There used to be a time I would bring all the people who came to visit me in Estonia to Must Lammas as that unknown place in Sauna was surely worth a visit.
Good food, experimental yet-not-kinky main dishes, good wines and fair prices were everything I needed to surprise my guests with a dining experience one would not expect to find there.
Yet, unfortunately time changes. Menus get different over the years. And for some reasons prices never stay the same. Nor decrease. Never.
Probably the best Caucasian experience in the Old Town
Before sounding too mean to the people who served me many appreciated meals over the years, I need to make one thing clear: Must Lammas offer GOOD food to its customers.
It might not be mouth watering, it won’t be aesthetically too impressive but it tastes good.
Sometimes even damn good, if you order the only dish offered in the fish section of the menu: the Kutap (12.70 Eur)– a stewed trout with estragon, raisins and plum – or the Ktshush (13.50 Eur) – a dish of stewed mutton with eggplant, paprika and French beans.
A little cheaper = a lot better
As mentioned in the intro, if one should seek negative points about Must Lammas in Tallinn, these could not avoid mentioning the prices in the menu.
I am not sure about the intentions the owners of Must Lammas had but, trust me, although the place looks and feels nice, asking 5.70 Euros for a Basturma appetizer really seems out of this world.
Over the years everything got a little less tasty and pricier than it used to be, bringing even a 0.75cl of house wine up to 16.60Euros – too much for its quality and too much for being the year 2011.
I truly hope to soon change my mind (and my review) about Must Lammas but, as for now, the place does not out-stand in the Tallinn dining scene nor beats terrific competitors of its very same category as Aed, Kloostri Ait and Leib.
