I love that there are more and more alternatives for the chain burger places, when it comes to 'street food' and fast food, also here in Europe. As summer is making its way over here, more food trucks have come to the street, but also these kiosk type places, where you can get tasty, appetizing, yummy food, either to-go or a sit down meal.
Street Gastro is located in Helsinki, and there you find BBQ sandwiches, with lovely side dishes, and some other alternatives, for a quick lunch or dinner.
I admit, the girl in me, who used to live in North Carolina, did a few cartwheels in my mind, when I looked at the menu - BBQ on this side of the Atlantic is not that common, if you don't make it yourself, folks.
My pork sandwich had apple mustard, coleslaw, cucumber, lettuce, apple, horseradish mayonnaise, cumin yogurt, flat leaf parsley in it, also chili oil was on the table, if I wanted to add to it. The cost is under €10, and it is a full meal, wrapped in a paper. Also, my friend was having the ribs, and loved them.
If you find a pearl of a place in your hometown, or while traveling, where you get a good meal, prepared with the local ingredients, in an affordable price, give it a shout out, cause we need more places like these as a choice to eat out!
