Season's best: Treat your taste buds at St. George
What’s not to love about the wonderful tastes of spring? Firm favourites meet new acquaintances – spring is on everyone’s lips. Taste these four seasonal treats at St. George!
1. Crème de la bun
Who could resist the sweet temptation of the Finnish sledging day bun, filled with cream and – oh, should it be jam or marzipan? Tuck in and join the debating locals at St. George Bakery.
St. George Bakery is open every day from 8 am till 6 pm. Address: Yrjönkatu 13, Helsinki.
2. Psst… what’s in the octopus?
The octopus of Restaurant Andrea is the talk of the town. What’s the secret behind its heavenly taste? Well… it’s a secret. It’s seasoned with sumac, Andrea’s unique Yeniceri spice mix, and pomegranate molasses.
3. Just say jar at our bar
Feeling peckish? Try one of the jars at Wintergarden. They’re perfect for starters, cocktail snacks, or light bites – for any occasion, in fact. From beetroot pesto to bird’s liver parfait, the jars are available via our room service too.
4. I did it MaiWeiWei
Raise a toast to a life well lived, Ai WeiWei and Frank Sinatra at Wintergarden.
Sing it: I’ve lived a life that’s full, I’ve travelled each and every highway. And more, much more than this, I’ll have another MaiWeiWei. Try our signature cocktails at Wintergarden’s bar.
