The new menu was inspired by flavours from the Åland Islands.
For starters, there is Finnish cold-smoked whitefish and rainbow trout with cucumber and horseradish mousse.
The main course consists of organic Åland lamb, seasoned with juniper and served with roasted onion and wild garlic.
All this is topped off with a portion of baked apples, salted caramel and lingonberry ice cream.
The Helsinki Menu, part of the “Makujen Suomi” concept, inspires restaurants to create menus that are characteristic of their restaurant’s particular cities or provinces, and to pay particular attention to seasonal goods delivered with a unique local flavour.
The new Helsinki Menu will be available at the Fly Inn Restaurant & Deli as of 20 October.
Menu designed by world-class top chef
The new Helsinki Menu of the Fly Inn Restaurant & Deli was designed by top chef Matti Jämsen.
The Helsinki Menu provides pure flavours straight from Finnish nature. Bon appétit! – Matti Jämsen
Jämsen has represented Finland twice at the world chef championships in Bocuse d’Or and was selected as the fourth-best chef in the world this year.
This year, he was also selected as the “Kokkien Kokki” (“the Chef of Chefs”). The selection was made by leading Finnish chefs.
