Two new restaurants on Viru FoodHall


Viru Foodhall is the only place in the heart of Tallinn where you can choose between as many as 15 menus offering different tastes. This cozy, but also glamorous place offers guests, among other things, pizza from a stone oven, Michelin-level food experiences and flavors from six different corners of the world. And in the new year, 2 newcomers are waiting for you to taste in Viru Foodhall – Loco Rolls and Pelmen.

Loco Rolls
Loco Rolls rules in the world of pancakes and ice cream rolls. Alongside known classics, Loco Rolls offers filled pancakes with caviar, salmon, curry chicken… or even Oreo – all juicy and delicious. But that’s not all. The uniqueness of Loco Rolls lies in the rolled ice cream, made and rolled right before your eyes, with your choice of toppings. Loco Rolls’ culinary rolls are favorites among both older and younger family members.

Pelmen respects local traditions. As you can guess from the name, Pelmen serves dumplings – entirely handmade, with 90% local ingredients and free from artificial preservatives. Pelmen’s assortment covers options from classics to modern extravagant tastes, and from vegetarian to sweet dishes. So, head to Viru Food Hall to try them out. You can also take them home, freshly frozen and just as tasty as on the spot.

Alongside the newcomers, Viru Food Hall still hosts already-known beloved gastronomic destinations and culinary experiences, brought together from different parts of the world into a unique selection and combination in the heart of Tallinn.

F. Burger
With a la carte fast food and recommendations from the White Guide, F. Burger, led by head chef Dmitri Fomenko, treats you to juicy burgers and refreshing craft drinks. The menu also features crispy healthy salads and flavorful soups. Here, both classic hamburger lovers and those preferring a waist-friendly version will find their favorite burger. F. Burger’s highlight is the freshly baked brioche bun, local beef patty, and a rich trio of sauces, but you can also discover potato pancakes and avocado. It’s said to be the best burger in the city center.

Mikkeller is also offering city’s best. Part of the world’s top breweries, Mikkeller primarily offers excellent craft beer. Alongside, they serve delicious chicken wings. The successful beer and poultry combination is no coincidence – Mikkeller brought a chef directly from London to strengthen their kitchen team. The bar’s menu includes a rich selection of non-alcoholic drinks, making it perfect for a lunch break. Mikkeller’s bars around the world are known for their cozy atmosphere, and this new gem in Tallinn is a must-visit!

Known for tantalizing Asian flavors, the famous restaurant TaiBoh’s little cousin KimiJimi offers the best of Asian street food. You’ll find dishes characteristic of Vietnamese, Korean, and Cambodian cuisines. KimiJimi also offers daily specials and a selection of drinks from Asia. Your new favorites like tiger prawns, curry chicken, soups, and woks await!

Samsa Family Bakers
Moving from Asia towards Europe, we reach the powerful and mysterious Uzbekistan. Uzbek traditions are vividly reflected in their national cuisine. Think dumplings, meat pies, pilaf, and shashlik can’t surprise you anymore? Let Samsa Family Bakers prove you wrong. Instead of ordinary dumplings, they serve large mantis steamed with chopped onions and meat. Tip: Don’t cut the manti with a knife, just grab it and bite! Samsas, or yeast-leavened pastry pies, are baked here with various meat and sweet fillings. And you won’t find Uzbek pilaf like this anywhere else – its unique flavor comes from herbs picked in the Uzbek mountains and a local type of peas essential for the national dish.

PokeBowl & Meze
This restaurant offers signature dishes from two regions. You’re probably familiar with the Hawaiian poke bowl, a hearty meal packed with greens and vitamins. Meze brings rich Middle Eastern culinary traditions, represented by local food superstars like falafels, hummus, kebabs, dolma, and regional sweets like pastilla, lokum, and baklava. The chef at Meze has worked hard to create chickpea balls falafels suited to the Estonian palate, offering a unique taste experience. Add baba ganoush (“the master is angry” in English) sauce and labneh, a soft cheese seasoned with herbs, and you get an authentic taste of the sunny lands.

MySushi is a city classic that never disappoints. Located in the corner near Tammsaare Park, this restaurant has created a special atmosphere for enjoying traditional Japanese flavors. Sushi enthusiasts will appreciate the wide menu selection and fast preparation. The broad drink selection and the opportunity to enjoy a peaceful meal in the heart of the city are added bonuses. In warm weather, the restaurant expands to an outdoor terrace.

Stereo Street Food
Also making it to the White Guide list, Stereo Street Food has become one of the main attractions of Food Street. The restaurant brings the best traditions of sunny Latin American street food to the Nordic atmosphere of Tallinn. Tiina Kõresoo, dubbed the queen of Tallinn’s pop-up restaurants, has spent years researching the tastiest Latin American recipes, so you can be sure that here you’ll find perfectly finished dishes that radiate authentic Latin America from their names, serving and cutting styles, and ingredients. A large part of the ingredients even come from across seven seas and lands: Yucca fries, tacos, picadillos, tiradito, and of course, orange wine are just a must-try. If you dare to try something especially delicious and novel, then Stereo Street Food is a definite recommendation!

Kolm tilli pizza & pasta
During the cold season, the live fire in the hot stone oven draws visitors in. In this oven, genuine Neapolitan-style pizza is made. Food enthusiasts are also captivated by the wonderful selection of handmade pastas. The flavors refined and made famous in Tartu’s Aparaaditehas have finally reached the capital! In Viru Food Hall, you can enjoy the best of Italian street cuisine. In the open kitchen, delicacies are prepared, including both traditional recipes and exciting offers and surprises.

Food Hall also caters specifically to coffee and sweet lovers! Almost all restaurants offer desserts, but in addition, there are cafes dedicated solely to sweets. Here you can put a wonderful finishing touch to your lunch or dinner, or simply enjoy a sweet treat.

In Papermill cafe you can get wonderful coffee made with passion. You can be sure that the coffee is made from the best raw materials and its production is based on sustainable and green principles. Fresh pastries are offered with the coffee, and there are rumors that they are supplied by one of Tallinn’s most esteemed bakers, Karjase sai.

The cherry on top of Food Hall’s experience cake is the cafe Pavlova. Airy mini cakes are made right before the customer’s eyes in just a few minutes. Sweet clouds made of meringue, whipped cream, berries, and fruits please multiple senses at once: they are both a visual and gastronomical delight. If the cafe’s signature dish is not for you today, you will certainly find a suitable treat from the selection of puffs and éclairs. You can’t find their equals elsewhere in the city center!

Let’s meet in Food Hall, where everyone can find something to whet their appetite – be it traditional and local, exotically exciting, light and vegetarian, richly, spicily piquant, or delicately sweet.
