A true five course gourmet feast in Tallinn can cost half the price compared to other European capitals and medieval food is definitely something to remember. Have you tried roast bear recently?
Wild boar, venison, bear and deer are all widely available roasted, as patés or as salami-style sausages.
Beer lovers will enjoy a wide range of malt and rye beers.
Traditional Estonian cuisine relies heavily on pork, potatoes and a variety of garden vegetables. The main culinary and gourmet cooking traditions were historically influenced by Germans, who ruled over Estonians for many centuries. Estonian cuisine is historically rather limited – the typical ingredients are black bread, pork, fish, cabbage soup, potatoes, vegetables and various dairy products.
However nowadays, Estonian gourmet cuisine has emerged together with foreign influenced fusion cooking styles and more foodies are falling love with it every day.
Try some traditional Estonian dishes whilst you are here, for example, the Silgusoust (Baltic sprats with bacon and cream), Mulgikapsad (pork with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes), Verivorst (blood sausage and barley), Sült (boiled pork in aspic jelly), and suitsulõhe (smoked salmon).
Kissell (a sweet made of juice sweetened or milk at the taste of berries, strawberries, etc..), rhubarb cake and kama are some of the most popular traditional desserts.
Something to look for is also a popular drink Kali (a cross between beer and cola in taste, but alcohol free).
