The most typical soup in the Estonian menu, ideal for cold winter days and nights is Hernesupp. It is made of yellow split pea, onion, barley, garlic, carrots and if you don’t lean towards a veggie diet, then add some smoked pork too, it’s also common.
Where would you try such a dish? Well ideally at a family dinner. Second best would be Vanaema Juures translating into “Grandma’s place”. Grandma’s place specializes in traditional old recipes that you would normally find at a real grandma’s place. The whole ambient supports the overall homey feeling. Some of the comments on Tripadvisor are: “It was one of our eating highlights, good traditional food, cooked well, served well and reasonably priced.” “Dinner at this restaurant was one of the highlights of our trip to Tallinn” “It’s like eating at your granny’s. Delicious homemade food from Estonia!!! We really loved and enjoyed everything, including our plates! ” You can find them here
