Enjoy the exclusive menu of Alūksne region

Alūksne Tourism information centre in co-operation with several public catering enterprises has made an exclusive menu of the region that hopefully will be appreciated by Alūksne inhabitants and guests.

Each year the exclusive menu will be altered and supplemented. This year several cafes and recreation places responded to the offer and included different meals in their menus. The café “Ābols” offers chicken fillet roll “Little Train”, pork chops in local style, clear soup with specific crumbs and even a dessert with these crumbs.

Some meals with explicit local names you can enjoy in the café “Gustiņš”, but the café “Pajumte” has prepared an offer which includes hot salad “Temple Hill”, the main course “107 steps till delight” and cream “Lake Marienburg Islands”.

Visiting the country tourism and recreation centre “Jaunsētas” at Katrīnkrogs, you can taste lunch in the local style.

There is also a special offer at the recreation centre „Jolanta”. There you can enjoy salad “Katrīna’s Caprice”, cream soup “Hat Island”, pancakes “Afternoon snack at Castle Fountains”, barbecued ribs “Baron Alexander’s Lunch”, dessert “Little Temple”.

The meals have specific names of places or people of Alūksne region. For example, several catering enterprises offer meals with specific crumbs and delight us with peculiar names of meals emphasising the historical objects and distinguished personalities of the region.
