Having read that Lithuanians like the less savoury bits of animals, such as tongue, pork bladders, innards, snout, trotters, etc, I was looking forwards to some good offal.
In the event, at the Medziotoju Uzeiga restaurant, on the main square, we had what Lindsey reckoned was one of the best meals ever – wild boar steaks with mushrooms.
My pudding was equally historic. Above our heads was some strange decor, the theme of the restaurant being things from the forrest.
Many of the restaurants don’t seem to serve dumplings, which are famous in Lithuania. We eventually found some in a restaurant in the Kaunas Akropolis shopping centre.
The potato dumplings with mincemeat in the centre were OK, the potatoes in sausage skins were a great disappointment, and the fried potatoes were excellent.
The tables in the Cili Kaimas restaurant, on the third floor of the shopping centre, were on the edge of an ice rink.
