Street food is a rising trend in Helsinki as the great success of the Streat Helsinki street food festival organized last March well demonstrated. One good place to pick up tasty street food in the centre of Helsinki is Cholo. This tiny Mexican place offers burritos and tacos at Lönnrotinkatu 9. And this time, when I say Mexican I really mean it! There are many restaurants pretending to offer Mexican food, but Cholo actually does that. The place has an authentic feeling and taste thanks to the Mexican guys working hard behind the bar taking orders in English but chatting in Spanish. This is not a place for fine dining – here you get a huge burrito with less than 10 euros and you eat it by hands!
