Beach house kitchen - ruokablogin ja Lumo Lifestylen bloggaajat odottavat innoissaan Taste of Helsinkiä. Heli-Hannele on innoissaan oman kulmakuppilansa, Bistro O matin, mukanaolosta. Tuuli kertoo Restaurant Grönin kiinnostavan! Hänen miehensä sen sijaan taitaa suunnata ensimmäisenä Tocan pisteelle, sillä sieltä saa yhtä ihanaa ruokaa kuin kotoa 😉 ...

Näitä leidejä kiinnostaa erityisesti Taste of Helsingin gluteeniton tarjonta.
Syötävän hyvä -blogin Lotta odottaa Restaurant Grönin kasvis fine diningia. Viiskulman Ullaa kiinnostaa myös Grön, mutta lisäksi hän pohtii erityisruokavalioiden huomioimista tapahtumassa. Aamukahvilla -blogin Henriikka sanoo odottavansa yllättäviä yhdistelmiä ja riittävästi mausteita. Hän on myös iloinen Tallinnan Restoran Ö:n ja Tampereen Ravintola Hella & Huoneen mukanaolosta.

Tuhat seuraajaa Instagramissa yhden tykkääjän päässä! Oletko sinä tuhannes?
