Sushi me up!

Helsinki, 13 degrees

As I told you some time ago, I had my appointment with the hairdresser on Saturday. Since my former hairdresser stopped working at my regular hair saloon Dahlia, I decided to try another hairdresser at the same saloon. I'm not sure if I'm satisfied with the result. What do you think?


Of course it's lighter than before, and maybe looks healthier since it has got a new cut and all...



but somehow I'm not completely convinced that the new hairdresser understood what I was after...now I'm thinking about maybe coloring it a bit darker..I don't know..maybe I'm used to making big chances at the hairdresser and now I was disappointed when the change was so small for the price of 150€!



In addition, on Saturday I had a sushi evening with three of my dearest friends. It was the first time for three of us, only one of us had made sushi by herself before. I'm quite proud of the result, the sushi was so good! We made some shrimp and salmon nigiris and some maki rolls with cucumber, carrots, salmon and mayonnaise. Have you tried making sushi at home?



Today I had some interesting sushi with a Finnish twist. At the Sushibar at Uudenmaankatu I got to try some of the restaurant's new products and combine them to some delicious organic and non organic wines. The restaurant recently decided to stop serving tuna due to ethical reasons and therefore it has introduced some new products. This was the first time I tried combining sushi with wine, but it definately worked!

Sushibar has focused on bringing something new to Helsinki. Not only copying sushi from Japan but offering sushi with some Finnish feeling. This can be seen in the furniture which is from Artek and the dishes used in the restaurant which are from Marimekko. I like the harmonic style!


The most interesting sushi I tried today were the ones with Baltic Herring and Aura, a Finnish blue cheese. Talk about taking sushi to a new, Finnish level! Great innovative thinking, and yum delicious!
