The magic of Lapland in the heart of Helsinki
At the Lappish restaurant Saaga you will find a slice of the rugged nature and magic atmosphere of Lapland. We also bring the enchantment of Lapland to our guests in our service, interior decor and table settings, as well is in our food. The interior decor has the touch of Lappish artists and artisans. Dishes served on wooden platters, in kuksa wooden mugs, cast iron pots and ice provide a feast for the eye, as well as for the tongue.
Genuine northern flavours at their best
The pristine environment of the North creates an excellent place for wildlife and flora to flourish, so we use only pure Lappish and Finnish natural products whenever we can. We co-operate with several small producers to guarantee the good quality and specialized ingredients. The menu offers northern delicacies like reindeer and bear, Arctic char and salmon, Lappish cheese, mushrooms as well as cloudberries and cranberries. Main courses include e.g. Glow-fried Arctic char served on a wooden plank, Rump steak of reindeer on a skewer and the classic "Hungry like a wolf" dish with reindeer and elk. The dessert menu includes beautiful and tasty delicacies such as Lappish cheese in a cast iron pan, Iced cranberries in an ice bowl and Flambéed buttermilk pancakes.
Welcome to experience the enchantment of Lapland - Buresboahtin!
