Restaurant Riemu's street food buffet
This summer, we open the new Restaurant Riemu (riemu in English means joy), located next to the Taikaranta play area. How about Asian-style sweet and sour chicken, a tuna-and-cream-cheese baked potato, or slow cooker barbeque pork? For vegetarians, Riemu offers delicious tofu stew and a salad buffet with a wide variety of fresh vegetables. The street food buffet in Restaurant Riemu is the first of its kind in Särkänniemi. The inspiration for the buffet’s recipes comes from cuisines all around the world.
The restaurant caters particularly to the preferences of the youngest in the family. With them especially in mind, the food is not cooked too spicy. In addition to more exotic tastes, Riemu also offers familiar foods such as potato wedges and rice as well as vegetables in easy, finger food sized bites.
Swing Carousel is a family favourite
Our new ride, Swing Carousel, is decorated with colourful flower paintings and was manufactured in the Preston and Barbier carousel factory in Italy. The ride is located next to Pizzeria Pelle Pizza Buffet, but is themed after the atmosphere, flowers and colourfulness of the Taikaranta play area.
The Swing Carousel is open to guests who are at least 100 centimetres tall. A special new feature of the new Swing Carousel are benches that seat two people. During the ride, the seats rise up to 13.9 metres.
