Kohalik (“a local”) from the New World
The New World, a district located right outside the heart of Tallinn. The buildings here are smaller; there is more space, as well as greenery. No random citizens lives here. For somebody coming from the Old Town, this might indeed look like a new world.
An essential meeting place of this world is a restaurant called Kohalik. This restaurant does not take pains to attract customers. Most of the dishes have been on the menu since the restaurant was opened. Nonetheless, there are plenty of people that come to eat here without looking for a change.
For example, try their simple chicken liver pâté with onion jam and evergreen syrup and you will be charmed. You will want to go back at any time and eat more and more of that pâté. To create a bit of variety and excitement however, the restaurant has a constantly changing barrel of surprise beer. Make sure to try their homemade chokeberry schnapps.
It is almost as if the New World is not Tallinn. People here keep to themselves. They lead simple yet quality lives!
