    Smile What is food cost in Finland?

    HI all, I might would come to Finland next year, my relatives told me to search internet, for eating, and other necessary costs in Finland... Therefore I'm giving this thread here... Averagely, in middle or south part of Finland, what is the cost, firstly I would like to know about food, out there? I mean how about standard restaurant cost? Fast food cost? And vegetable, meat, milk, bread, etc.? Thanks and good day!

    hmm if I recall well, eating in fast foods cost around 8-9 euros...
    restaurants.. well maybe around 15-20 euros (for example a chinese restaurant might cause around 16 euros).
    for the milk, its about 0.90 euros,
    and bread is about 1.50 euros
    I hope this can help you

    Hi T-bag, thanks for telling me about that, I would probably eat lots of Turkish pizzerias there, haha...
    You are posting too fast!
    And what if I cook foods by myself? 5 EURs per one meal is enough?

    I am not too sure how much cost seafood. I don't remember.. hmmm maybe between 2 and 6 euros? I have not clue! :S I don't remember for fruits and vegetables. I guess it depends how much you take.

    well in Oulu University's guide, they say that you should have about 500 euros per month in order to pay for the rent and the food (that you buy at a store).
    maybe this information could give you an idea? rent in the residences is between 117euros and 250 euros... so let's say you need 250 euros for a month to eat.

    well 250 euros to live through a month and eat.
    I guess it's up to you to eat out or just buy food. Personnally, I'd just buy food and cook it myself, it is often cheaper over all to do so.

    Fruit and veges are very expensive. I don't know what the cost of living is in China, but it's not cheap in Finland.

    I think that 250 Euros a month to eat would be pushing it if you want to eat well. The markets do have special sometimes, and that helps, but most food is expensive. Potatoes are cheap.

    250 EUR to live through a month and eat, not count flat rent, right? I also am thinking to buy food and cook by myself, hehe...

    Fuit and veges are expensive? This doesn't sound good, here it's easy to buy fruit and veg, China is a big agriculture country you know... I have to eat one apple a day, how would it cost?
