More properly called a soup shop than a restaurant, Tapaste is a local secret you don t want to miss. With only two small, communal tables and a counter tucked into a stand in Hakaniemi Market Hall, this operation is tiny, charming, and mouth-wateringly good. Three soups (generally one fish, one meat, and one vegetarian; EUR5-7.50) are prepared daily, and served speedily with hearty Finnish bread and EUR1 beers. For a real glimpse of Helsinki life, snag a seat at the counter and enjoy the stream of shoppers and sellers over a bowl of salmon soup.
