Innovation and storytelling
Reinventing classic Lithuanian dishes with modern techniques and presentation, Uoksas focuses on high quality local products while incorporating a sense of history and tradition, as well as a dose of Nordic esthetics. Take for instance their rye bread broth with quail egg, smoked eel and cucumber, it’s an interpretation of the typical fisherman’s tidbit of dark rye bread, a boiled egg and said smoked, slithery fish, modernized with an unexpected texture as a cold soup. Patés and purées are prepared particularly well. For many food connoisseurs, these dishes are already yesterday’s news, but the consistency of Uoksas’ preparations are precisely between purée and foam, a masterful achievement in its own right. Opt for the four- or six course tasting menu at dinner and toss in the wine pairing, it’s a culinary walk through Lithuania’s new gastronomic landscape. Or stop by for lunch and enjoy a few of the á la carte lunch-creations. Uoksas dining room has a certain school cafeteria-charm with its sparse décor and exposed brick wall, the atmosphere, however, is warm and the service attentive and friendly. The savory doughnuts with onion are a hit, and the beet granite and kohlrabi- and apple cider sorbet with brown cheese ganache and black currants is another innovative take on sweet endings...
