Riga, capital city of Latvia, received its first kosher restaurant last fall: Meating Place. The restaurant serves meat, fish and poultry dishes. It is under the kosher supervision of Rabbi Kalev Krelin of KosheRiga.

The restaurant is open Monday – Thursday from 1-8pm, and shorter on Fridays. We recommend contacting the restaurant in advance to confirm times.

Last week a new Kosher Dairy Cafe named “7:40” also opened in Riga. The Café is located in the building of the Jewish Centre at сколас 6 (entrance from the street dzirnavu downstairs).

The Café has a kosher certificate кошрута from KosheRiga (Р.К.Крелин) and EEK (East European Kosher certification to the conference rabbis of Europe).

    Actually there already was one kosher (meat) restaurant, L’Chaim, which I’ve been to myself many years ago when visiting my birthplace with my babushka Leah Evenstein. I don’t know if it’s still open but the Chabad website still describes it. See http://www.chabad.lv/templates/articlecco_cdo/aid/1737146. It’s in Russian but translated it says:

    Kosher Cafe “Lechaim”

    Breakfasts, lunches, dinners.
    Challah on Shabbat, delicious pastries, necessary for the Holidays Judaica.
