Exoticism in Ida-Viru County
To date, Ida-Viru County remains an underrated travel destination. However, there is enough exotic, and at times also extreme entertainment to warrant a weekend visit. And, as a value added bonus, you’re guaranteed to not leave hungry. The best Georgian cuisine (which is also exotic!) in Estonia is offered at Mimino, a gastropub in the suburbs of Jõhvi, along the Tallinn-St Petersburg road, next to a gas station and a mechanic’s shop (which is also exotic!). Sure, the location might raise some doubts, but don’t be discouraged. The restaurant with a somewhat theatrical interior offers the best of Georgian cuisine, quality food, prepared with Georgian gusto, mellowed by the stability of Estonian management; there’s herb-fragrant lamb- and beef kharcho, chahohbili chicken stew with tomatoes and spices, as well as a chocolate zamtari cake, to name but a few of the Caucasus region’s gut-busting delicacies. You’d also be wise not to drive anywhere after visiting Mimino as the generous pours of remarkable quaffs are definitely worth trying; Georgian beer, wine, cognac and chacha, a high-octane grappa (which is also exotic!)..
