Flow Festival is known for more than music; it’s also about food – and there’s also plenty for vegetarians to enjoy. But you don’t have to wait for the festival weekend, since almost all the dishes we sample here are on offer all year round in Helsinki.
The Flow Festival of music and urban culture, held every August in Helsinki, is a great party for foodies, including vegetarians and vegans. You can enjoy these dishes all year round in the restaurants and cafés of Helsinki.
One of the first carbon-neutral festivals in the world, Flow encourages the restaurants serving at the event to make tasty stuff for not only meat-eaters, but also vegetarians and vegans, and to use environmentally sound ingredients from local farms.
Apart from a remarkably large choice of vegetarian food, vegans will also be pleased to discover that they can get their coffee with oat milk that was developed specially for that purpose.
We tried the most intriguing vegetarian dishes at the festival. It has to be said that everyone, not just the vegetarians, liked this food..
Soi Soi has some of the best burgers in the city, made with tofu, seitan and soya and hemp steaks. They taste so good that you can live with the service, which is not the fastest – although very sweet. Seitan and Soi Soi’s homemade mayonnaise will have you licking your fingers.
