspective on how things work and how they might work better. He hosts a podcast of his own (which is a lot more popular than this pod, so go check it out here), so the discussion was immediately easy and interesting.
If you need to innovate or navigate the changing competitive landscape in any way, he most probably can help you out - so give him a call.
Muru, the restaurant itself, is pretty high up on the Top 50 list position, as it is merited with position 15.
We went for the 4 course menu which changes pretty much everyday. Today’s course was whitefish starter, iberico ham main course, cheese and jam topped off with an amazing dessert that had rhubarb and Tuulihattu (yes, that same thing Plein served).
Awesome quality food, reasonably priced and top value. It is easy to recommend this place for someone who wants to enjoy “good food” in a relaxed atmosphere.
Henri Alen shares his founding story for this restaurant at the beginning of Episode. Enjoy (we certainly did!)!
