Dinner at Scandic Grand Marina

Blinis as starter
It is can be very easy and tempting to eat at the hotel, when you are travelling and it is -15'C outside and snow everywhere. But sometimes you are better off putting on your polar outfit and get outside to find a restaurant in the neighbourhood.

Well, I did the first part during a recent business trip to Helsinki = eating at the hotel !!!

As starter I was served blinis with salmon and sour cream. I could not complain about the size of the starter, however I would have preferred the blinis to be thinner instead of being the size of Camembert size !!!

As main course I had selected pasta with mushrooms, which was another big size portion being to fatty for my preference. 

The best part of the meal turned to be the dessert, where I had selected pear pie with marzipan having a more appealing look being served together with fresh fruit.

I ended to with paying approx 45 € for the food, 1 glass of white wine and 1 cup tea. I will give this meal 2 stars, as I think the overall quality in form of taste and texture has plenty of room for improvement. No complaints on the serving sizes, which easily could feed two persons.
