The Italian Option at Spaghetteria
At Spaghetteria the focus shifts from North America to the Mediterranean, and Italy in particular. Specialising in spaghetti dishes, there are also filling salads and delicious pizza on offer. There are four selections on the Antipasti menu for snacking or simply enjoying with wine, no less than ten different ways to have spaghetti, six choices for pizza, and another six options on the salad menu.
At Spaghetteria, the bread is offered warm, with olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. All the spaghetti and salad dishes are available for kids (half size, half price!), as well as a piccolo pizza. Everything on the menu is also available to take away.
Finnish Fast Food at Hesburger
Frequent visitors to Finland will have realised that Hesburger is a permanent fixture in the Finnish fast-food world, with restaurants right across the country. The Finnish, family-owned business had very humble beginnings, developing from a single grill stand in Naantali to the national staple it has become today.
In order to minimise its carbon footprint, Hesburger operates as energy-efficiently as possible, producing its own renewable energy, optimising deliveries, recycling materials and actively developing more environmentally-friendly packaging materials and methods. Their product range includes items whose production and service carbon footprint is fully compensated by participating in climate change prevention projects.
The menu is as one would expect in a fast-food restaurant, with the added bonus of having a lot more options than usual. There are 11 ways to have a burger, 3 types of tortilla, 2 types of toastie, a selection of 6 salads, as well as nuggets, onion rings, and soy fingers, with over a dozen dips and sauces to go along with them. There is also a kids menu. For those with a sweet tooth, or just looking for something refreshing to drink, Hesburger provides a choice of six different smoothies and fruities, and another five different milkshakes, as well as a selection of 15 different desserts.
Mexican Street Food at Chilitos
Next door, Chilitos brings all the zest of Mexican Street Food indoors. Just as a street food stand specialises in just a few dishes, so too does Chilitos. Here, the star is the burrito, and there are four to choose from – bbq, chilli sin carne, chipotle chicken (also offered in a quesadilla), and a kid’s burrito. Their range also includes hot dogs and burgers with a Mexican twist; the Mexican & Chilito dogs, and the Hidalgo & Mexican burgers. And of course, there are nachos with guacamole and salsa.
