The best food for vegans in Riga
Posted on 09 / 24 / 2012
In Riga there aren't many places for vegans to eat, furthermore - if you manage to find a place, probably you will be able to get only potatoes and cabbage salad.
But Stockpot offers something fresh, so to say. Daily menu includes at least two vegan options that are clearly marked with letters VG (so you don't have to interrogate the staff about ingredients). Usuallythey offer something different every day from various cuisines (some examples: chilli con soya, tom kha, dahl, gazpacho), but every day they have tabbouleh + hummus (very tasty).
The atmosphere is really good, and the place is quite small. From the seating area you can see the kitchen and it is very clean and white. This bistro is family-owned - the owner himself is a chef there, and his wife serves food. They are very friendly (and speak English as well).
Full portion costs about 2-3 LVL, but you can get a half portion for half of that sum.
Unfortunately, they do serve meat, but at least you can't feel any smells from cooking it, and it isn't "displayed" there.
If you go there later in the day, you might be left with only one option, because the bistro is very popular and people tend to eat everything during the day :)
near centre of the city, very tasty, affordable
