Planeta Sushi (Šķūņu 16, Riga) – for those in a mood for Japanese food, this place is a good start. Heavy glossy menus illustrate the dishes on offer. Predictably these include a range of bento spreads, the pick of which is probably the Ninniku Bento with its tiger shrimps fried in ninniku sauce with rice and sesame seeds, accompanied by a light miso shiro soup, four pieces of sake avocado maki and a slice of salmon sashimi. All bento dishes are priced at €7, which also includes green tea or black coffee. Planeta Sushi’s menu can also be interactive – create your own rice-based dish using various ingredients. Or you can treat yourself to teppan steak (€17), with 10 or 12 pieces of juicy beef that have been marinated in a rich sauce.
