Helsinki Fried Pike meets Laboratory!
Helsinki Fried Pike pops up at the courtyard of Laboratory on the upcoming Restaurant Day, Saturday 19th. The concept is simple: fish’n'chips with a Finnish twist.
– Pike is delicious, organic and local food. The meat is lo-fat, so a little bit of frying makes it even more yummy, explains fish-a-holic Pekka Toivonen, one of faces behind HFP.
– Everybody loves junk food, but this one’s actually not junk at all, but fast food made out of best possible ingredients, adds campaign office manager Hanna Karppinen.
Fast food becomes slow food, as the fishing takes its time, as well as all the handmade preparing of the food.
– We’ve been reeling in every gram by ourselves. For the potato receipe, we tried out almost every cultivar, and even the mayo will be homemade, says Pekka.
Helsinki Fried Pike will be open on Saturday from 5 pm on and closes down after 100 meals is sold. The meal costs 8 euros, including a Laitila’s Sitruunasooda softdrink.
