Friends & Brgrs
My favorite in Helsinki.
I admit, burgers and fries are not exactly healthy, but they are very tasty!
The burgers who are served here are of high quality and you have a lot of choice. Every month there is also a burger of the month (during the Christmas period was for me a reindeer burger – BEST BURGER I EVER HAD!).
You can choose to only eat the burger, or immediately make a meal of it with french fries and a drink included.
For one hamburger, you’ll pay anything between €8 and €10. And a menu will cost you €12,5.
Are you -just like- always hungry and up for some more food? Add an extra hamburger between your sandwich for only € 3 extra.
Definitely also try the aioli or friends mayonnaise, it’s quite tasy and it only costs €1 extra.
Right next to Friends and brgrs you can find Fafa’s, short for Falafels.
In addition to a falafel sandwich you will also find many other sandwich wraps that you can fill with chicken, vegetarian options and more.
For a wrap you pay €10 or a little more or less. There are also some small snacks that cost €5 per piece.
The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the fast serving time makes it easy to grab a quick bite if you’re in a hurry.
Just like in Tallinn, I also went to the Vapiano chain in this city
This Italian restaurant chain offers delicious pastas, pizzas, risottos and more food and all of it is directly prepared in front of you. After a look at the extensive menu you can walk to one of the cooks, whom prepare your dish right there on the spot.
Farm-fresh, tasty and cheap!
Cafe bar 9
Slightly more expensive but still in the cheaper range for Helsinki is Cafe bar 9.
It takes about five minutes of walking from the city center. This bar doesn’t appear immediately super cozy, but the longer you’re there, the better you’ll like it.
Café bar 9 is best known for its pastas and noodles, but the hamburgers are certainly not wrong either.
For my burger with fried (salty!) potatoes I paid almost €17, but for pasta, you pay only €10. Drinks are quite pricey, but there is free tap water for those who wish.
Of course, you don’t have to go to a restaurant as you can also head to McDonalds, Burger King or Subway. While you’re there, you can also try Hesburger, a Finnish hamburger chain. On average you pay €8 to €10 for a menu in these fast food restaurants.
