Pelmeņi Riga Reviews
Cheap and Cheery Station Cafe Jun 21, 2014
I know, doing a review on a station cafe.. Not exactly haute cuisine..
Well, no it is not, but this traditional cafeteria style place is not only good value for money, but serves super Russian soup. Solyanka varies in content depending on vegetables in season, but usually consists of a tomatoe soup base, sausage, olives, potatoe, and is served with sour cream and black bread. The pelmini is also popular (rather like Italian stuffed pasta. Also served with sour cream).
NB. One thing to note though; it is self service so make sure you do not confuse the sour cream with mayonnaise!
The place is very popular with locals and always has a steady throughput of trade. So, you will never dine alone!
Price for the soup is €1.75, which includes bread and sour cream topping. The pelmini is €1.20, and sweets and drinks are roughly €0.75, For the cost conscious, I certainly recommend a visit if you are in Riga.
