Cheap, dunno, but traditional restaurants would be Kolme kruunua, Seahorse, Elite, Kosmos and Savoy, with the last (three) being more expensive.

Ravintola Tori (ravintola=restaurant)
Address: Punavuorenkatu 2
Recommend meatballs in brandy sauce 14€ (or creamy salmon soup 13€). Not that cheap thou.. but affordable. Non-alcoholic restaurant because property is oened by methodist church.

Hi Anna-Lena. Happy to recommend you some places :-)

- Ravintola Tori (area of Punavuori), order the meatballs with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam. Very traditional Finnish food, great taste and 14€. The whole place is amazing.

- Kauppatori (close to the ferries) is a market every day selling street food kind of. Salmon or Muikku (fish) is traditional and should be a good price

- Cafe Esplanad, amazing for traditional pastries/bakery products. Recommending the sweet blueberry -quarck bakery products, or a cinnamon bun

- There's also a bunch of lovely brunch places you can try like "Moko market" (area of punavuori), at Saturday mornings. You pay a fixed price and can eat all of the lovely food they serve. In a great design environment :-)

Enjoy Helsinki!!

You can find affordable traditional Finnish food at the Kauppatori. It's a market at the foot of the Esplanade Park and right by the main eastern harbor. You will find food vendors selling fresh fruits, vegetables, fish as well as jams, coffee and lunches. There are also stalls for Finnish souveniers.

google " makaroonilaattikko" and make it yourself :) or places like Factory and Weruska might have "home made" lunches in a Finnish style. We do have restaurants like Muru and Lappi ravintola but they are expensive !

Don't know about the traditional part but the cheapest place to eat is definitively a pizzeria called "day to day" on ateneminkuja. They have surprisingly decent falafels, pizzas and kebab for 5€ witch is surely the least one can spend to eat in Helsinki.
