A taste of Asia at Gaijin

One of my all time favorite restaurants in Helsinki is for sure Farang. Fortunately the owners of this lovely place also have two other restaurants in the city one of which is Gaijin.
Gaijin follows Farang's footsteps a bit, but is still a completely different experience after all. Their menu takes you to North Asia and also manages to surprise with a unique combination of tastes and flavors.The interior is more cozy and intimate then what you might know from Farang.

I would highly recommend a tasting menu here as well. Those menus of around eight to ten small dishes will make your taste buds celebrate. 


Enjoy some Soft Shell Crab with apple and fennel, flavored with honey, mirin and hazelnut.


And get carried away by the tenderness and taste of the Baby Back Pork Ribs.

Gaijin also has really nice cocktails. You should consider having one as an aperitif.

Prices are in the same range at Farang. But the money you pay definitely pays off. Don't forget to make a reservation in advance!
