For about 10 € we had good homemade type food from a buffet, there was meat soup, a variety of sallad as well as hot dishes to choose from. The meat-califlower cratine was good as well was the steak.

This is a very old and well known bar in Kallio district, in the heart of Kallio. Mainly people visit there for singing the karaoke. The karaoke hosts sing very well too. Self service from the counter. Lunch also available, but never tried that.
