On the first night in a new city, you want to eat something local and traditional. In Helsinki, it doesn’t get much more local and traditional than Sea Horse. This old-school, low key dining room doesn’t scream glamour but the food is a brilliant, unpretentious introduction to Finnish culinary stalwarts. Try the tantalising combination of crispy fried herring, sweet, tart beetroot and (that omnipresent Finnish side dish), perfect, creamy mashed potatoes.
