Ohana’s burgers need no introductions when it comes to locals, as they are voted year after year to be the best in town, and rightly so. Found in the Tampere Market Hall, Ohana Grille and Bakery invest in using local produce and ingredients, and making everything from scratch. For example the impressive brioches come from their bakery across the corridor, and the ingredients for the steaks from a couple of shops away, from the meat vendor selling local produce from small farms. Ohana is always relaxed and even when there’s queue forming in front of the till, you never have to wait for your meal for too long.

At the sushi bar Imami you can enjoy the most delicious sushi in Tampere, made with the best attitude. The dishes are made daily form the ingredients that are available, and the restaurant closes its doors when they run out of rice – sushi master Liqun Zhang can’t tolerate any food being wasted and values true encounters over production figures. Umami emphasizes on being able to serve each customer individually and offering the best, sometimes even surprising, culinary experiences without any rush. Umami can’t be found on social media, but only in the Market Hall. Despite of not being on-line, the sushi bar is almost always full of customers. That means it’s also worth the occasional queue!
