It’s Tuesday once more, time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is F and I choose the theme Food in Finland.

Food in Finland

When my good friend, Professor Tuting Hernandez and I were in Finland a year ago to attend a conference in Helsinki, there was this charming little bistro close to our hotel that we would frequent. The food is fabulous, the service is wonderful, the entire vibe of the place is rustic, homey, and one that you would definitely return to again and again. We must have gone there more than three times in our six-day stay in Helsinki. The place is called Cafe Amico and here are some photographs from that lovely place.

My good friend, Tuting Hernandez, with the beautiful lady who brought us our fantabulous food.

“And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:

Your seeds shall live in my body,
And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,
And your fragrance shall be my breath,
And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons.” 
― Khalil Gibran

Naturally I had to take a photo with the owner/manager of this restaurant.

“I know the look of an apple that is roasting and sizzling on the hearth on a winter’s evening, and I know the comfort that comes of eating it hot, along with some sugar and a drench of cream… I know how the nuts taken in conjunction with winter apples, cider, and doughnuts, make old people’s tales and old jokes sound fresh and crisp and enchanting.” 
― Mark Twain

  2. “Fate is like a strange, unpopular restaurant
    filled with odd little waiters

    you amused me with this quotation,
    bringing back some memories to me:
    once my daughter said to me in Madrid:
    “Let’s visit a famous old time restaurant,
    organized by two very old brothers,
    they are looking like twins of your father Erwin R.I.P.
    - and they are serving only bad meals,
    but with the prices from 1933…”

  3. looks lovely, such happy people and delicious looking food … two of the delights of life thanks myra!

  4. I’ll take a plate of that pasta! Yum!!
