Tenho – Legendary place, new vibe, good food

So you have made your way to Kallio, possibly during one of the cool street festivals or just to wander about. But where to eat? I recommend Tenho. There used to be a restaurant called Tenho here in the 1930s, during the wild-wild-west years of Kallio. It gained quite a reputation. Then a couple of names, decades and clubs later, here’s Tenho again, now serving as an artisanal pizzeria slash restaurant. It is spacious, the food is tasty and it can get quite vibrant during the evenings with live music and culture.

My first memory of this place, then called Marionetti, dates back to when I was young and stupid. Well, old enough to go to a bar, so we had to hide our own liquor bottle under a car outside to pick it up afterwards. Now that we are old and stupid, we’re happy with the new Tenho and the nice drinks they have to offer.

Note: the kitchen closes at 23:00, and on Friday and Saturday at midnight.
