Wild country tales on a windswept island
Until Ungru came along, Hiiu County, comprised of a smattering of islands, was off the Estonian restaurant-radar, even though it has always attracted visitors. The main island of Hiiumaa, with its rich forests, marsh lands and remarkable wildlife (elk, deer, wild boar, lynx, fox and some 250 bird species!), is a bountiful larder of local goodies, made for gastronomic exploration and experimentation. And though there are plenty of guesthouses on the island, Ungru, housed in the harbor’s former customs building, is the one you’ll want to hit up, it’s intimate, it has an exciting history, and best of all, it boasts a restaurant. The barque Hioma was built in the very same harbor, she was the first Estonian ship to round Cape Horn. Ungru’s seaside accommodations are comfortable; the food is creative, melding tradition with modern cooking methods; the really short menu features nine dishes in total, ranging from virgin herring with pumpkin, herring roe, egg and potato, to slow cooked pork with pepper sauce, roasted carrot mustard, onion cream and fried potato, and juniper créme brûlée. All is served with a side of storytelling, the staff is happy to share the region’s past. Once you have finished your meal, order a cup of tea made with handpicked wild herbs, and let the tall tales begin!..
