Nice place for tea
Posted on 03 / 25 / 2012
'Arbatine' is in the very center of Kaunas, very easy to find. The interior is nice and cozy. The place is very popular with elderly ladies and health-conscious individuals.
Most of the dishes are vegetarian, but if they run out of agar agar (for example), they can use animal-derived gelatin in some meals. They never properly disclose non-vegan ingredients of their meals, even if you ask they might not tell the truth (seriously). Most of their rolls are not vegan (you have to ask about ingredients). Their white soy sauce is made of soy powder that contains casein (again, maybe things are different now, so you have to ask). Also, they sell fish oil and some other non-vegan supplements.
The menu is in Lithuanian only and the staff do not speak much English.
Still, if you are lucky, you can get a nice meal. They usually have vegan salad. All the portions are quite small, but the food is tasty.
Nice place, Yummy teas
Very few vegan options, No clear information about ingredients
