[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

I like cauliflower, but I hate the way it smells… 29-30. January 2017

29. January

 Doughnuts and a rum pastry. I was joking that my bf should get us some doughnuts when he went out to run some errands and that silly thing did come home with these :p Not the doughnuts I was thinking of, but still neat :p

 Veggie soup (cauliflower, potato, pumpkin) wit lamb’s lettuce and toasted pumpkin seeds

 Some freshly baked white bread with butter

 Monty Bojangles pistachio truffles and coffee

30. January

 Rice cereal with milk

 White bread with butter and bacon

 Veggie soup (cauliflower, potato, pumpkin) wit lamb’s lettuce and breaded baked fish with broccoli and cheese

Street food… 11. June 2016

 Ate some leftover rice for breakfast (it had tuna, wakame, carrots and cauliflower in it)

 Spring rolls with sweet- and hot sauce that I shared with my boyfriend.

We went and strolled through Tallinn Street Food Festival @ Telliskivi Loomelinnak with the boy. It was raining and for whatever reason we didn’t take an umbrella with us, so it was uncomfortably wet and cold. However due to the rainy weather it wasn’t as crowded at the event, so we got to walk around more freely than any of the previous years and got our food relatively quickly.

 My beef and mozzarella wrap from ÖKU. It was so juicy and delicious.

Also two wrap stalls told me to bugger off before I got to the ÖKU stall xD A falafel wrap place was so busy with their orders they didn’t want to take any new ones and another wrap stall had run out of all things I would have gladly eaten.

 Coffee and a chili con carne burrito from Mero Mero food truck for my boyfriend.

The burrito was also super juicy and delicious. The combination of chili and guacamole was really great in a burrito. We had to wait about 20 minutes for the burrito, so I jumped into a bicycle store next to the truck, because they advertised selling coffee and warm coffee sounded so good. The bicycle store seemed to be a hipster hub, so I got long awkward stares when I stepped in there from all the heavily bearded guys XD So weeeeeeird… I felt out of place in my hoodie and ripped jeans xD

 Coffee and a cinnamon-sugar doughnut. The doughnut was okay albeit a bit dry. I wish it would have had some sort of filling to make it a bit juicier.

 I didn’t feel like cooking dinner and since we had had a late lunch and a doughnut snack anyway, I ended up eating a banana and some peanut butter for dinner.

 My boyfriend hiding under a tree from the rain with his food.

Later we went and bought me some workout shoes, a tent and a giant pack of cat food. Day well spent.
