Restaurant Day sprouted from Helsinki, is a food carneval when anyone can set up a restaurant, anywhere, for a day. The idea is simply to have fun, share new food experiences and enjoy common living environments together.

The next Restaurant Day takes place this Sunday 17 August and Stadion Hostel provides the setting for Heidi and Anna’s cheesecake bar Cupton.
There are three different flavours to choose from:

Call of Home Garden – currant
Voodoo Temptation – kiwi, passion fruit, coconut
Persian Dream – mint, cookie, chocolate

To accompany the cheesecakes try homemade rhubarb juice.

The cheesecake cups will be served at the north end of the Olympic Stadium, just outside Stadion Hostel, where you can sit down and relax while enjoying a sweet moment.

Oh bliss, see you there folks!
