There are numerous places in Rīga, Latvia where you can enjoy traditional cuisine. Often with wooden outdoor areas in front of the restaurant as it is usual in Eastern Europe. A good one is the Vecmeita ar kaki (which translates to ‘maiden with a cat’) next to the unimposing but important castle of Rīga.
What I really enjoyed while travelling through the Baltic states is herring – it also seems to be part of every good breakfast. At the Vecmeita ar kaki you can also enjoy sour herring just served with potatoes. Simple but delicious.
