    These cuisine looks delicious! I will be honest with you but during my visit in Lithuania I didn't eat any of these dishes! It was many years ago. I went there with to visit a friend, a local one. But he only took me out for eating pizza and of course, to sooo many bars. If I ever visit him again, I will definitely show him your article and tell him that I want to eat all this! The potato pacnkackes look amazing by the way :)

    Okay, so I think I would weigh a million pounds if I lived in Lithuania! It all sounds divine, though, especially since it is way past my supper time. I am also a huge potato fan, so I'm sure Lithuania and I would get along just fine!

    I actually had a great time in Lithuania as a vegetarian, and was pleasantly surprised by the food on offer. Obviously I missed out on all the meat and fish dishes you mention, but I loved the potato dumplings!

    Love the sound of all those potatoes and cheese! I might be able to tempt my daughter to try the beet soup as she loves anything pink! The pastry pockets look just like Cornish pasties.

    Alright, all of this looks great (potato pancakes, especially), but you can keep the pickled herring and beet soup. I'd try it, but I don't think I'd like it. :-)

    I've not heard of black bread. What gives it the dark color? I like dark brown bread, like molasses bread, but I'm not a fan of rye bread. Some of these look super tasty, and others I'd have to push myself, but I would try! You never know what you are going to end up liking!

    I'm with you on the love for potatoes! Potato Dumplings and Pancakes sound awesome, and a cheese salad? Cheese is my favorite food group and if I could have a salad made out of it I would more than likely be the size of a house if I lived in Lithuania - but I would be incredibly happy!

    I am from Europe but these food proposals look very exotic to me! I am not very adventurous when it comes to food but I would definitely try the kebab, the kibinia (kind of samosas?) and the potato pancakes

    We visited Lithuania last year, absolutely loved it, we tried the fried bread and black bread as well as the beat soup! Different but really tasty!

    Yum! Lots of these sound great! I would especially love to try the potato pancakes, the fried bread with garlic and cheese, the kebabs and the potato dumplings. The cheese salad sounds quite interesting, too!

    Potato pancakes filled with mince meat and bacon gravy - super yum. I wonder if Ed would like that for valentines day. It sounds a lot better than black bread with pork fat, I think that is for day after St Patricks Day breakfast.

    Lithuania does have a good spread on its food platter. The potato variations are amazing. I would prefer the meat kebabs of lamb though. And the beet soup looks utterly nutritious, I am going to try making it with the ingredients you mentioned.

    Wow, this all looks amazing. I love the concept of the cheese "salad", although I think it would be too much cheese for me. The branch cake looks intriguing.

    We almost contemplated Lithuania while booking our spring trip to Europe. The dumplings look so different from the ones we ate in Prague.

    In Romania we also have the pig's fat and we call it slanina. It's so good eaten with raw onions and bread. I would love to go to Lithuania and try the food, I can see a lot of tempting dishes in your list. I think the first on my list would be the potato pancakes, especially when topped with bacon and sour cream.

    Great to find a new cuisine... potato dumbplings look great, probably because I love potatoes anyway. The bett soup is too pink, almost looks like some icecream... lol

    OOh it all sounds and looks delicious? Which one is your ultimate favorite? What is the national dish of Lithuania? I do a blog series on cooking food from every country around the world - what should it be for Lithuania?

    Oh yum! Those food are so yummy looking that I want to actually taste each one. I am particularly intrigued about the cheese salad. I mean, how cheesy can it get, right? :) The stuffed pocket is quite similar to our empanada where we put sweetened minced meat of beef or chicken with some raisins, potatoes, and carrots.

    I find myself being more and more adventurous with food while I'm travelling! Some of this still looks a bit scary to me, but some of it looks amazing! Will definitely remember these if I ever make it to lithuania
