Who doesn’t love good street food? Perhaps an oversized burger oozing some signature sauce or something that reflects local cuisine with a name you can’t pronounce... Whatever your flavour, there’s plenty to explore right here in Tallinn.
You’ll find a few street food options in the Old Town. Medieval-themed III Draakon has been enticing tourists with its unforgettable elk soup and fresh pies for years. Due to popular demand, Baojaam opened a second location on Müürivahe, with a slightly longer menu than at it’s Balti jaam market location. FishBish, a fish and chips takeaway in Viru Keskus, let’s you choose your own combo, including some excellent vegetarian and gluten-free options.
The one-stop-shop for street food is hands down the Baltic Station market. The ever-growing street food section of the market offers everything from sushi and dumplings to fried chicken and burgers. Just outside of the market is Depoo, a collection of old train cars and containers that have been turned into small restaurants and takeaways. Check the full listings in Shopping section.
Some of the first places to start offering street fare were Papa Joe and Bueno Gourmet. Still going strong, Papa Joe offers some of the best falafel and kebabs in town, as well as a good selection of Middle Eastern dips, spreads and olives to take away. Bueno Gourmet, a food truck located in the Telliskivi area, serves up tasty tacos, burgers, wraps and sandwiches.
Street food is a great way to get a sense of local food culture without committing to an entire meal in a restaurant. While Tallinn isn’t quite yet overrun with food trucks like many other cities of the world, we still have our fair share of street food where you can taste the flavours of the world without spending a fortune.
