Food and drink Not surprisingly one of the many specialities in Vilnius is bigos. Bigos is a traditional stew typical for the Lithuanian cuisine that reminds of the German Sauerkraut although typically richer, less sour, and differently seasoned. The recipes vary considerably from region to region and family to family. Ingredients include fresh and fermented white cabbage, tomatoes, different cuts of meat and sausages, honey and even mushrooms. The meats may include ham, bacon, beef and veal. Bigos is usually eaten with bread and potatoes, often come with vodka or dry white wine; many though prefer the dish with chilly cooled local beer. If you have had bigos in Poland or elsewhere, it’s a must to try the Lithuanian one in Vilnius, I guarantee it will taste different from that of other countries.
