      Zemaiciai - Borscht with meat off the bone

On our first evening in Vilnius in August 2006 we were quite hungry as we had had a busy day involving a long bus ride and had been settling into our B&B accomodation.

One of the first Lithuanian restaurants that drew our attention was Restaurant Zemaiciai, which due to its central location probably is a bit touristy. They have a little outdoor terrace on the pavement and the interior is an underground network of ancient catacombs.

The menu offers many traditional Lithuanian dishes as well as international cuisine. I ordered roast pork on a spit with boiled rice and my friend opted for the borscht with meat off the bone and a hot boiled potato. Borscht is a traditional East European beetroot soup.

The meals were delicious, but service was a bit slow. The bill was 46,50 Litas (about 14 Euro, 2006) and included two drinks. This is still cheap for west European standards but already a bit on the pricey side in Vilnius.
