What dishes come from Vilnius? What was the difference between the table of townspeople and kings? Where was the best beer in the city? What dishes make the Vilnius city famous abroad? The communities, ethnic, religious and social groups living in Vilnius formed a melting pot of cultures, each adding its own spices and accents. Today, many of the dishes in this melting pot have become national – some more well-known, while others still bring the joy of discovery.

The route of this culinary tour winds along the main axis of the The Gate of Dawn – Didžioji – Pilies streets, as if Vilnelė (the river) was turning it to one or the other side. During the tour we will taste various snacks, dishes and drinks related to ethnic and social groups of townspeople, talk about their origin, visit one of the most beautiful places in the city and listen to stories of contemporary city culinary culture. A local food-loving guide will help you to compose the taste code of Vilnius by telling about the origin of various dishes, the secrets of cooking and the peculiarities of eating.
