Food tip for Helsinki, Finland

Hotel Torni's restaurant in Helsinki has made a simple thing into fantastic treat both for locals and tourists. You can order a fabulous snack to go with your beer: new season potatoes. Prices 3 and 6 Euros, served in a kettle with dill and butter.

Hurry up, the summer in Helsinki is almost over...!

- 65  boiled eggs in 6 min 40 seconds by Sonya Thomas
