09 Nov Om Nam
A yogi’s hang-out, Om Nam sits across Helsingin Astanga Joogakoulu and serves Ahimsa, (none-violence) on a plate.
I got to sample their weekend brunch specials and I was delighted to try a rich but still fresh take on chickpea-based omelette. The soy-feta added so much creaminess to the batter, the sunflower seeds made for good crunch and the surprise addition of fresh cranberries was a welcome tanginess that complimented the earthy flavours of the Spinach and spice of Parsley. The oat-based carrot cake after was richly topped with coconut whipped cream and I really enjoyed the kick of the grated ginger in between.
On Thursdays, lunch is East Indian favourite, Dosa Masala with a special array of seed pastes and freshly made bread. Om Nam also offers a dinner menu and ala carte options that celebrates seasonal, organic, plant-based produce and will be delivering to homes soon.
