Two special dishes dominate the dining scene in Vilnius. Cepelinai are thigh-expanding dumplings made from shaved potato, crammed full with mince or curd and smothered in sour cream. Kibinai are Cornish-pasty-like affairs, stuffed with mutton and onions and sold in pretty much every bakery. Both will cure a hangover in an instant. Those with a sweet tooth won’t want to leave without trying šakotis, or spitcake. This traditional pastry is cooked on a rotating spit over an open fire and is usually covered in chocolate and cute ornamental flowers.
