Tallinn’s Old Town is a true medieval spectacle, like I wrote in a previous post - Tallinn, Estonia: A Walk Down Medieval Memory Lane. The ancient-looking streets looked exactly the same as it did back in the 15th Century; the only difference is the modern interiors at many of the street-side cafes. Still old, I recommend Tallinn for anyone who wants to experience an authentic Eastern European trip.
Located outside of the main Old Town, I walked a mile down a semi desolate-looking road to what seems like a street that never ends. Along the way, I found a few Estonian cats waving their tales in the windows of the locals.
I entered Bliss and my eyes caught onto the chic and vibrant décor that splashed a bit of Bohemian living amidst open-air windowed walls. Speaking English is not common outside of the Old Town, but luckily a girl who knew enough English explained to me how it works at Bliss.
Each person receives a bliss card and you can make unlimited trips to the buffet since they weigh the plate by the 100 grams. After meandering through the aisles, my soul yearned to dip my finger in every ounce of homemade dessert and ice cream.
I sniffed the rising steam wafting a top of the main courses and let my nose and stomach guide me to the best. As you can see, I tried several sides with my favorite being the squash soup. I love soup. It’s like a deep love affair and somehow its one of the best things that I cook.
Encapsulated by the carrot salad, I couldn’t help but snap a few photos. Meanwhile, that is a mistake. Bliss does not allow photographs of their space. I understood their point of view, but found it to be a bummer since I wanted to write about it. But, I wouldn’t let that stop you. Sadly, because of this I couldn’t show you the miraculous cakes or the decadent lattes overflowing with froth.
I ended my meal with sweet potato fries. Yes, it tastes just like home. Normally, I refrain from anything fried, but after walking 16-miles in 3 days, my body craved fat like no other.
When in Tallinn, take a walk or a ride, to Bliss where blissology meets foodology for no other study better than the one inside your mouth.
