Extraordinary is not an exaggeration here. Every Estonian loves Baltic sprat but the ones served here are nothing short of amazing; accompanied by rye bread and devoid of that bitter sprat taste so common with this Baltic fish.

Chef Joel Kannimäe is one of the three legendary founders of the equally legendary Põhjaka Restaurant.
