Tampere’s best: Heinätori

Life drove me out of Helsinki all the way to Tampere for a very special lunch.
Talking to Chef Sini right before dessert, I realized some are less prone to the fine-dining frenzy and more inclined to emphasize the exquisite simplicity of good old Finnish cuisine, with a twist.

Like this plate of smoked salmon, mushroom salad and smoked beetroot.
It is called Heinätori’s assortment, and it matched my lunch mood.
I found, or maybe I should say rediscovered, vendace. Here with beetroots in vinegar this time and mashed potatoes.

Even though butter-fried does not exactly represent semplicity by Italian standards, I realized at first bite how much I had been missing this little fish, since my last visit to Joensuu in Karelia.
As dessert, I praise Sini’s ability with chocolate, her cake with crumbs was delicious!
