I’m very fond of bars like Favela. A place that has some sort of culture or story behind it, and an atmosphere that represents that. Not that it has to be extremely authentic. Here you have a short but good menu of food and drinks. Burgers, or breads, are nice, but I also liked their fish soup. Since I’m a craft beer idiot I was delighted to find a couple of nice beers to top the tasty menu. And drinks like rum + ginger beer or quality Gin & Tonic have never hurt anyone.
Favela is not a huge place, and they don’t take any reservations. So you just have to jump in and see. But hey, fique tranquilo, have a drink at the bar if there are no tables available. Music is not too loud, and on Tuesdays there have been live jazz nights. So when and if you go to Töölö, give it a try.
