  1. Not acualy Lithuanin that stuffed cabbage is called " Sarma " originated durring Ottoman conquering of Balcans, Central Europe and Middle East.

  2. Definitely one of the best video on this channel. It's so out of the ordinary that Lithuanian food! Looks utterly delicious with that cabbage and meat.

  3. It's a traditional eastern european dish. Not Lithuanian!!!! https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%93%D0%BE%D0%BB%D1%83%D0%B1%D1%86%D1%8B
    Как обычно, прибалты все лучшее взяли из СССР и выдали за свое.

  4. Cultures were mixing a lot through ages in Lithuania. Besides, every country has similar dishes that neighbours have. No fights, this restaurant represents eastern Europe more or less anyway :). No matter you are polish or lithuanian, we all have things to be proud of.

  5. f*ck this sh*thole Grand Duke's mf's can't even cook right… burn that place down… so f*cking ghetto

  6. My family was from Czechoslovakia and had the same dish and it is good! Let's all come together and celebrate our stuffed cabbage heritage. Eh, that sounded better in my head

  7. For Chicago Lithuanians past and present, there are shirts for sale with more coming soon! High quality. Please check them out!

  8. Sveikučiai visi.Esu tikras lietuvis ir noriu parašyti čia,kad balandėliai ir bulviniai blynai yra valgomi atskirai…Bulviniai blynai valgomi su atvėsintos varškės padažu,pagardintu svogūnų laiškais .(beje varškės padaže turi būti smulkintas-tarkuotas česnakas).Na o balandėliai valgomi su atskirai virtomis bulvėmis,pagardintomis krapais.Ir jie būna raudonam arba baltam padaže.Kaip ir viskas 🙂

  9. Chicago is so much better than L.A when it comes to food diversity. L.A has mostly fucking Mexican restaurants…..good luck finding decent Polish, Irish, Lithuanian, German, or other restaurants that ARE NOT Mexican.

  10. In Lithuania you should definitely try baked bread with hot cheese. This is their visit card, I don't know why Grand Duke don't do this

  11. Bambrough screws up again. Right at the beginning he identifies the Chicago neighborhood as "Harlem"; no such neighborhood in Chicago.
