For rushed city-dwellers, BALTS (“white”) is a healthy alternative for a quick meal. BALTS offers both sit-down and take-away food options that will satisfy your well-being and health, as well your busy schedule. Encoded in the eatery’s name are the concepts of cleanliness and wholesomeness, which translates into the use of only fresh ingredients that are clearly recognizable in every bite.
The lunch menu consists of a heated dish with either rice or udon noodles as a base, and sides such as salmon in coconut sauce, chicken teriyaki, butter-fried portobello mushrooms, etc. Packaged cool dishes – lined-up and ready for take-away in the refrigerated display case – include sushi, salads, snacks, and soup packs. For the soup packages (containing, for example, blanched vegetables, slow-cooked chicken or salmon, and bullion), all you have to do is add hot water. Thirty minutes before closing time, everything in the refrigerated display case is reduced in price by 30% – a very good deal for those who like to come home with a ready dinner in hand.
BALTS is located in an airy space with historic brickwork, charmingly cracked in places and covered with a coat of fresh, clay-coloured paint indicative of the walls’ building blocks – all of which gives the place an earthy feel that is enhanced with accents of green succulents. Perceptive customers will notice the subtle, barely-there Eastern references in the harmoniously contemporary design of the restaurant (interior design by Zane Tetere-Šulce).
From a practical standpoint, the layout of the diner – with a long communal table and shared wall tables – is well-suited for larger crowds at peak lunchtime hours. (High table heights also allow for stand-up eating if necessary.)
No need to worry about the disposable tableware at BALTS – only environmentally-friendly, biodegradable packaging, dishes, and eating utensils are used.
