Riga and Muusu

A weekend in Riga and what would be better to spend time on than eating? Not even spas.

We went to Muusu to check the culinary scene out.

A very nice, cozy but yet modern restaurant. It was very reasonable priced at a first look and when the food arrived it was for sure! The dishes were well thought through and beautifully plated. Tasty but delicate. When comparing to restaurants with * or ** in Michelin this one definitely deserves one star both with food and service. It is a restaurant I truly recommend and would return to.

What’s up with all these burnt crusts and other burnt things to eat?! Nope, I will not jump on this one. If my stuff is burnt, I’ve messed up!

First dish was a goat cheese salad with

Main was chicken with

For dessert I went for the

Another dessert was the

Could not eat all the time so we took a tour via some of the touristy spots.

Honey cake. It was a special creation with a nice, rich flavor and not too sweet at all, but a bit crumbly.

Due to a horrible and extreme flu I was happy to be able to tourist from the hotel window. 🙂

China Tang – Cantonese food

Located at the Dorchester the iconic, art-deco interior is designed to evoke the romanticism of the Thirties. China Tang is said to offer some of the best and most authentic Cantonese food outside of China.

Me and the trench coat took a walk and was seated for lunch.

First there was a basket of assorted Dim Sum, some Har Kau (scrimp dumpling), Siu Mai (pork dumpling), Chiu Chow dumpling, vegetable dumpling and vegetable spring roll.

The tastes were clean and fresh and vegetables crispy. Cooked perfect, but as in most cases this sauce lady would have liked something else that hot-hot chili sauce to dip in. Clear that result is down to the ingredients.

Next was an tomato and egg drop soup. I love tomato soup and I love eggs. But have not tried them combined before and must say I was a bit skeptical, but it was very fresh, light and something I could do at home sometime.

Next dish was Hong Kong classic mixed meat and seafood noodle with greens and oyster sauce. Chicken and pork was amazingly tender and the taste was crisp and healthy. Noodles I would have liked less burnt.
