We are in Tallinn, Estonia this afternoon and we have decided to stop for a Medieval feast at a restaurant that is called Olde Hansa.
As we’re just about to get Medieval on you we’re waiting for a fair Maiden to come take our order.
And what might you be drinking over there sir? With my Medieval sized cup I have a Medieval portion of root beer inside. Oh, take a sip of that! Oh wow, that’s genuine root beer. I can taste root. That’s not the artificial stuff you get back in Canada. Really? I want to try some.
So if you come to this restaurant you get a drink that is called the Monk’s bride. Cheers. Now let’s see what this tastes like. Mmmmm. Oh, it’s very sweet and concentrated. A little bit like cough syrup. Is this liquor? Is this alcohol? It must be! It smells really good. It smells like cinnamon a bit.
Over here I have ordered myself Neptune’s feast and if you look down at the plate we have some grilled salmon, some smoked salmon, a little cute fish, some hummus with caviar, we have quail eggs and some delicious rye bread. So let’s dig in!
Let’s try some of this. It looks so good. I don’t even like caviar but I’m going to eat this because it looks amazing. Oh yeah. That is some amazing garlicy hummus. I’m so happy. Save some for me!
This is a darker bread. It appears that there is some kinds of seeds and nuts in it. I’m also going to try some hummus on top. Oh, wow. Amazing isn’t it? I forgot what good bread tasted like. Fresh out of the oven.
Eat the little fish! Come on! Oh, with its tail and everything. Well? It’s really salty. Your favorite? No.
I feel like I should cut this down the middle. So this is a quail egg? Or maybe I should just stick it in my mouth. Pop it in – one go. A little hummus for extra flavoring. Oh, it’s like white inside. It tastes like egg.
Let’s see how that salmon tastes. It just melts in the mouth. If I had to eat salmon every day the rest of my life I wouldn’t be complaining.
That was a delicious feast and now it is time for dessert. We are having some kind of rose pudding which has flower pedals on top. You can have a flower pedal. Is it sweet? Oh yeah. What does it taste like? It’s creamy and fluffy and sugary. It’s like eating cloud.
A big spoonful. It’s like clotted cream with sugar. It is. It kind of reminds me of kind of a soft cheesecake filling.
