Having Frog in Tallinn 2

People can hardly find frog as the main ingredient in Norwegian cuisine. To my surprise, I can find frog meat all over Tallinn: from fresh meat in supermarket to delicious dishes on the menu. In Mõõkkala, a seafood restaurant, I ordered a pan-fried frog legs appetizer. Don’t laugh, it really looked like a pair of man’s muscular legs. It tasted like chicken with the texture in between chicken breast and thigh. However, I think the congee with frog meat would be the best way to have it. The frog meat was much tender and juicier. Main course is the restaurant’s special, grilled swordfish. Presentation is wonderful: like a Baked Alaska, the fillet was covered with a fluffy egg-white. However, this still could not compensate for the dryness of the fish. To my surprise, the french fries are so crispy that I ate them all.

Here in supermarkets, we could find lots of items. Most of them were well-known brands from oversea. I tried to checkout some local products; and the packages were similar to those foreign ones. This reminds me of the situation within EU: Globalization, not only has mono-toned our daily lives; but also our values in style, taste, etc. Tallinn’s trendy restaurants, like other in Paris, Hong Kong, and Stockholm, have the same design and atmosphere, using similar utensils and presentations. Rack of Lamb must stand tall, flounder in the curve-shaped, garnishes are of similar varieties too. Feel like dining in from one fast food restaurant to another. Hope this is only a trend: one that cannot be missed out in Norway or Estonia.
