‘Finnish Restaurant Day’ Returns On 12 May
This relatively new 'Restaurant Day' initiative organised by the Finnish Embassy and Finnagora has already become something of a tradition in Hungary. In 2018 the event profile has been updated and instead of traditional food the organisers will be serving up contemporary Finnish cuisine in the Hungarian capital.

This year the event is organized for the 7th time in the courtyard of the Finnish Embassy in Budapest. Visitors also have a chance to play Finnish mölkky, draw on asphalt, and do some second-hand shopping. Vegans out there will be happy to know that there will be a vegan main course and dessert option... read on for full details. 

FOOD: includes vegan tacos with Härkis which is a fava bean mince that all the vegans, and even meat lovers in Finland love! For dessert you can try one made from crickets(!), vegan surprise dessert and much more.

DRINKS: e.g. lemonade with arctic berries made by the Finnish Embassy chef Niko Tähti, best coffee in town from fekete, refreshing champagne from Varros & Co. and wine from Rejiji Wines.

MUSIC: The best contemporary Finnish music ranging from jazz and folk to electro by DJ Suefo (Mana Mana records).

FULL? Play the curious Finnish game mölkky! Don’t worry, we’ll let you know how it works! Or decorate the asphalt with your drawings and shop Finnish second-hand products.

By participating, you help do some good too. Team Finland donates the proceeds from the event to Napsugár Tagóvoda, a kindergarten for underprivileged children.

Organized by FinnAgora and the Embassy of Finland in cooperation with: TAMK - Tampere University of Applied Sciences, Budapestin Suomi-koulu, fekete, Varros & Co and Rejiji Wines.

TASTE Finland pop up restaurant is a part of the Eleven Tavasz a Bartókon festival organized by Bartók Béla Boulevard.

    Xpat Review: Costes Downtown Biz Lunch

    Just like you, most probably, I find some high-end restaurants a tad stuffy sometimes. You know when you’re not sure whether to have the sparkling or still water without upsetting the waiter. Well rest assured the staff at the sister restaurant of Costes are very easy-going, as well as knowledgeable and prompt, and thankfully the food lives up to the Michelin-starred reputation.
