I really didn’t eat much during the two nights I was here in Helsinki. During the first night, I was jetlagged and could not find anything to eat that was open late at night. Two months ago, I wrote Lessons I Learned From Visiting Four Different Countries in Four Days which included Helsinki. I wrote how expensive food this is a guide on pretty much how to eat for less in Helsinki.

For example, a beer can cost 4.90 euros and a chicken burrito for a whopping 12.4 euros! Salmon soup can be had for 9.2 euros. If you’re thinking what I’m thinking, these are highway robbery prices and that’s exactly what most restaurant establishments charge.
However, there are dining alternatives such as kebabs, pizza, and even Subway.
Many Finns also express outrage for the high costs and many of them cook at home. If you visit supermarkets, you can find packaged sandwiches for less than 2 euros which is a bargain.
Street food is also cheap and will cost 3 euros or under.
Finnish sweet bread is also for sale at many bakeries and vendors throughout Helsinki.
You can buy delicious gelato from Movenpick from beneath the Stockmann retail shopping center.
I had some amazing Baltic Herring at the Baltic Herring Festival.
The best deal to be had in terms of food has got to be at a buffet. There are pizza buffets and it includes unlimited helpings of pizza, salad, and soup. It’s the best bang for your buck in Helsinki for 7.90 euros.
Next time I visit Helsinki, I will be sure to visit proper sit down restaurants at the right time of day to enjoy Finnish cuisine.
