Many Estonian restaurants up until now have stuck to more traditional styles. Mix adds its own style to the Tallinn restaurant scene. There are many interesting dishes on the menu, there is even a great choice of sushi, starting at 1,50€ per piece. The interior of this new restaurant has a distinct Scandinavian elegance –modern lounge style and calm colours and shapes.

The Baltic Guide tried dishes from different groups on the menu. For starters we had the goose liver terrine, which was delicious and melted in your mouth. The mango chutney on the side was a great accompaniment, adding that hint of Asian flavour. The perfect sized portion set our taste buds watering for what was to come next.

The Russian potato salad came with slow-cooked deer and crayfish. The deer was succulent and I could have certainly eaten much more. We also tried the sushi, and Mix definitely knows what they are doing when it comes to this Japanese favourite. The maki and nigri were just right for one bite. For dessert we tried a cherry cheesecake, a great ending to a great meal. It had just the right amount of sweetness.

Main dishes cost between 8 and 28€, like the Thai-style tuna with Estonian slow-cooked deer. There are also two soups on the menu: a gazpacho (5€) and Tom Kha Gain (3,50€).

Fusion cuisine pays special attention to the appearance of the dish as well as the flavour combinations. At Mix, this was no exception, the dishes looked like works of art.
