During a recent visit to Helsinki I decided to try out lunch at Zucchini.
Nothing in the place was is in English (except a “watch your step” sign in a doorway between seating areas), but the friendly guy working the counter explained to me what the daily special was. As far as I can tell, the main entree of the day might be the only entree of the day. On the day I visited, the starter was some kind of delicious, filling Mexican bean soup and then the main entree was a baked spaghetti dish (almost a faux lasagna) with broccoli in cream on the side along with a little salad. As soon as we were done with the big bowl of soup, the server came along and gave us our main plates. There was also a big basket of bread by the counter from which I took a few small pieces of bread to go with the soup.
I didn’t get to try the freshly mixed juices but they also had tap water (free, of course), bottled water and some interesting looking non-major-label / non-corporate-looking soft drinks in the cooler by the door.
The total cost of the meal for two people was 22€.
The only downside to here was that it’s communal tables, as there’s not enough space to sit in this small space. This was a wee bit awkward because we didn’t want to make our out-of-place American-ness too obvious to the other people sitting next to us.
If I get more time in Helsinki, I’d definitely come here again.
