Tallinn’s favourite burgers

Tallinn’s favourite burgers

Estonia’s capital loves its burgers and it seems like every month a new burger joint opens up. We asked Tallinn locals where they go to satisfy their burger cravings. Here is what they told us.

 

Taps

Klooga mnt 7a, Tabasalu
While not technically in Tallinn, Taps is worth the drive. This casual little burger place offers a short menu including a grilled prawn sandwich and pulled pork. We loved the classic and especially liked their brioche buns.

 

Uulits
www.uulits.ee
Soo 1B/6, Tallinn
If you’ve never tried their burgers before, you can expect a juicy larger-than-life burger with fresh homemade toppings. Burgers, salads and fries are all made in-house, as is the mayo, sauce, and ketchup. Uulits is located in Kalamaja at the start of Soo, near the Põhja pst tram stop.

 

Burger Box

Kopli 4, Tallinn
Burger Box is certainly one of the favourites here. They have a very short menu, but what they do offer, they do well. Order your burger (we love the classic, but we’ve heard the veggie falafel burger is great too), then go next door to Põhjala’s Speakeasy for a pint. Your order is passed through a tiny hole in the wall between both places. This tiny takeaway is a cash-only spot.

 

Linnutee Puhvet

Suur-Karja 11, Tallinn Old Town
The popular food truck Linnutee Puhvet opened an indoor location in the Old Town, where they serve their delicious grilled burgers made fresh to order. What’s great about this place, apart from its convenient Old Town location and great food, is the setup. A counter wraps around the open kitchen/bar, so you can sit among the action.

 

Diner
www.dinerfood.ee
Vabaduse pst 39, Tallinn
Just as the name suggests, Diner takes its inspiration from a classic American diner, except this diner serves mostly burgers. We could even go so far as to say they have the most extensive burger menu in Tallinn. If you’re looking for a tiny burger, you won’t find it here. Their regular burgers are mammoth, which makes us wonder what the XXL ones look like. Their veggie burger is quite tasty as well.

 

Estonian Burger Factory
ebf.ee
Pärnu mnt 41a, Tallinn
EBF was one of the first “gourmet” burger places in Tallinn. The brains and some say the talent behind the popular Vesivärava Grill started EBF back in 2014. Freshly grilled beef burgers are served on soft homemade buns. Try some of their sides too, including the fries, which are one of our favourites in the city.

 

Hotokas
www.facebook.com/Hotokas
Toompuiestee 16, Tallinn
Ok, so it’s not a burger a joint, but we wanted to include it anyway. Hotokas serves hot dogs. Choose between different kinds of sausages, tons of different toppings and some tasty fries too. They even have a couple of burgers on the menu too.
