A Lithuanian Village in the Heart of Alameda

“I love the cream of mushroom soup because it warms my tummy. I also like the homemade sausages because they’re not spicy and they make me feel good, and I don’t like spicy because it makes me freak out.” — Natalia Olveira, 7-year-old Alameda resident Vaidas Sukys opened the doors to Mama Papa Lithuania Restaurant six years ago as he dreamt of sharing the cultural heritage and culinary traditions of Lithuania. “My goal was to stick a small anchor in the center of the West Coast and Alameda was that perfect center,” said Sukys. With help from his mother, a professional chef who holds court in the kitchen, Mama Papa produces Lithuanian classics that have captivated the taste buds of East Bay residents. From the heavy wooden tables and chairs fit for Vikings and ploughmen alike, to the exposed brick walls, delicate lace curtains, and a bucolic village vibe, Sukys has most certainly achieved his vision. Outdoor seating is also available in the beer garden behind the restaurant. A loyal band of customers travel from far and wide, with or without Eastern European heritage, to experience soul-satisfying recipes such as the classic borscht served with a side of rye bread, golden-fried potato pancakes, stuffed cabbage rolls, or the chicken goulash fit for bitter winter months. Regulars also enjoy a nurturing bowl of cream of mushroom soup, savory homemade sausages served with mashed potatoes and cabbage stew, and the ever-popular flour dumplings with a choice of fillings and topped with a mighty dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of fresh dill. There’s something uniquely Bay Area about a tiny Lithuanian restaurant that has the power to unite a disparate group of people over an unusual class of comfort food. 1241 Park St., Alameda, 510-522-4100,  ...
