In Helsinki, you need to know the good places, and it takes a bit of an effort to find them out.

Miki Kuusi is the CEO of the tech company Wolt and one of the founders of the start-up event Slush. Kuusi was born and grew up in Helsinki. He has lived in many different corners of the city: Pitäjänmäki, Töölö, Kamppi, Roihuvuori, Kallio, Punavuori, and now in Ullanlinna. 

Miki Kuusi comes from a family passionate about food. His grandmother's recipes were cherished keepsakes. "I grew up into a thinking that a bad day can be salvaged by good food", he says. Miki Kuusi's Helsinki is dotted with restaurants and cafés that he visits on a daily basis. His home meals are usually limited to breakfast, if even that.

Kuusi loves exploring the city's best restaurants and is always eager to try out a new recommendation from food blogs. Nowadays, Kuusi makes pilgrimages to all sides of town to check out promising cafés and restaurants.

"In Helsinki, you need to know the good places, and it takes a bit of an effort to find them out", says Kuusi. 

Miki Kuusi's theme for his list is "Helsinki in a day". Kuusi often hosts international guests who only have 24 hours at their disposal. Kuusi keeps a foolproof list of his favourite places to visit and shares it willingly.
