dscf2652 We are eating at a country-style restaurant/theme park near Palanga (Lithuania). Lithuanian country cooking is, not surprisingly, different from American, a world unto itself. In addition to a range of potato dishes — from potato pie to potato sausage — you’ll find such, umm, unusual delicacies as pig’s ears and feet. Not even the majority of Lithuanians like them, but my mom and I are crazy about them. For the first time in 10 years I got to indulge my taste in pig’s extremities, to S’s great horror. 🙂 This restaurant had a smoked left pig’s ear on the menu. Yes, [i]left[/i] pig’s ear. Don’t ask me what they did with the right one. Perhaps they served it to people at the opposite side of the room.
