Everything except for the tortilla (which was lacking salt, maybe the potatoes had been a frozen product and it was bland and soggy because of that) tasted to be from the can (olives, artichoke hearts etc.).

Kim's tapas is a nice Spanish style tapasbar in Helsinki. The owner loves Spain and loves to speak Spanish. Red wines are better than in most places in Helsinki, so this is already a reason to step in. A place to get to know people from the neighbourhood, too. Sometimes live music.

Good tapas different warm and cold. Very good. A bar that takes around 20 people. Good service, the owner behind the bar very friendly. Check opening hours, there is also a lot of private parties because it is so popular.

This small local bar is really a joke. Most of the food comes out of the tin, tortilla is only thing self made. The owner pretends to be a real specialist on spanish food but is really only irritatingly stupid character.
