After waking up real late from our Valentine, we decided to chill it down for today. Im literally lounging in the living room at my brother’s while I’m writing this, but thought I’d share some of today’s places, just to give you that insider info in case you decide to visit Vilnius one day.. which I really recommend if you love a European city filled with interesting history and many quiet streets with more hidden treasures than you can imagine.
As I mentioned in my previoous post, I woke up to a roaring headache and needed some cafeine to shoot me awake. One place I really love to get my java is Coffee Inn. I totally love the feel of this coffee house, besides the fact that they have amazing good coffee, because in the same place you can buy books, so its a library combined with a coffee house.. What a great idea! And alongside the standard tables and chairs, they have these window benches with pillows on so you can chill out while enjoying ur cup of Joe. Ofcourse I couldn’t drink my capuccino without munching on a delicious chocolate brownie ;)
For late lunch, we went to another place that is newly opened since just a week, but what a great idea for a restaurant! Called “Kuku Muku” (excuse the link, a newsarticle about Kuku Muku in Lithuanian, apparently they don’t have a site yet), you don’t really know what to imagine, but upon entering the place you soon realize that the person who created this concept is a genius. First, we came into the lobby and found a big bucket of blue plastic wraps that we had to put on over our shoes. You enter a bright, modern, fully equipped big play pen for kids! The restaurant is designed with soft cushions and all over you can find every toy in the world, plus hanging from the ceiling a swing for the kids to play in, a small room with lego walls, a stage with full light system and so much more. The food wasn’t the best I’ve had, but just the detail in every little thing was so amazing. Straws were made from paper, childproof, with cute little clouds around the top, the menu came in a cute cardboard box with toys in them, seats were cushioned, fresh juices came in small milk bottles, and no cola is served ;) In short: a perfect place to eat out without having to worry about your kids, because they can play around freely and you can eat without worry. Wonderful, KUKU MUKU :-)
We then strolled around town a bit, but that didn’t last too long because of the still freezing weather outside, and because my 1 yr old niece was getting tired. Getting back to their house, I played around with her, took over her playhouse, much to her dismay, and then just chilled for the day. While I finish typing this post, Im just recovering from some heavy spicy Indian food.Ordered in from the usual place we always go to, called Sue’s Indian Raja. I can enjoy some spice sometimes, but boy do they like it hot ! Some good curry rice, spicy chicken and vegetable rolls, we had a good calm dinner, different from last night’s crazyiness. Nothing like a good quality weekend with a touch of romance. Thank you for checking in and until the next one, adieu.. or as they say here “Labas!”
Love, Shar – xo
