Thinking of grabbing some small snacks for the ferry journey? Or have you had the time of your life at Tallinn’s bar scene the night before and now you want to eat something quick, tasty and vegetarian? Head to Papa Joe at the harbor!
Papa Joe offers tasty falafel and hummus with a variety of side dishes from salads to pitas (they also have options for chicken and beef if you prefer that). This is one of the few places in Tallinn where you can find authentic Lebanese cuisine for very reasonable prices. Manager Joseph’s roots are in Lebanon but he has lived in Estonia for years and luckily, decided to share his recipes and food with us.
It is quite a tiny place but it has a few tables next to the counter and furthermore, friendly service in different languages. Most of the food is made on the spot, and for example, the falafels are completely made of chickpeas and tasty spices. Also, as a fan of hummus and a frequent ferry traveler, I really appreciate the possibility to pick up fresh food right at the harbor.
After eating, you can also head to the Sadama Turg for souvenirs and other goodies for food-lovers, as Papa Joe is located right next to it.
