A traditional dish in Lithuania is Cepelinai and it is named like this as it looks like zeppelins. Cepelinai are potato dumplings filled with minced meat or quarg. The dish is also famous in Belorussia and Poland and is typically served with a sauce made of cream, onions and bacon.

I had the chance to taste Cepelinai at a tourist restaurant called Girelė close to the hill of crosses (Kryžių kalnas) near Šiauliai, Lithuania. It is a good stop if you’re travelling around in this region.
