The best-known speciality of Savonlinna is "Lörtsy". Lörtsy is a pastry made of meat and rice, but there is also available a sweet pastry filled with apple jam. The most traditional way to eat Lörtsy is on a marketplace of Savonlinna in the summer time, but is available around the year in the local crocery stores and in "hot-dog stands". And what is also important to know the most original version of Lörtsy is called Laurikaisen Lörtsy, the Lörtsy of Laurikainen.
