The Polpo with its history of Mediterranean cuisine has been a noteworthy place in Tartu since its opening. Rarely, however, hasit stolen the limelight. This is changing. The kitchen at the Polpo is now helmed by Ken Trahv, oneof the most talented young chefs in Tartu. Head chef at the Fii, heis a main actor in lifting the town’s gastronomy from its long slumber. The Polpo now offers modern casual dining, Ken Trahv’s signature cuisine #2.The chef’s characteristic style is dominated by visual appeal and innovation. See also: potato tartare. The potato is“medium boiled” and finely chopped. The creamy sparkling wine sauce gives the potato an unexpected festive, slightly sour flavour, which is counter balanced by crushed hazelnuts. The saltiness of the herring roe, dyed black with squid ink, gives the simple dish its final touch. The cuisine at the Polpo is clearly upand coming. It will be interesting to see how the author will share his attention and creative touch between two signature cuisine restaurants...
