On Monday evening I, Anne from Anne’s food and Kristina from Clivia’s cuisine took the ferry from Stockholm to Tallinn in Estonia to meet Pille from Nami-nami. The monday evening and night was spent on the ferry and on Tuesday morning we arrived in Tallinn.
We first went for a morning coffee at Double Coffee in the shopping mall Viru Keskus where I enjoyed a banana latte, with whipped cream and banana liquer, which wasn’t quite what I had expected but it was really good. Maybe not the ideal breakfast though :-)

After some strolling in the shops it was finally time to meet up with Pille at the Town Hall. It was so nice to finally meet sweet Pille and she directly took us for lunch at Kuldse Notsu Kõrts, a restaurant with traditional Estonian food, where we first exchanged gifts and then had a lovely lunch. We got Estonian recipes and a nice soap that smells like tar (!) which will be perfect when I’ll go for a sauna with Fredrik to the bath house the next time. Kristina and Anne received marzipan figures while I got a cute clay cat as I had already received a marzipan frog with the blogging for post parcel that Pille sent me before summer. And we gave Pille cups from Höganäs to match with her teapot.
Meat in jelly with potatos and a very hot tasty Estonian mustard.
For starters we shared meat in jelly with potato and a very hot Estonian mustard, which I really liked. Pille told us that the dish is very typical in Estonia especially for special occasions; just as in Poland. For main I had a great casserole with chicken liver and mashed potoates which was very nice. Liver is underestimated and really tasty.

I enjoyed the food very much at Kuldse Notsu Kõrts, it was hearty and delicious. Instead of eating dessert at Kuldse Notsu Kõrts, Pille showed us beautiful Tallinn and we then went to Chocolats de Pierre where we had lovely chocolates and desserts together with coffee. I loved the interior and I wish that we had a place like this in Stockholm. After the coffee we had some more sightseeing and shopping and then it was finally time to get back to the ferry again. Thank you so much kind Pille for our lovely day and that you took your time with us. Thank you for the lunch, the gifts and for showing us Tallinn! And a big thanks to Anne and Kristina for the great travel company.

Spiced almonds outside Olde Hansa. My husband loved these and luckily Pille has a good recipe on her site.
