Monocle 24 “The Menu” features a new Helsinki restaurant that’s pushing the boundaries in sourcing local ingredients.
VILLD – Finland’s first vegan fine-dining restaurant. Known as Ossi Paloneva’s pop up restaurant concept and web series, VILLD opened a permanent restaurant in November 2019 in Harju, Helsinki (Helsinginkatu 21).
VILLD’s rotating five-course vegan menu is made up of wildly collected wild ingredients. In VILLD’s kitchen, roots, berries, plants, mushrooms, seeds and edible flowers are transformed into pure and strong experiences, including smoking, fermentation, drying and germination.
