Solyanka at Elvi Bistro

Well, I would call this soup actually more hotch-potch than solyanka, because I don't find a soup made from leftover sausages and a tomato sauce anything close to Russian Solyanka. But it tasted good.

The Bottom Line
Bistro Elvi serves a traditional Latvian home style cuisine, unfortunately they keep their food in fridge and just warms it up here. The food is tasty, but I wouldn't call it healthy. If you are driving Rīga - Liepāja, you can make a stop here and try something :) The price is not too highy here - we paid around EUR 18.00 for all above seen food and 3 extra coffees.
