Prepare for one of the most unexpected culinary tours in Europe - the Real Taste of Riga Experience. The architectural wonders of the Lativian capital serve a spectacular backdrop for exploring the unique tastes of Riga. From the tantalizing smell of local bread baking in the ovens of the city’s many bakeries or the taste of Riga’s beloved chocolates, washed down with shots of the quintessential Latvian liqueur, Riga Balsams or a refreshing local craft beer, Riga is a foodie’s paradise.
Wandering the hostelries, bakeries, wineries, and grocery outlets, your palate will savor the delights on offer while exploring the city from a rather unique perspective. You will taste the local delicacies of freshly prepared cottage cheese with dill, and the mouthwatering bitter sourness of dark bread accompanied by hemp-seed butter. The tour will take you through The Republic of Miera, the city’s creative quarter, a visit to a chocolate factory - tasting is allowed - and to a local brewery to discover the secrets of Latvia’s ancient beer heritage. The tour will culminate with a meal in a satisfyingly unique family-run eatery, owned by your culinary tour guide. An entire experience guaranteed to leave with a beaming smile and a hundred great stories to tell.
