Your Riga food tour will kick off with a stroll around the bakeries, bars and small grocery stores that dot the city. Taste a range of seasonal Latvian specialties: fresh cottage cheese with dill, hemp-seed butter served on a traditional Latvian dark bread, locally brewed beer and, of course, Riga balsam – a herbal liqueur that you can’t leave town without trying.
We’ll also explore a creative quarter, known as The Republic of Miera (Peace in English). In this area you’ll find various local business, including small shops, wineries and pubs. There’s also a famous chocolate factory located here, and yes, we’re going to stop in!
A local brewery is located just in a few minutes’ walk from here, so we’ll head over to grab some excellent craft beer. Raise a glass with your new friends as we talk about our foodie travels in Latvia and beyond.
We’ll finish our tour with a meal at family-run restaurant that’s owned by none other than your tour guide! The family will take care of your dinner and serve you a seasonal Latvian dish.
No matter the time of year, or the day of the week, this Riga food tour is a delight for anyone interested in the flavours of Latvia, and is sure to leave you with a belly that’s full and a smile on your face.
