Those of you, who have been following us on Instagram, have probably noticed that we’ve been eating out quite a lot the past week (no pun intended). We were handed this tempting opportunity to try out 8 different restaurants in Rotermann Food Street, and needless to say, we accepted. I mean… wouldn’t have you? So, without further ado, let’s get to the first 4 restaurants – FLAMM, TOA, Ruby & PULL.
FLAMM Flammkuchen Bar
I ordered FLAMM: RIZO with cream, Chorizo sausage, oyster mushroom, garlic and onion – 9/10.
Marek ordered FLAMM: ZOLA with cream, Gorgonzola cheese and spinach – 8/10.
Can’t really say anything bad about this place, they were both really good and we’re definitely going to visit this place again. The only reason why we didn’t give them a 10/10 is probably the fact that we’ve eaten pizza in Naples and no pizza (and its look-alike) in Estonia has offered the flavours we experienced there.
TOA – Taste of Asia
For main I ordered fried rice with vegetables, egg and tiger prawns – 8/10.
It needed a bit more salt, otherwise perfect light dish.
For dessert I ordered spring rolls with banana filling and chocolate sauce – 5/10.
They weren’t bad, but they weren’t a memorable taste experience either. I feel like it would’ve been better if the chocolate would have been inside the spring roll, together with the banana.
For main Marek ordered Tom Kha Gai / medium spicy Thai-style coconut milk soup with chicken fillet – 7/10.
Tasted great, but the consistency wasn’t as thick as he had hoped.
For dessert Marek ordered fried gyoza pockets with Matcha tea and pistachio filling – 4/10.
The gyoza pockets were nice, but the Matcha tea and pistachio taste balance was entirely off. We didn’t taste pistachio at all and the taste of Matcha wasn’t as strong as we had hoped.
Both of the main dishes come in huge bowls though, so you don’t have to worry about leaving the restaurant hungry – even if you skip desserts altogether.
I ordered chicken breast salad with smoked chicken breast, potatoes, salad mix, quinoa, cherry tomatoes, onion, cucumber and poached egg – 7/10.
Marek ordered roast beef bagel with roast beef, cream cheese, pickled cucumbers, tomatoes, salad mix and pickled onion – 7/10.
Both of our dishes were good and neither of us really has any complaints. The reason why we didn’t give them a higher score is that it doesn’t seem fair to give as much points to a salad or a bagel as we’d give to a more complex dish.
I ordered pulled pork – 10/10.
I don’t like meat. I still eat it from time to time, but I’ve never grown fond of it. Until now… PULL’s pulled pork is to die for. If I could, I would eat it every day. The marinated red onion on top complements it nicely and the pan-fried potatoes do too. Definitely going back for more!
Marek ordered PULL’s burger & PULL’s pan-fried potatoes – 9/10.
If the burger would’ve been medium rare instead of medium it would’ve been 10/10 for him. Although that was kind of his own fault, because you can tell the waitress how you would like your meat.
Side note: Three tables, who left before us, told the waitress that they “just had the best meat in their life”.
