Vilnius: Lithuanian Comfort Food and Coffee

On this trip, I rediscovered Lithuanian food. I recalled everything I liked many years ago, and we made sure never to eat at the same place twice, and try different foods each time.

On the first day, there were zeppelins and Lithuanian kvass, and this kvass was so incredibly good, that we never skipped it:). The one which we tried in the first place was the best though.

Zemaiciu was another thing I had very fond memories of, as well as other kinds of potatoe-based foods.

I even tried potatoes pancakes with pig ears!
And Boris tried potatoes and pork sausage
Forgot this dessert name
Finally got zemaiciu on the last day

And coffee! I believe Lithuanians are incapable of making coffee worse than excellent! Anywhere we stopped for coffee, I didn’t even try to ask for cappuccino or espresso, or whatever specialty coffee. You just ask for coffee, and get something amazing!

And the cakes 🙂

There was a chocolate shop very close to our hotel, and that was the only place where we stopped more than once :). I purchased several boxes to take home, and I never repeated one kind twice, and still I think there were lots of kinds of chocolate left out :). This one, I got for Boris and I – we ate some together in Helsinki and divided the rest 🙂
