Modern approach
to classic Lithuanian cuisine


By substituting the potato with zucchini or pumpkin or eggplant and such creates completely new blends of the Lithuanian cuisine.

Our addition of Asian flavours to the stocks, substituting yoghurt for cream or adding soy to koldunai creates fundamental changes to a cuisine thousand of years in the making

Sunday lunches, cheap and nourishing

Discover our eateries in every capital city community centre, Sundays especially


Each community throughout Australia caters for special lunches every weekend, but mainly on Sundays after midday mass has finished. Generally the choice is not extensive but will feature one of two dishes, all conveniently made at our clubs by volunteers. Any profits left over from the costs of manufacture – Remember, FREE LABOUR – go to the community chest box to help with maintaining of the community halls and activities.
