My new favourite vegan restaurant in the world
Posted on 08 / 10 / 2014
The restaurant (in late June-early July) was packed between 1:00-2:30 pm – you’re lucky to get a table between 12-3 pm if you don’t have a reservation, and there's a longer wait for meals to arrive. I'm glad to see this place so popular. Open 7 days a week at 12 noon.
I ate here several times during my 18 days in Tallinn, and I tried many different items from the menu.
Menu: Interesting-sounding starters from €3,20-6,00, the latter for a snack platter of fava bean/mushroom pâté, fried tofu, cucumber cups with cashew crème, grilled zucchini with cashew cheese, sundried tomatoes and olives. Three soups, €2,80-3,50, including yellow beet with lentils and chestnut. Seven entrees, €4,90-7,80: spaghetti and lentil balls, chickpea burger, chili, stuffed zucchini and warm broccoli salad with tahini orange sauce, spicy tofu and quinoa with peanut sauce, curry, white-bean potato balls and two small (beer-infused Israeli) couscous inside grilled cabbage rolls with carrot & celery root purée and mustard sauce for 7,80. You can request complimentary bread and oil. Desserts, €3,00-3,70: cashew crème with sea buckthorn marmalade, avocado coconut pudding with date caramel and strawberry-mint salad (best dessert ever!), cupcakes. Wines. Beers, including an Estonian rye ale and a couple of organic beers. (Mikkeller, two IPAs by De Molen, organic Saison Dupont, a Latvian beer, two Icelandic beers, organic pear cider.) Coffees, teas, spirits, fresh pressed juice of the day. Four of the seven mains are GF; all three soups are GF (one raw).
I really enjoyed the potato balls meal. The veg-noodle salad (raw) has a nice light tahini-orange dressing (noodles were (raw) bean sprouts and spiralized carrot, zucchini and something white like endive).
Usually there was mellow music playing. Pleasant young women staff. Very reasonable prices. I even like the toilet.
Since I'd read that wait staff in Estonia earn a low wage, I tipped well. They deserved it.
all vegan, pleasant staff, delicious and creative food
No decaffeinated coffee., Opens only at noon, wish it was earlier.
