The young and creative Filipino chefs of Paisano
5 February 2020, Helsinki – Filipino cuisine continues to brighten the Helsinki restaurant scene! Paisano opened last year in Helsinki centre with a bang , with creations inspired by dishes from all over the Philippines, matched with creative cocktails featuring intense Filipino flavors. Helsinki showed its delight by recognizing Paisano’s owners-cum-chefs as one of 2019 entrepreneurs of the year , naming Paisano as one of the best new restaurants in 2019, and awarding Paisano’s Bar as the Best for 2019.
Heaps of praises from Paisano’s clientele are found in Trip Advisor, Google and other online reviews. Quoted in Paisano’s website www.paisano.fi , one client said “The restauranteurs of Pobre elevate filipino flavours to a new level in Paisano.” Paisano is another creative idea from the Filipino owners cum chefs of the successful Pobre Filipino in Helsinki’s Kamppi shopping mall. Paisano is in Korkeavuorenkatu 45, Helsinki, a few steps from Helsinki’s famous Esplanadi Park.
