Spice in Kadriorg

Spice in Kadriorg

Cantina Carramba is one of Tallinn’s few Mexican restaurants.

 

This cellar restaurant, with its swinging saloon doors certainly gives the feeling of being in Mexico. The walls are painted orange-red and covered with Incan art, and sombrero light fixtures hang from the ceiling.

The long menu offers everything from salads and soups, to burritos and fajitas. Main courses cost around €10, and smaller appetisers go for just a few euros. Spicy foods are marked with one to three chillies. The drink list features Mexican beers and tequila, and a strawberry margarita makes a tasty dessert.

To start we ordered an avocado soup with chicken (€4.40). This tasty soup was filling and refreshing.

As a main course we ordered the Cantina Fiesta (€26.20), which is meant to be shared between two. The platter came with chicken wings, ribs, fried jalapenos, cheese sticks and onion rings, as well as cheese and salsa bread. It was accompanied with salsa and guacamole.

Our favourites were the fried jalapenos and onion rings, but the ribs were also quite tasty. We didn’t have room for dessert, but the menu offered ice cream filled tortillas and white chocolate cake.

The service was friendly and attentive at Carramba. It also has a great location, right in the heart of Kadriorg. Trams 1 and 3 will take you there.
