Lighter lunch deal for summer: soup and salad 06/19/2015 Jurgis ir drakonas: sriuba ir salotos

Even though Jurgis ir Drakonas started with pizzas and they are our best sellers, we pay a lot of attention to our other dishes as well. We work hard on soups and salads, especially now when it’s summer and lighter dishes are preferred. Our goal is for them to be always fresh, tasty, unique and different. The JD chefs are always adding seasonal options. This is why JD salads are always fresh and soups are interesting.

Variety is one of the most important aspects – if you eat soup in our restaurants all month every day – they will never be the same! We offer a wide range of creamy soups, unexpected combinations such as beetroots and nduja, chickpeas and Chorizo. And of course some classic soups – tomato soup made of sweetest San Marzano type tomatoes, Scandinavian mushroom soup…And now that the summer is here – we could not survive without Gazpacho.

We are also very proud of JD salad bar – it is a source of freshness and taste!!! You will find 3 different salads everyday. You can choose size of portion – large or small plate. Also you can choose 1 or 2 salads that you want to eat and one of five best salad sauces. All kinds of salad live there – starting vegetarian and ending with meat / cheese / grains. You can find this salad bar in Akropolis and Ogmia restaurants. And our Pylimas restaurant is a small one, so there is no salad bar, however they always have different fresh and tasty salad of the day!

We think that there is no-one who would refuse a bowl of Gazpacho and salad with beetroot and feta balls…Or maybe you would like to try beetroot soup with nduja and special Beata’s salad with mango, feta and roasted Prosciutto? Come and have healthy, fresh, tasty, unexpected and everyday – different lunch!

New pizzas in our menu 06/15/2015 Seafood pizza

Hurray! We have good news for all pizza lovers!

New pizza ‘Seafood’.

We had plans to offer seafood pizza for some time now, but it was delayed because of lack of good quality seafood. But recently Tom and Michele went to Italy and found premium quality seafood there. Of course, we shipped this seafood to Lithuania!  Michele baked pizza bread with tomato sauce, garlic and oregano, which goes perfectly with seafood and vuola –  pizza for all seafood lovers was born. Pizza is not the only way to try this seafood – you cal also order it as a side dish! It’s especially recommended to try with a green salad.

Most popular month’s special pizzas are back!

Every month we offer different special pizza. Some of them become really popular and customers wants to order them after that month. So we are happy to announce that the most popular month’s special pizzas are back! Starting today, you can find miss February ‘Cheesy’ and miss April ‘Vegan’ in our menu.

Cheesy pizza is special for all the cheese lovers. Even 5 types of cheese are combined here – necessary Mozzarella and Parmesan, the delicious Cheddar and gourmet Emmental and Blue cheese.  We love all kinds of cheese so we spend a lot of time and effort while choosing best quality that we can serve for our customers. Mozzarella and parmesan come straight from Italy while we buy other types of cheese in local gourmet shops.

Vegan pizza is also special, because it was found during last JD team trip to Naples in pizzeria 50calor. Beata saw a beautiful green pizza coming from the oven. We told we want to try it and after we did we realized that it is FANTASTIC! We tried to make similar pizza with the help of our Italian chef Michele, who knew the recipe. So with his help we created our vegan pizza -shortly stewed roman salad with a little bit of garlic and extra virgin olive oil. As there is no cheese, protein comes with the help of nuts: walnuts, pine nuts and pumpkin seeds. And finally some taste torpedos – cherry tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, capers and olives. This delicacy immediately became beloved even by those who can’t live without cheese and meat.

Whole grain pizza base – tasty and healthy.

Now you can order your favorite pizza with whole grain flour pizza base. This rustic flour is ground in a special way which lets to preserve all grain’s nutrition: fiber, B vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. You have to try it – the taste and the structure of the base is really special.
