[what I ate.] 22-28. October 2018

22. October – Venom

A banana.

Some vitamin water and a doughnut after working out. I took the second doughnut to Kerttu at her work place.

Coffee with my love in my favourite café The Living Room Café.

Popcorn. We went to see “Venom.” While not a perfect movie, it was still really fun and enjoyable. Not sure why most of the internet seems to be complaining over it. I had a blast and wouldn’t mind watching it again.

Salmon soup at my parent’s house.

Some cookies and tea.

23. October – from Tallinn to Girona

An almond pastry.

Quite crappy pelmeni with sour cream. The pelmeni were flavourless. I hadn’t bought this brand before, so it was a disappointment.

A grilled sandwich with cheese and sausage.

A latte and a chocolate croissant at KOHVer Café. Both were mediocre. I was disappointed, because I had over the top good memories of this place from the last time I was at the airport. No exquisite latte this time 😦 I mean it wasn’t bad, it was alright as far most coffee drinks go in Estonia, just I was hoping for a repeat wonderful experience.

Coffee on the plane. This was something new for me. They prepared this coffee by pouring hot water over fresh grounds in the cup. I mean I have made coffee like that at home many a time, but never have I seen such coffee being served in an establishment and with specialized disposable cups like these. Interesting and the coffee was good.

Some bread and ham late at night.

24. October

Fried eggs and bacon, some tomato, toast with cream cheese and ham. Coffee, a walnut-cereal yoghurt.

Coffee and a banana with a magnificent view. The kind of bananas I ate in Catalonia tasted different from the ones we usually can buy at home. I loved the flavour a lot and I hope I can find similar ones in Estonia too. Perhaps I should try to look in some organic food stores.

Pasta carbonara for dinner. There was also salad and baked chicken-vegetable skewers. I only remembered to take a photo midway dinner xD

Beer and ice cream.

25. October

An omelette and pa amb tomata which is a traditional Catalan breakfast staple. Basically it’s “bread with tomato” xD First you rub the toast with garlic, then with tomato and then pour some olive oil on top. Quite a tasty breakfast 😀

Some yoghurt, orange juice, coffee and cake.

Some orange and tomatoes, toast with hazelnut-milk spread and a cup of coffee.

Some cookies, brioche and a lemon muffin.

Beer.


Roast chicken with onions, plums, garlic and cinnamon, with a side of some salad and garlicy potatoes. Apparently, this type of meat dish is a typical Catalan Christmas food, but it was made for us as a special occasion 🙂 It was extremely delicious!

Yumyum!

A French style apple pie for dessert.

26. October

Orange juice, yoghurt, coffee, pa amb tomata, fried eggs, bacon.

A cappuccino and some complimentary olives. I almost never eat olives in Estonia, because most of the ones sold here taste gross. These were quite lovely tasting!

Bread and anchovies. I am not too sure about the anchovies, they weren’t bad, but I can’t say that I particularly liked them either.

Snails in spicy sauce. These were yummy!

Beer and a banana.

Vegetable puree soup with croutons and some funky French bread other guests from France shared with us.

Salad, some fried sausages (a bit too salty for my likes) and a macaroni dish with pork ribs that was oh so delicious.

Nice chocolate cake with crappy canned whipped cream.

27. October – going back to Estonia

Coconut yoghurt, coffee, omelette, bacon, pa amb tomata.

Some orange juice and chocolate chip cake.

A sugar doughnut and some coffee.

Roasted giant corn. So yummy!

Some potato chips and a cappuccino on the plane. I like the text on the cup: “Please attend to your own cappuccino before attempting to steal your neighbour’s” xD A funny twist on the airplane safety tips xD

Chicken tikka masala. It looked and smelled awful but tasted alright.

28. October

Coffee, chocolate chip bread.

Buckwheat with beef liver, sour cream and some salad.

Pocari Sweat. Good hydrating drink :p

Tomb Raider… 10. April 2018

 Omelette with garlic sprouts, some tomatoes and cucumber.

 Chocolate ice cream.

 Miso soup with broccoli and sour cream.

 Spicy rice with potatoes, carrots and tofu and some salad with mushrooms and garlic sprouts.

 Frozen yoghurt with crisps, marshmallows and blueberries.

