    FISH KIOSK of Kustavi Finland / Kustavin kalakioski

    Blaze salmon / Finnish " Loimu lohi"
    This kind of food kiosk you`ll account by "fingers" to find here in this area, so special this is.
    When the cave -dwellers primitive man invent fire and start the cooking, perhaps this blaze salmon could be first ones which he prepared to eat.

    Exactly the same methods are still in use. Fire, salt and most used fish is salmon.

    Kustavi is famous municipality with salmons.

    Come, see, taste and have the secret making recipe here by watching .
    Making isn´t so easy you believe, but simple and delicious food is in your hand touch.

    Favorite Dish: 1. Blaze salmon = loimulohi
    2. Smoked white fish = savusiika
    3. Smoked salmon= savulohi
    4. Cold smoked salmon = kylmäsavulohi

    When I stop here and have my warm fish in hand Ill remember with burning longing Albanian´s Lake Ohrid´s trout.

    Finnish "home cuisine" is something that Finns also don't know", but if I´ve to compare somewhere " here could be like French country food added to archipelago province".
    Here most bread are home made and specialities. You´ll fine here random also great Finnish wild berries among salad table in your own choice.
    And what´s price, if somebody tell me that Finnish lunch will cost with starter, main course and different dessert together 5 euro, who believes. Here this true and this is also secret for this restaurants favourite for local peoples that they have place to enjoy their daily lunch.
    Yesterday (11 th of April 2007) when I had my lunch I supposed to had dark bread in my small plate this could be famous "archipelgo dark bread", but not. This was owner made by her own hands "cowered bread" which secret in receipt didn´t know either present been sales person.
    I can guarantee this bread was excellent.
    This happened random and this bread isn´t in every day´s menu.
    You can also buy here this home made Finnish bread.

    Favorite Dish: Daily menu start from 11 am-

    Take off table with your own choice, so I collected :

    started salad:
    - mixed salad added , pickled cucumber, vinegar beet and cow berry jam

    main course:
    boiled potatoes and sausage sauce ( one of Finn´s top favorite) also choice available traditional peas soup, which the Finnish army trust in every Thursdays weekly

    - pan cake with strawberry and raspberry jam

    The menu here will change and you ll find also: meat, casseroles, herring,salmon etc made with the most traditional Finnish ways which people here like.
