Down Like A Led Zeppelin

Every place in the world has its unique taste, our mission is to try as many local delicacies as possible.

The national dish of Lithuania is the Cepolinai aka ‘Zeppelins’. So named because their shape resembles a distinctive zeppelin airship.

They are a type of dumpling made from grated potatoes and usually stuffed with minced meat. When the waitress brought them out they looked disgusting, the grated potato exterior has a very slimy texture. After biting into them and preparing for the worst, they didn’t taste half as bad as they looked. The meat inside tasted like beef burger, whereas the coat tasted like a strange dumpling mix. Topped with a sour cream sauce this dish was bizarre to say the least.
