Brasserie Kämp, Helsinki

Traveling is all about sightseeing, shopping, food and experiences. For me, most importantly would be the food! If the food was terrible, I think it would make the whole experience less enjoyable. Ok there has been some trips where I have done absolutely no research on food but I have managed to find little restaurant gems or markets that serve awesome snacks! Regardless, ‘The Mother’ knows that it has to some how revolve around food! Brasserie Kamp can be found on the main shopping drag of Helsinki. It is part of the Hotel Kamp and it has been open and serving breakfast, lunch, dinner for 100 years. The restaurant was a little more fancier than I thought but then again I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Uncle pointed out on instagram that someone had gone here to have a burger. Judging from the picture, the burger looked sensational so I had to go and try it. We started with some bread, oddly Dragon loved rye and would not stop eating it.

The lunch menu was vast but I couldn’t go past the Kamp burger – 140g grilled fillet of beef, chipotle and bacon dressing, tomato, caramelised onions, cheddar, lettuce served with a side of french fries! At 33 Euros it wasn’t a cheap burger so I had HIGH expectations! It did not disappoint, the beef patty was tender, the bun soft and it had the right amount of salad and sauces!  And the chips were a wonderful addition.

‘The Mother’ encouraged me to try the sautéed reindeer meat with potato puree, lingonberries and fried onions with juniper berries. Now I had no idea what to expect. ‘The Mother’ had eaten reindeer prior to meeting me and said that it was tasty! I kind of felt sorry for poor little rudolf! The reindeer meat were a little gamey for my liking – it was tender but I didn’t like the after taste, even eaten with the ligonberries. The potato puree however, LOVED! Creamy and sinful!

There’s also a kids menu which is awesome. Dragon had some pasta and chicken which she loved. Service was friendly and food came out relatively quickly. ‘The Mother’ wanted to come back again for the burger but I managed to persuade him to try other restaurants!
