In Helsinki, foodies eat at Streat.

Street food is alive and well in Helsinki. Not only is the city the home of the now global Restaurant Day phenomenon, this week it also hosted the second Streat Helsinki, a celebration of street food and its role in the city.

Over the weekend, the event culminated in 64 food trucks and street kitchens setting up shop by the Senate Square and harbour, bringing everything from oysters to moose to the city’s foodies. After a mouth-watering tour around the festival area (in an unfortunately cold wind), I opted for a pike and crayfish slider with a Laitilan blood orange soda courtesy of Liesikiesi¬†. Definitely a good choice. But with another 63 options, I may have to go back tomorrow… You should too!
