FoodBox – Probably the best kebab in Riga

Yes, I dare say such a statement because the owner of the place is a Turkish man, Ugur, who has lived in Riga for many years. Very often you can meet him there – he serves the food himself, supervising the entire process and chatting with long-term clients.

This is also one of the oldest kebab places in Riga (since 2008) because kebab-eating culture has not been around in Riga for long. Now there are lots of kebab places, but FoodBox keeps high standards for food quality and also has an authentic atmosphere. The Turkish embassy in Latvia is located nearby and people from there often drop by to have lunch, so it is an implicit sign of the food quality. FoodBox provides fast and friendly service, not “fast food”.

My favorite combination is the chicken kebab in lavash with yogurt sauce and no onions. But there is also beef and lamb available with spicy sauce as well as falafel and sometimes also freshly made baklava. The food is also available for take-away but, in summertime, there is an outdoor terrace to slowly enjoy the freshly made meal on the spot. There is also black tea served in small, typical glasses and you can have as much of it as you want during the meal.
