Ask is a small, intimate restaurant in the Kruununhaka area of Helsinki, not far from the back of Tuomiokirkko.
The restaurant offers 4 or 8 courses. All produce is sourced from small farmers and producers and menus vary according to the availability of ingredients. The beverages are carefully selected to complement the food.
I chose the 4 course menu, but first to the table was the crunchy bread alternative, served with a delicious yoghurt.
You are invited to choose between the 2 main courses then the chefs will select the others which will best suit your choice. I chose the lamb.
An amuse bouche was the next tasty treat to arrive.
One of the chefs brings the food to the table to explain what you are about to eat.
The heavenly bread is baked on the premises every day.
Here are my scrumptious dishes.
Before my dessert was a pre-dessert taste treat.
Then came the apple pancake.
Normally there would be a different wine with each course, but I asked to have just one glass and they happily agreed to this. It was an excellent Umbrian Sangiovese.
Ask seats only 26 people and I would suggest you book ahead. You can do this via the website.
Ask has a Michelin star…well deserved.
