Meze Point, Helsinki, Finland

Mikonkatu 8, Tel. +358-(0)9 6222 625

This middle-eastern restaurant in the pedestrian zone of Mikonkatu is one of our favourites for a healthy and tasteful during-the-week dinner. The interiour is very loungy, the service is friendly and the food is great. The only downside is that the kitchen is sometimes quite slow.

We usually go for the ”full meze” (19.50€ pP, min. 2 Persons), which is a set of nine small meze (such as hummous, tabbouleh, böreks, tsatsiki-type yoghurt sauce, deep fried cheese etc.), and three types of grilled meat: a beef skewer, a chicken skewer, and a lamb köfte. Of course you can also choose from the a la carte list, which, in addition to the single meze, features a couple of salads, dishes from the grill, and a couple of traditional main dishes. If you are very hugry (or greedy), you might want to go for a baklava or the yoghurt with honey and pistachios as dessert.

The wine list is fairly limited, but has a couple of wines that go well with the middle east seasoning.

During lunchtime Meze Point offers a lunch buffet, and a small meze plate, for 8.40€ each.
