Lonely Planet review

The one foodie highlight in Ilomantsi is this cafe-restaurant in the Parppeinvaara village, which does a real-deal pitopöytä (Karelian buffet) in summer in a traditional house complete with a kantele soundtrack. Here you can heap your plate high with vatruskoita (salmon-stuffed pastry), swill down the nonalcoholic kotikalja (which tastes like a home-brewed beer) and finish with sticky berry soup.
