The place to spend your Saturdays
Yep, you guessed it, Mami means Mommy, and locals have crowned her the best-loved restaurant in Turku many times. Mami has a lovely location in the heart of Old Turku across the river from the cathedral. Saturday afternoons at Mami embody the spirit of the place with their special menu for shoppers on their way back from the market. Today it is comprised of a hearty soup, fried farmed rainbow trout and a sorbet. We choose the à la carte and eat instead a starter of pressed veal held together with strips of bacon and served with Cumberland sauce, and crème fraîche with mustard. It’s good, hearty and well balanced. For the main course we order cod from the North Sea. It has a nice exterior and consistency, and comes with salsify and mashed potatoes. A glass of German sauvignon blanc is a good match. The sorbet from the shoppers’ menu completes the meal. It is made of raspberries and topped with pears. The service is so amiable that it is easy to agree with local opinion...
