DINING


After spending almost all your money, eating at all the newest and poshest gourmet spots, we strongly recommend to try out the “fairy taily”, residential-bohemian places. The concept unites local traditions both in DIY interiors and grandma’s recipes using mainly local ingredients, add the most curious locations and the warmest atmosphere – a total must! Let’s start with Båznîcas and Laçpléša streets corner. The first thing you notice, is the small worn-out country house complex, unexpectedly squeezed in-between tall and cream coloured pre- war buildings in the old centre. The one with the entrance from Ba- znîcas iela (Nº14) is FAZENDA BAZARS, the trend pioneer. Small local greens and vegetables market (works starting from spring), small bakery at the entrance, scrumptious fresh pies, cakes, cook- ies made according to the special family recipes, than irresistibly cosy dining room for the full course eco local menu. Enter the same house complex from Laçpléša street, and face the funky local DIY fashion MUHAMORS shop, that also sells home- made chocolate, herb teas, fresh juices. After this, funky bicycle bar MIIT (10 Låçpléša iela)—order a per- sonally designed bicycle, enjoy hipsters wave and try their irresist- ibly cheap and inventive business lunch, perfect new music on the background.