We went to see the new “Tomb Raider” movie in the evening. I liked this interpretation of Lara Croft a lot. The movie was very enjoyable and fun.

Black Panther… 25. February 2018

 Corn flakes with milk.

 Hot and sour noodles with boiled egg, sour cream and some wieners. Also had a glass of orange-lemongrass lemonade.

We went to see “Black Panther” in the evening. I liked the movie a lot. It was visually stunning and interesting story wise. Also, I liked all the ass kicking beautiful women in the story.

Blade Runner 2049… 11. October 2017

 Coffee and Greek yoghurt with wild berry jam (I ate two of those)

 Corn and bean soup with pork and some sour cream

 Nuts and seeds in dark chocolate

 Rice with tuna, eggs and sesame-wasabi spice

We went to see “Blade Runner 2049” in the evening. Wow, that movie was such a stunning piece of art. I loved the aesthetics and the music. The story too was engrossing and oh so terribly sad. I had a genuinely fantastic movie experience.

Blade Runner… 8. October 2017

 Leftover Indian style curry with beef and cashews + rice and a couple of fried eggs. Looks horrid, was delicious.

 Shared these two pastries with my boyfriend: a giant quark pastry and a cardamom pastry. They looked might fine, but I didn’t enjoy their flavour very much.

 Rice cake with ice cream and pineapple-apple jam + a cup of coffee.

 Vegetable and mushroom soup with sour cream.

 Homemade white bread with butter. So good! We devoured almost half of the big loaf, I made, in one go XD

We watched the 1982 “Blade Runner” movie in the evening. I had never seen it, despite having read about the movie and its significance in so many research papers and pop culture analysis. I had read Philip K. Dick’s “Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?” and it was thrilling to me to spot all the familiar things from the book. I really enjoyed the entire aesthetic of the movie and the story too. I was, however, amused at the OH SO awkward acting, but eh xD Good movie, am excited to see the sequel to it now on big screen soon.

Have you seen the old and/or new “Blade Runner” movie(s)? Did you enjoy them? 😀

Wonder Woman… 20-21. June 2017

20. June

 Peanuts in chocolate and some coffee

 Wrap with bacon and some sweet potato fries

 A potato-nettle cutlet my mom made, some venison sausages and rice with broccoli sauce

 Tea and strawberries in matcha chocolate

21. June

 Coffee, fried venison sausages and eggs

 Banana and a peanut butter chocolate chip Lärabar

 A meat pastry, potato-mushroom cutlet and some water kimchi

We went to see Wonder Woman in the evening. I think it was wonderful. Best DC superhero movie so far.

Guardians of the Galaxy and so much coffee… 27-28. April 2017

27. April

 Omelette with rye bread

 Had a doughnut, a cinnamon roll and some coffee

 Buckwheat with chanterelle sauce

With Loviise and Indrek @ Gotsu, Kyuho’s Kitchen

 Lemonade

 Kimchi stew and rice, some rice rolls with minced meat and chili paste filling

 A Guardians of the Galaxy themed blueberry cupcake 😀

Loviise came to Tallinn. We had dinner in Gostu and then went to the premiere of “Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2.” There was a whole event around it with cupcakes and cosplayers :p I made my reluctant boyfriend take a photo with Mantis and Gamora too xD There was also a quiz before the movie and I did fairly well, scoring the 6th place overall out of about a 100 players xD

 I snagged these photos from the Kino Kosmos IMAX facebook page.


My tortured boyfriend with some awesome cosplay ladies :p

A tiny high-five! with Baby Groot 😀 And is that just me or does Star-Lord’s shirt look like it says “baby boy”? xD

The movie itself was fantastic. It was so fun. I have a hard time putting it to words how much I loved it.

28. April

 Oatmeal porridge with a banana, and a cup of coffee

 Eva is in Estonia 😀 We met up for lunch in Vegan Restoran V. I had a delicious smoothie while we discussed all that ails us like proper old people :p

 Black bean noodle salad with guacamole and peanut sauce

 Chocolate avocado cream with cherry sauce

 Then we had coffee in a nearby café. I also had a pistachio roll.

 After meeting Eva, I picked up Loviise and went to show her where I work. Had another coffee and a bacon-onion pastry.

 Rice with tuna, cabbage and soy sauce with some cottage cheese and salad

 Sea-buckthorn lemonade
