Tamperrada Pintxo Competition is Finland’s biggest restaurant festival, where restaurants from the Pirkanmaa region showcase their best gastronomic expertise for five days in the form of small food portions called “pintxos” at an affordable price of 3.5€ per piece. The audience explores the city and gets to know new restaurants.

Pintxo differs from tapas in that it’s enjoyed personally with 2-3 bites, while tapas dishes are shared among the group. In 2023, the event will be held for the 11th time.

VOTING is done on Facebook by liking the dish photo. You can also vote using the form below. Multiple votes from the same address will be automatically disqualified. Among all voters (form + FB), a 1000 EUR travel gift card will be raffled. The voting form will be visible only from August 29th to September 3rd.

A concert featuring three top Basque bands will be held at Tavara-asema on August 31st. Buy concert tickets for 20 EUR.
