Seafood Stand @ Market Square – Helsinki, Finland

After eating at Karl Fazer Café, we walked to the Market Square where vendors sell fresh produce and Finnish souvenirs.

There are also many food stalls selling grilled seafood and meat.

Everything smelled really good and even though we just ate, I had to try this!

We ate at this food stand instead of the others because this one gave free fried fish samples!

We ordered a mix of grilled salmon, fried muikut (tiny fish from Lapland, the northern-most region in Finland), calamari and reindeer meatball. The salmon was grilled just right (very soft) but the calamari was average.  The muikut was very crispy and flavourful.  I requested for a reindeer meatball because its my last Scandic stop and I still haven’t tried reindeer! I know it’s kind of weird eating Rudolph’s relatives… but I have to try it! It tasted just like a regular meatball.
