You can choose veggies for your dish and then make a decision about sauce and pick your favourite meat/cheese/etc. for your dish. The staff will fry it all up and bring the delicious combo to your table! Dig in! :)

Went there with a friend to try something new a few years ago and got attached to the place right away.

The place offers a decent healthily lunch in a nice atmosphere. Food is fresh and simple. The building is one of the older ones in downtown Joensuu and has a warm and cozy feeling. Place was also packed during lunch which is always a good sign!
