Petrol station restaurant and farm market

Tikupoiss and its surrounding buildings stand out from afar when you are halfway down the Tallinn-Tartu highway. On your way here, you will have got used to driving past tiny country houses, so in comparison everything around and inside Tikupoiss seems disproportionately big. There is no other petrol station restaurant as big as this in Estonia. 

Size attracts first, but the abundance of options next. You can grab a ready meal for the road or wait for a made to order dish to be cooked for you. Before the menu featured more exotic dishes, but now the emphasis is on local foods. We don’t know anywhere else that serves eel soup that can compare to this one with its large pieces of fish and pure flavours.

Once you have filled up on local flavours, you can buy more to take with you from the farmers market kiosk. The combination of a petrol station restaurant and a farmers market is practical but rare. Intrigues most of the passers-by to stop.
