We landed safely in Riga, after a quick 50 minute flight. We were ready for a beer and a meal so we went straight to Ala Folkklubs- the highest rated Latvian pub. We had some great Latvian beers and some mediocre Latvian cuisine.
We ordered the “beer snack” starter. It was quite good- smoked Latvian cheese with paprika, crispy garlic bread battons, fresh veggies and creamy garlic dip.
I had the traditional Latvian meatballs with sour kraut, creamy tomato caremlized onion sauce, and undercooked French fries. Unfortunately every element of the dish was disappointing. Desperately under seasoned and simultaneously bland and off-putting flavors 😕
