Chili Pizza is a popular Lithuanian pizzeria chain. Today we paid a visit to one located in Lithuanian beach town of Palanga.
Chili Pizza in Palanga, Lithuania
Located in multi storey building on lively walking street in Palanga, very close to the Sea Bridge, this place serves traditional Lithuanian cuisine, which is pretty European, thus there are few Lithuanian specialties you should try once in Lithuania. For example big stuffed dumpling called cepelinai or didžkukuliai, no, it's not the same as Georgian khinkali, according to Wikipedia:
Cepelinai or didžkukuliai (singular: cepelinas) is a popular dish in Lithuania. They are a type of dumpling made from grated and riced potatoes and usually stuffed with ground meat, although sometimes dry cottage cheese (curd) or mushrooms are used instead. So named because their shape resembles that of a Zeppelin airship, cepelinai are typically around 10–20 cm long, although the size depends on where they are made: in the westerncounties of Lithuania cepelinai are made bigger than in the east. After boiling, the cepelinai are served with sour cream sauce and bacon or pork rinds.
Lithuanian cuisine consists a lot from potato dishes, and so I was tempted to try Rich Breakfast offer from Chilli Pizza, which seemed nicely made from potato pancakes

Once I saw this small dish I remembered the offer from House of Food in Liepāja - poor man's soup, and I told to the charming English speaking waitress, that above meal doesn't looks filthy rich for me, rather it's Poor man's breakfast. Should I tell that waitress didn't get me?
Anyway - Chili Pizza is a budget friendly place serving decent meal. Enjoy.
