This month, I already wrote a blog post about my training habits, so I thought that I may write once again something other than fashion. Let me know in the comments below if you would like to see more lifestyle post in future. Maybe once or twice in a month?
So this blog post will be about food. Mainly I like to cook at home but some of you probably have seen on my Instagram Stories that I’ve been eating quite a lot outside this past week. I was asked to try out eight different restaurants and cafes in the Rotermann Food Street and it’s hard to say no to food as I’m a huge foodie. I was able to visit Taqueria, FLAMM Flammkuchen Bar, RØST and Pull last week and Ruby, Purée, Saku Gastro and TOA-Taste of Asia this week. And here are my experiences:
FLAMM Flammkuchen Bar
I ordered: FLAMM: NERO (7,9€) first one from the left
I can honestly say that this was my favorite place. I’m a huge fan of pizzas and I will tell you right away that this place does not serve any. They serve Flammkuchen – a German version of a delicious crispy thin crusty bread covered with for example crème fraîche, Parma ham, sage and olive cream. I’m not the biggest fan of olives but I’m a huge fan of Parma ham, so I needed to try FLAMM: NERO. If I’m being honest then NERO was my least favorite from these three. I went there together with Anna Elisabeth and Miramii M. and I have to say that my favorite flammkuchen was Miramii’s FLAMM: RIZO. PS! I have to mention that Flammkuchen service was the best. Our waitress was so lovely and she made this experience worth to visit this place in anytime soon!
Overall 9+ points!
I ordered: Pork Quesadillas with potatoes and salsa (8,50€)
I really like Mexican food, especially quesadillas and I didn’t have to disappoint in Taqueria. This portion was huge for a lunch and in my opinion, it’s more than enough for one person. Also, I liked that spicy dipping sauce which made these quesadillas juicy and delicious. I really enjoyed this cool atmosphere and I would love to go there again some Friday night with my friends to take some Margaritas and maybe try some tacos. (Sorry for that foggy iPhone photo, somehow my camera photos got deleted 🙁 )
Overall good 8 points! (Little bit too dark place for a lunch time, so not a place for Instagrammers :D)
I ordered: green tea, cinnamon roll (the other two are for Anna and Maarja) and pastel de nata (to-go for my husband)
First of all, I have to say that I really like RØST interior design. It’s so urban with the touch of Scandinavian vibe. I will definitely go there some Saturday morning with my hubby to enjoy these delicious and oh so soft cinnamon or cardamon rolls. Or if I need a lovely place where to work on my computer, it’s also a right place to be. The only minus is that they have a super small tea collection but if you drink coffee, like most of the people, it’s worth of visit! PS! Dogs are allowed in RØST and every time I have seen many cute dogs in there.

I ordered: Pull’s burger with pulled pork(11€), side-dish Pull’s pan-fried potatoes (3€)
Sander ordered: Beef cheek (12€), side-dish Health bomb (3€)
Before we went there I have heard many good words about this meat place. And I didn’t have to disappoint in my burger. It’s super moist and this pulled pork was done with perfection. I have to say that if you’re not that hungry or with the huge appetite then these side-dishes are not needed. Both of our dishes were big enough so unfortunately, we could finish our side-dishes but I really liked these tasty pan-fried potatoes. Sander ordered the beef cheek but both of us have to say that this meat was really plain. It’s nicely cooked but we expected more flavors from beef. Maybe it’s just we’ve had the best pork cheek in Sfäär a few years ago and nothing has ever been that delicious.
Overall 8 points!
I ordered: Roast-beef salad (7,6€)
It’s a quite simple salad and bagel cafe where you can sit inside but also outside and enjoy this cozy chilly autumn weather. I took a roast beef salad with buckwheat, pomegranate arils, red cabbage, and eggplants. My salad was good but for a lunch time, this place is too expensive for me and I didn’t get any “wow”-effect.
Overall 7 points!
I ordered: Green smoothie “Roheline Unistus” (big 4,9€), morning porridge (2€), sandwich (1,50€), 2x banana bread (2 x 0,80€)
Both, my porridge and smoothie, were huge. I’m not a very good eater in the morning time so it’s quite hard for me to finish my porridge. I took my avocado sandwich and banana bread to go and I really like that they ask if you want to have a takeaway bag or not. I love that conscious thinking. I’ll come back next time for a breakfast or brunch and I would love to try their soups and salads for the lunch. PS! Purée has reasonable prices and I’m definitely recommending this place if you need a nice and healthy place to eat!
Overall 9 points!
I ordered: Pan-fried cod with broccolini, buttery potato purèe, and tarragon veolutè
I really enjoyed this dish. Pan-fried cod was nicely cooked, crispy outside and soft inside. Some people, like my mother, would say that the sauce was little too salty but I love little bit saltier dishes than normally others would prefer. I would definitely take my father for a dinner in there because he is such fan of Saku beers. PS! My waitress was super lovely. She even worried if I’m cold sitting outside.
Overall 9 points!
TOA – Taste of Asia
I ordered: Yellow Thai Curry with basmati rice (8€+1,5€) Takeaway
Fun fact for you: I started to love Thai curry in India and since then I like to try different curries in Asian restaurants. This Yellow curry had enough spices for me but I was in a hurry to notice that I should have order chicken as an extra topping (3€). So I was a little bit disappointed when I got home and started to eat it with my hubby. No meat for us this dinner! Plus point for TOA: Takeaway only took 7-10 minutes and they put the whole set of cutlery with my order.
Overall 7 points! (A little bit too expensive when you have to buy chicken as an extra topping.)
I really hope that you got some good ideas where would you like to eat outside! 😉
