Each month a different restaurant is chosen to feature the best of Estonian cuisine.

Back in June I was asked to come along for a flight from Tallinn to London. Marit Marga, from Vihula Manor (about hour’s drive east of Tallinn) came on board to talk about the menu and serve us food. Vihula Manor prides themselves on using local Estonian ingredients, and in the air it’s no different.

On the way to London, Marga served us pork tenderloin cooked sousvide with pota toes and salted cucumbers. Very Estonian indeed! The pork, because of the way that it was cooked was soft and moist, comparable to a good restaurant meal. On the way back, the fish cakes made with local Estonian fish and served with a creamy potato salad did not disappoint either.

In addition to the delicious food, Premium class offers its passengers complementary beer and wine, and spirits on journeys two or more hours long.
