Restaurant Day

Ever thought about having your own restaurant or wondered what the life of a chef is like? Do you know someone who cooks so well that they should have their own food let-out? Do you have great bravura recipes that you want to share with others? Or do you just want to show off your cooking skills? The Finland originated Restaurant Day is exactly the chance you have been looking for.

Restaurant Day is the world’s largest food carnival, and a movement, that allows anyone to set up a restaurant, a café, or a bar. Pop-up restaurants are opened on four days a year, and wherever people wish to have them: homes, street corners, parks, inner yards, beaches, and even at offices. So far, over 100,000 people have catered 3 million customers in more than 27,000 restaurants, in 75 countries.

Eat at a pop-up restaurant

At http://beta.njomnjom.com you can search for a location worldwide, and see exactly where, when, and what kind of restaurants will be opened. Korean bibimbap in central Helsinki? Sure, why not. Columbian snacks in Turku? Yes please. Eritrean-Ethiopian dinner in the northern Oulu? Count me in! In Finland, the popularity of the Restaurant Day is enormous, and hundreds of places are set up. Don’t worry if you can’t make it to Finland, though! The event is growing year by year, and has gone international. Restaurant Day is celebrated at multiple counties in Europe, and you can find pop-up restaurants even in Russia, Canada, USA, and Morocco!

People participate in the Restaurant Day to share the enjoyment and not to make profit – that’s why the portions are more often than not very affordable! It is a fun way to try new things even on a budget. You can check out our blog post about other money saving tips in Finland from here.

Set up your own restaurant

To participate in the Restaurant Day, all you need to do is sign up for the event in http://www.restaurantday.org/en/. To make the most out of the experience you should prepare well! Pancakes and strawberries sold from a window to by passers? Fish and chips on a pier? A three-course meal in your living room? A fun concept will draw in customers. However, rather than going for the most exotic idea you can come up with, think about in what kind of a place you would like to eat at, and what would be catered there. Put some thought in the location of the restaurant, too. In the summer parks, street corners and inner yards are popular among people, but in case of a rainy or cold weather, your own home can be an easy and comfortable solution.
