“Supersize me” alla Finlandese

"Supersize me" alla Finlandese

I thought I’d say a few words on Finnish fast food…

Of course they’ve got Macdonalds here as well. Some even like it, haha 😀
But not during the big market time. No-no-no (in poor Amy’s voice).
When and if you’re in a market in some Finnish town you should go eat muikku! It’s sold in very special places/tents marked as follows:

Muikku!!!

Muikku!!!

So, what is it??


Muikku stands for the vendace (Coregonus albula). A typical Northern European fish.

-Yes, two muikkus for us, and go easy on potatoes!

They fry the fish in oil in deep steel trays right before your eyes. Looks disgusting I must say. Yet the result is tasty… same as any other kind of junk food 🙂

Finnish fast food yeah

Tastes do differ. I’d prefer a good plateful of Kainuulainen kalakeitto (fish soup of Kainuu) instead 😉
