“Tiny place, good food but terrible interior”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Usually I would complain about restaurants that make big efforts in interior design and have no substance in the plate. This place is the opposite, great food (no plates!), tasty, good ingredients, value for money.
But the interior is tiny, and needs a good scrub from ceilings to the floors. Hence the average rating, because I think a minimum standard could be met and this place would make a killing.

“Best vegeburgers you can find!”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Vegemesta is a small place with reggae sounds and the best vegetarian burgers you can find in the whole country! Done with care and without hurry, the burgers provide you all you need to cater for you needs. Music plays loud, there are only a few seats, but the spirit is high. Most customers have take-away portions but you can also enjoy your meal inside.

“One of the few places for good cheap food in Helsinki”
Reviewed July 31, 2012

It's hard to find cheap food in Helsinki especially if you want something tasty and easy. This is one of the very few places I have found since living here and it's a local treasure. Shh... don't let on. But go have a burger.

“A fantastic veggie/vegan burger place in the heart of Kallio”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

I went to Helsinki because I wanted to see Finland. But secretly, I went because I wanted to eat here. The place in Kallio (there is now another location down on the Esplanade) is small and cramped and you'll be elbow to elbow with other patrons on any given night. The air will be filled with the smoke from burgers sizzling away in a frying pan on top of a small gas stove. And you'll love it. The menu is quirky, the burgers are amazing, and you'll leave spending less then ten euro. There are a few seats along the window inside, as well as a PC that you can use to surf the web a bit while you wait for your snack. There are also one or two round tables for couples just outside. Feel free to take your burger and go and get a beer at the great bars nearby.
