[what I ate.] 14-23. December 2018

Whoopsie! Holidays happened and I cut my finger and needed to get stitches and then I had some rough times at work, so this is why I fell behind with posting again. Welp, time to catch up 😀

14. December

Coffee, marzipan pastry.

Chicken curry.

Chicken curry and a coconut yoghurt drink. The drink was great and had actual pieces of coconut in it which was cool.

15. December – Escape Room

Chicken nugget wrap. Coffee.

Fried squid with dip at Noya. We crashed this restaurant after going to a Leonardo DaVinci inspired escape room. Most dishes we had were shared among all of us.

Mediocre beef tartar and super yummy salmon tartar with avocado.

Hubby ate a waguy “burger”. It was alright. Good beef served with lame bread.

I really liked the tempura mushrooms and white fish. The soup was a Nordic style “ramen” where noodles were replaced with strips of squid. The ramen concept was cool, but I only ate a few bites, because the entire thing was inedible salty. Both I and another girl sent these dishes back 😦

The kitchen sent us some tasty yellowtail tataki as an apology. That was a sweet gesture of them.

My replacement dish for the ramen was Nordic shrimp “tacos.” They were okay I guess, but I would in no way call these tacos xD

In general, Noya left me feeling a bit meh… there were some tasty treats and some failures, but in the end, I felt it was too pricey, especially considering that I was still kind of hungry after sharing all the food (as the restaurant concept suggested). Not worth all the hype I have been hearing about this place, sadly.

Puchitto Soda candies. An amusing treat. (I bought a computer pad 😀 Had to show it off, because I am so happy with my newfound ability to now comfortably read fanfiction in bed 😀 )

Gnocci in mushroom sauce. Nom!

22. December

Honey cereal with milk, coffee.

Shared snacks with hubby: Hokkaido cheese mochi (from Niigata prefecture), matcha dorayaki (from Tokyo), Gogo no Koucha milk tea cake (from Tokyo) and Matcha chocolate coated pecans (from Tokyo). The mochi puffs were yummy, and so were the dorayaki and the milk tea cake. The pecans were not my thing.

27. November

Porridge with chia seeds, raspberry bits and some tangerine.

Spicy instant noodles with sour cream. Not as spicy as I expected and kind of sweet tasting which I didn’t like.

[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
