When In Estonia ... Eat African
While African cuisine doesn't rate quite as highly on the "know it and love it" scale as, say, Chinese or Indian, we do need to nourish our stomachs in a multicultural way. So next time you're traveling through the Baltics and pop by Estonia's gorgeous capital Tallinn, take the chance to check out the tasty African Kitchen.
Not only are the prices great, but there are also plenty of interesting dishes, and definitely things you'll never have heard of. What we love is the equality-based cocktail menu: 23 countries of Africa are represented, each getting a cocktail named after them. The Algeria, for example, is full of strawberries, strawberry liqueur, cherry brandy and vodka (yum!), while the Libya mix has Jack Daniels and cream sherry topped up with treacle and fruit juices.
None of them have much to do with their namesakes, but they'll put you on the tasty path to inebriation nonetheless. If you're not sure whether to choose between a Madagascar or a Mozambique, the African Kitchen are quick to point out that "traditional" cocktails are available too. Grab a Rwanda for us while you're there.
