Hakkliha pannkook aka pancakes / crepes with minced meat, red cabbage and sour cream – with the ever-present dill sprinkled on top. This dish is very typical of Estonia, or at least it’s served all over the place.

A bottle of hard liquor from Japan. It’s strong stuff,  61 % alcohol by volume. With flavors ranging from fermented canned pineapple to overripe peaches and some other fruity notes, it’s surprisingly goog but 2 cl is all you really want to have at any one time.
