  LITHUANIAN DONUTS
by matcrazy1
 
 

There was a street cart/stand with an umbrella put by Dviese cafe. Local woman sold there typical Lithuanian "spurga" and larger "ceburekas". They were served warm or even hot.

Spurga? What was that?
Spurga were Lithuanian different donuts filled with minced meat, cabbage, mushrooms etc.


Favorite Dish: Spurga:
- su mesa (with meat - 1.00 Lt)
- su sonine (? - 1.00 Lt)
- su bulvemis (with potatoes - 0.70 Lt)
- su grybais (with mushrooms - 1.00 Lt)
- su kopustais (with cabbage - 0.60 Lt).

Personally I liked those ones with meat and with mushrooms - my recommendation :-).


Address: Vilniaus/V. Kuzmos gatve; LT-3000 Kaunas, Lithuani

Directions: Walk 1-2 min. from northeastern corner of Town Hall Square eastwards Vilniaus gatve (street). The stand was on the right, when you cross V. Kuzmos gatve (street), by Kavine Dviese.
