A most unique eatery
Muusu is in a snug, typical two-story building on Skarnu street, just steps away from the Musicians of Bremen-monument and St. Peter’s Church, it’s one of the capital’s most unique restaurants. Tranquil and elegant interiors emphasize the kitchen’s gastronomic aims; impeccably sharp flavors and a remarkable respect for ingredients are top priorities. Dishes marked with an «m» are highly recommended as they’re prepared with local ingredients. Perfectly al-dente black ravioli with eel is one that’s definitely worth trying. Goose liver velouté, Jerusalem artichoke mousse and coal-oven roasted eel are also great choices if you’d like to get acquainted with Chef Kaspars Jansons and his carefully sourced products. Another well-executed starter is the smoke-cured river trout, here served with tomato tartare, ricotta, capers flowes, and a 64-degree egg. Main courses are meat-heavy, from leg of lamb with roasted beets, to duck breast, simmered in red wine, and served with a parade of wheat berries, plum, cloudberry, sea buckthorn, carrots and salsify. Fish lovers would do well to opt for Latvian sturgeon or catfish. Good to know: Muusu’s popular business lunch is served from 12.00 to 4 pm, there’s an abbreviated menu until 6 pm, after which they roll out the full à la carte arsenal...
