Info in English

Hi and welcome to my finnish language foodblog.
I know that nowadays Google translator is invented and used :) Still i put up this little summary of my pages in English. You get a translation option for example automatically by using Google Chrome as a browser. In my personal experiences i have found that translation works best in the way that you translate Finnish to English and read it there. If you try straight transfer for example Finnish to Dutch, the result might be almost useless and very hard to read and understand.

I am living in Jyväskylä (pop 130k.), MiddleFinland, Finland (pop. 5m+). In the blog i usually write about restaurant critic, foodproduct reviews and food recipes.

Restaurant critic

I write Jyväskylä area restaurant critics. Are you looking for lunch, restaurant, pizza in Jyväskylä area? I have over 200 restaurant reviews atm in my blog. I usully write about lunchtime options in the pricerange of 6-10 euros. I try to find local most interresting places. Just those places which are affordable, and offering good or excellent food. They can be offering Finnish style "homefood" or something else. In the other hand i have got a lot of Pizza and Kebab reviews also. You can get a decent pizza or kebab at the pricerange of 5.5 - 8.5 euros. You can find backround of the pointsystem here, but the row "Kokonaisarvio" is most important. 60-69 fills but not thrills, 70-79 is basic good, 80-90 is more than hoped for, and 90+ excellent.

You can find the link of the Jyväskylä area restaurants here, and the pizza - Kebab -place here. All reviews are listed in here under section "Ravintolaopas" - restaurant quide. They are divided by genre and location.
