June Restaurant News
Summer is upon us and so is the opening of some fantastic new restaurants.
You can’t go wrong with pizza, and you certainly can’t go wrong with the woodfire pizza from Kaja Pizza Köök (Õle 33, Tallinn). The rustic pizza kitchen is open daily at 12 noon and stays open until their dough runs out. The menu offers pizza, of course, as well as a couple of salads. The thick, crusty base is covered with ample toppings. Eat in (if you can find seat) or takeaway.
Moving into the Old Town, the infamous Shooters bar closed and has been replaced by the classy brasserie Tabac (Suur-Karja 4, Tallinn Old Town). Enjoy fabulous cocktails and dine from a classic bistro menu. We quite liked the filet mignon with smoky carrots and onion cream.
The selection of international restaurants continues to grow in Tallinn. Nok Nok (Vana-Posti 7, Tallinn Old Town) is the latest addition to that list. Tallink’s latest culinary endeavour is a Thai restaurant in the Old Town. With over 15 years experience in hotel kitchens and fine dining, Chef Pensiri Pattanachaeng has developed a flavourful menu exploring the tastes of Thailand.
Also adding to the same list is Taqueria Tacos & Drinks (Rotermanni 14, Tallinn). Recently opened in the Rotermann Quarter, this Mexican restaurant is a great place for a casual evening with friends.
Bar Bronto (Vana-Viru 14, Tallinn Old Town) is the latest addition to Tallinn’s ever-growing list of fashionable cocktail bars. While we haven’t had a chance to go check it out yet, the extensive cocktail list is impressive.
If you’re headed out to Pirita on a nice sunny day, Vigri kohvik (Purje 8, Tallinn), is a family-friendly stylish buffet with a sea view where you will find a rich selection of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
