At the Ravintola Kamome (Restaurant Kamome) we serve fresh, handmade healthy food with a deep taste, mostly out of seasonal products from around the region on the one hand and on the other hand with original Japanese products.
When Mr. Ogawa took over this restaurant in 2015 he decided to call it Ravintola Kamome, and bring it back more to a restaurant (ravintola) than a café, with new design and a new menu.
He became quickly aware that this should be a restaurant working with the best, natural, locally sourced ingredients, exclusively handcrafted into good tasting and beautiful dishes.
He traveled through Finland and Estonia, visited producers, farmers, gardeners, fishermen and butchers in order to find the best products for Kamome and its guests. Gradually, they built up a special network of suppliers and partners who provide Kamome with quality ingredients.
These gorgeous ingredients, such as salmon, muikku or herring, potatoes, vegetables, herbs… are simply processed in Kamome with great simplicity and high craftsmanship.
The product is at the center and is merely enhanced by the chefs.
Our inspiration comes on the one hand from nature and its rhythm, and on the other hand from the Finnish-Nordic and Japanese culinary traditions, the philosophy of Japanese cuisine, “Washoku”, where less is more and focus on the essentials: the beauty of the ingredients and their original flavor.
It will be a pleasure for us to meet you at Ravintola Kamome and serve you our nice food.
