The traditional Eastern-Finnish-style meat pastry (3.80 EUR) is number one among Finnish marketplace delicacies. A filling of minced meat and rice is baked into a white dough.

The beetroot risotto (17.00 EUR) gives a gourmet twist to a popular root vegetable: beetroot is roasted in thyme and Werneri goat's cheese from the Kolattu cheese factory. This dish, representing contemporary Finnish cuisine, gives a traditional Mediterranean meal a Northern touch with Finnish beets and locally produced cheese.
