At Kustaankatu 7, just off Kallio’s famous Vaasankatu, is this small and cozy Embassy of Eastern Cuisine called Pelmenit.
The chef ran to the kitchen to put on a clean uniform for the photo and proudly displayed the speciality of the place. He told me the food in Pelmenit is a bit Russian, a bit Ukrainian, a bit Finnish and a bit Jewish. For 5-6€ you can get a plateful of pelmeni (dumplings) or a big bowl of thick, delicious borscht (Ukrainian style accoding to my knowledge). I also recommend the vegetarian bliny.
