This Samsa kiosk you may find at Tallinn railway station, but beware! The area of the railway station looks poor and shabby, it has the smell of a cheap food market, railway lubricants and god-knows-what-else. The walls around are covered with primitive tags, old posters and stools of pigeons. Groups of hopeless alcoholics drink cheap eau de cologne, bums sleep on the benches, dodgy junkies look around for some easy money and old babushkas spread brochures and words of new Christian sect’s beliefs. It’s a Tallinn bottom and the entourage is specific.
The place is dominated by a passengers’ pavilion faced with local dolomite and original arched windows from 70s. Right in front of it in a green kiosk Russian women prepare national uzbek pies and cakes. I don’t know how Uzbek they are, but these warmed up pies taste surprisingly good. They taste even better at night for me and my friends, it’s a quick and fair food for starving night wanderers and raiders.
I have tried probably all the pies from this kiosk already and my favourite ones are with chicken and cheese or bananas. The cherry ones are also not bad either.
